Pang grew up in a farming community in Karen State, Burma. Fifteen years ago, seeking security away from the ongoing conflict in Burma, his family settled in Thailand. Initially the move was very challenging, as they struggled to find a place to call home and to find work.
Eventually Pang was able to find work on a farm through a friend, and was able to use his prior experience in farming in Burma to great effect.
Pang met his wife while they were both working on the same farm, he says they fell in love in an instant, and they are now blessed with four wonderful children. Pang enjoys his work for The Charis Research and Teaching Farm very much, particularly learning new techniques and discovering more about organic farming.
Pang would love to travel one day with a particular desire to visit America and work on some organic farms there.
