|The Border Guards help people dry anise.|
Promoting the anise-growing model
Pointing to the green hill, Tang Dau Tinh, head of Phai Lau village said, "This cinnamon place belongs to my family, a total of 6 hectares." Tinh said that each year both cinnamon and anise bring his family about VND350-400 million (US$14,877-17,003).
Phai Lau village, Dong Van commune, Hoanh Mo district, Quang Ninh has 96 households, 100% of them are ethnic groups. In the village, there are more than 80% of households grow cinnamon like Tinh's family. Since then, the villager's life changed significantly.
Currently, there is only one poor household in the village, 34 near-poor households remaining are rich and well-off economic families.
According to Tinh, in the past, people's lives were extremely difficult. Life is mainly based on cultivation with poor and backward production methods. Poverty persisted, clinging to people, social evils also arised from there such as drinking, gambling, and violence against women and children.
When the border guards mobilized people to change the production model, the plants and animals to suit the locality, people's lives changed completely.
In particular, anise is suitable for the climatic, soil and ecological conditions of the mountainous areas here. Currently, this tree is being selected by the people of Phai Lau village as a key tree in the strategy of developing the forest economy.
Tinh said in the past, people only knew how to uproot seedlings and bring them back to plant, they did not know how to grow plants in pots.
However, after being guided by the officials, they learned how to grow anise so that it can develop well. Anise has been officially planted on a large scale since 1998 until now.
Since the day of planting anise, people became more aware of the management and protection of the forest. Forests brought legitimate sources of income and created jobs for the locality.
Forest management is also better controlled. In the past, the Dao people cleared forest land to grow rice and corn for food.
Since the management and protection of forests in the border areas has been included in household groups, people realized that growing anise in the areas allocated for cultivation is more effective, and their life is also better from that.
In order to strengthen the close relationship between the army and the people, and promptly grasp the situation in the area, Hoanh Mo Border Guard Station assigned officers and soldiers to be in charge of each village.
By grasping the actual situation of people's lives at the grassroots, the officers and soldiers of the unit guided people about plants and animals, so that they could apply scientific and technical measures, expand scale production and have outputs for their products.

This model brought faith and hope to the people here, contributing to changing farming practices, transforming crop structure, helping local people get jobs, increasing income, and ensuring long-term livelihood. At the same time, this model will be replicated to other localities.
