This group of TDA founders has assisted TMAC since 2000 especially in the “Level One Landmine Impact Survey: LIS” in which many of them took part. They have continued to assist TMAC in minefield reduction activities along border area especially with Cambodia. For instance, during November 2007 to October 2009 this group took part in the “Integrated Area Reduction Survey” project (IARS) that was financially supported of US$ 1,282,070   by the government of Japan via the Japan-ASEAN Integration Fund (JAIF). At the end of 2009, the group also received financial support from the Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) for the minefield reduction project (Clearance and Land Release) at the vicinity of Khaolaem monastery, Naengmud village, Naengmud sub-district, Karbcherng district, Surin province where now both NPA and TDA are back to this site since May 2011 to help reduce hazardous area for the safety of locality.
