About Pays Miao…
Pays Miao agency was created and run by Françoise Grenot‑Wang.
From 1984 to 1994, she guided tourist groups in China. In 1991, she founded the non-profit organization Couleurs de Chine (Colours of China). In 1998, sponsoring the education of girls from ethnic minorities became its priority.
In December 2008, Françoise Grenot‑Want tragically died when her house burnt down. From then on, Pays Miao has been managed by the team that used to work with her. In 2013, Pays Miao was registered as a rural tourism agency in the Rongshui County (Guangxi)
Françoise Grenot‑Wang recounts her experience through two books (in French):
She was also co‑author of the Guide Bleu du Sud-Ouest de la Chine (Ed. Hachette, 2000).
Finally, in 2008, Françoise Grenot‑Wang started a blog about the daily life of ethnic minorities in the region of Danian: the fifty texts from this blog, about work, family, friendship, beliefs, etc. were collected, edited and published by Hervé Deguine (Dans la Chine des Miao, Hervé Deguine, Bonaventure Editions). They are also available on the website www.couleursdechine.org
