How You can help us

Any help from individuals and organizations is greatly appreciated. You can support us in the following ways:

1. STUDENT SPONSORSHIP
We would like to remind our sponsors and donors that your support will not only help these disadvantaged students but it will also immensely contribute towards the preservation and promotion of our unique culture and tradition of Bhutan.

The sponsorship will go to the neediest students coming from poor or broken families, to orphans and semi-orphans. The overall cost for one student for one year is USD 720/-. This amount covers tuitions, food and lodging. Sponsors can support a student for the full course (6 years) or for a year.

2. SCHOOL DONATION

You can also make a donation directly to the school, which still depends strongly on these contributions. The annual operating budget of the school for 2010 is USD 76,000/-(Seventy Six Thousand Only). This covers all the expenses for tuitions, food and lodging for the 101 students enrolled. About 65% of this amount is being financed by student sponsorships and school donations.

We also have a specific wish list with items that are not part of the operational budget. Currently we have such items on the list as warm water for the students produced by solar panels or equipment for computer classes.
