Bhutan Homestay is partner and supporter of the Bhutan Network Europe and Bhutan Network USA, two independently registered but connected non-profit associations. They aim to jointly develop new solutions in a fast-changing world by connecting people and putting a focus on exchange and co-operation (thuenlam). In Bhutan our priority lies with the ideas and needs identified and expressed by our Bhutanese partners. We want to connect people directly in order to facilitate face-to-face interaction (e.g. between Europe, USA and Bhutanese organic farmers, artists, professionals, etc.).
Areas of interest are:
- Sustainable organic-farming & sustainable forestry
- Education: Vocational training and promotion of vocational professions
- Tourism & Hospitality
- Arts & Crafts
- Sports & Health
- Applied research
Bhutan Network initiated the very successful Organic Farmers Exchange Program (OFEP) with farmers from Bumthang, Zhemgang, and recently with Paro and Trashigang. In Zhemgang, Bhutan Network cooperates with Khengrig Namsum Cooperative (KNC). Bhutan Network also supported a skills development project for staff at Koufuko International Private Ltd (KIPL) dairy processing plant. Furthermore Bhutan Network helped set up the Tang Farmers.
As a non-profit association Bhutan Network entirely depends on donations and membership contributions. if you would like to support Bhutan Network you can visit our websites or donate by clicking here:
