Support Bhutan’s Back-2-School Campaign

Education is the single best development investment a country can make.













The Bhutan Canada Foundation’s (BCF’s) Teach in Bhutan Program works in partnership with the Ministry of Education in Bhutan and the Bhutan Foundation to send highly qualified teachers from around the world to teach in public schools in need of teachers across Bhutan. Our teachers support the further improvement of the Bhutanese education system by modeling innovative teaching techniques, providing professional development to fellow Bhutanese teachers, and encouraging the development of spoken and written English.

English is the language of instruction in Bhutan, yet many children, particularly those who live in the more remote areas, have never heard English spoken and have great difficulty reading it. Acquiring proficiency in English is the only way in which Bhutanese youth can pass exams, graduate from high school, go on to secure employment, and actively participate in Bhutan’s developing modern society.

We hope you’ll join us in improving education for all children in Bhutan and expanding their opportunities.

Every dollar you donate toward the Teach in Bhutan program will be matched by a generous donor up to $10,000! Please help us improve the quality of education in Bhutan and support in the following ways:

$1,000  sends a teacher for a year to a remote school in Bhutan

$500     provides classroom supplies for a year in Bhutan

$250      pays a reading specialist to work with struggling Bhutanese readers for 3 months

$100      provides sports equipment for a school for a year

Meet one of our teachers: Catherine O’Brien

Catherine was born and raised in Michigan before attending Loyola University of Chicago for her undergraduate degree in English and education. She has a love of good literature, good food, and traveling! The unique Buddhist culture and landscape of Bhutan fueled her fire to pursue a teaching position in the Land of the Thunder Dragon, and she is currently teaching English at Dechentsemo Middle Secondary School in Punakha (Western Bhutan).

Living and teaching in Bhutan is a wonderful roller coaster that has challenged me to find strength, patience, and peace in the process of finding my ground and learning how to teach here. I have learned countless invaluable lessons and will be forever grateful for this experience.”
