As the COVID-19 situation deteriorates around the world, many countries have already closed schools and institutions to help control the spread of the virus. Bhutan is no different. Currently, all schools and educational centers are closed indefinitely for the safety of the students and their families.

To help families and their loved ones come together during this time, the Bhutan Foundation is pleased to launch three free e-books in both Dzongkha and English! These primary readers were developed and distributed for free as reading materials for school children in the highland communities of the snow leopard range areas in Bhutan.

Developed in partnership with the Royal Education Council, The Bhutan Foundation aims to raise awareness on the importance of the snow leopard and its conservation in the region. The stories and illustrations were created by Bhutanese teachers and artists. You can download all three books for free by clicking the link here.
