Education & Life Skills

Education is the ultimate liberator. It empowers people to achieve that which they wish to pursue. Unfortunately, many are denied this opportunity for a variety of reasons – principal among them – funds to pursue learning and education. In a world where the opportunities for advancement is hinged on one’s capacity to demonstrate that one has the required level of education, one stands no chance against others who are better equipped with education and learning. This is where the Rotary Club of Thimphu wishes to step in – to try and help those who stand in need.

The Rotary Club of Thimphu is setting up an “EDUCATION AND LIFE SKILLS FUND”. This fund will be used to provide sponsorship to young people with exceptional academic excellence, to pursue degree studies. The Club will also apply the funds to provide financial assistance to unemployed youth, to acquire life skills through vocational trainings.

And we are looking your way to help us in our endeavors.

Our target is to ultimately raise a total of US$500,000.00. This money will be held in a term deposit with a financial institution. The principal amount will not be touched – only the interest accrued on the term deposit will be used to fund scholarships on an annual basis. The Fund will become operational as soon as the first US$100,000.00 is reaised.

The fund will be managed and administered by a Board comprising of Club officials of the Rotary Club of Thimphu. The selection process of the recipients of the sponsorship will be rigorous to ensure that only the most deserving receive sponsorship from this Fund.
