RC Thimphu Donates Power Tiller Worth Nu.230,000.00

The Rotary Club of Thimphu has yesterday donated a 10HP MUBOTA M80 Power Tiller Model RV85L to Khengrig Namsum Cooperative (KNC) in Zhemgang. The RC Thimphu is encouraged to partner with the KNC because we believe that their cause is a worthy cause – one that generates employment for the unemployed educated youth while, at the same time boosting rural farm production and marketing.

The donation was made possible through the generous contributions by three of its Club Members.

The KNC is a cooperative society formed by 16 unemployed educated youth. They focus on boosting farm production in rural Zhemgang.

The Rotary Club of Thimphu is committed to assist this pioneering group of 16 educated youth who have chosen to make farming and farm production their livelihood. To encourage such exemplary initiatives by the educated youth of Bhutan, the RC Thimphu is in discussion with two Clubs – one each in Japan and the US – to partner with us to provide solar fencing and supply of farm machinery to the KNC.
