VTOB FOUNDATION

VTOB Foundation is a Thimphu based humble community based organisation that will look forward to giving their best in fulfilling the vision of enhancing educational engagements in the society through creative, innovative and voluntary initiatives.

VTOB started as a teacher voluntary group on March 7, 2020. With the support from Ministry of Education, the team was fortunate to contribute voluntary services to develop BBS lessons, Radio lessons and Self Instructional Materials (SIM) for 1,70,000 plus students along with numerous educational initiatives during the pandemic, which is cherished as a fulfilling endeavour to provide continued education during school closures....

The team is composed of eminent advisors, a versatile Board of Directors and a dynamic young team of volunteers who believe that they can do their best bit by serving beyond the self and practicing lifelong learning whilst leveraging on creativity and innovation as a mantra for the team and the organisation.

VTOB Foundation will work towards supporting and fulfilling Bhutan’s current education reform process, nurturing an educated society of Gross National Happiness and also the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 Quality Education.

The foundation is open to collaboration as implementing partners and excited for any other forms of partnership. Please write to vtobofficial@gmail.com or call 77438800.

VTOB is happy to engage and empower volunteers who believe in social service. Do register on www.vtob.org or visit us in Thimphu.
