"Climb higher on the shoulders of past achievements- your task is not to fill old shoes or follow a well-trodden
path, but to forge a new road leading towards a brighter future."
~His Majesty the Beloved King.
Started as a teachers’ voluntary group on March 7, 2020, VTOB had the opportunities of
working for BBS Lessons, Radio Lessons and development of Self-Instructional Materials
(SIM) with support from Prime Minister’s Office, Ministry of Education and other
stakeholders. VTOB has since then initiated a string of foundations and programs to
supplement, complement and enhance educational engagements. VTOB was also blessed
with a Royal audience on May 8, 2020 wherein His Majesty reiterated that the initiative
should continue and also receive support from His Majesty’s Secretariat for future initiatives.
Inspired by the Royal Address of 17 December 2020, the Royal Kasho on Education Reform
and a need for focus on education as the next big way forward, the Foundation is motivated to
support the nation by complementing, supporting and offering a host of educational
opportunities through creative, innovative and voluntary programs. The Foundation will work
towards fulfilling Bhutan’s education reform process, nurturing an educated society of Gross
National Happiness and supporting the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG)
4: Quality Education. Teachers and children (in school and out of school) will be the direct
beneficiaries of the Foundation. VTOB shall also focus on any need based interventions and
Vision: Enhancing Educational Engagements.
Mission: Complementing, Supporting and Offering educational opportunities through creative, innovative and voluntary initiatives.
Core Values: Tha Damtshi Lay Judrey, Integrity and Civic Responsibility
