ABOUT VTOB FOUNDATION

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 initiatives.
