Building schools and community centers in rural villages.
Amicus is attempting to disrupt the continuing erosion of
village life by helping children receive the needed tools to
the modern world, while AT THE SAME TIME preserving the
traditional skills, handicrafts, folk lore, history, social
and spiritual values.
* Building libraries, for both public and scholarly use.
* Helping disenfranchised
women by building nunneries. These spiritual institutions
form the cultural and
of Bhutan’s heritage. Support for women is generally
lacking. Amicus is working to decrease the suffering of women
by increasing opportunities and providing them with support.
* Providing educational scholarships to
individuals who are strongly motivated to be of service to
others, but too poor
to afford an education
* Conserve, maintain, and rehabilitate
the historical and cultural monuments of Bhutan. These monuments
form an integral
part of the symbol of Bhutan’s cultural identity and
its continuity. They are the focal point of cultural activities
in the Bhutanese villages, and the center of learning for the
heart of Bhutanese culture.
