Simtokha School and Orphanage
Bhutan Simtokha School

In Bhutan there are children too poor to afford even a free education. Many of these children are orphans.

The Simtokha Orphanage in Thimpu, Bhutan takes care of these children. Even more, it provides a unique blend of traditional spiritual education with a modern secular curriculum. This helps preserve Bhutan’s unique heritage while at the same time preparing its children for the modern world.

Global forces of modernization and consumerism have overrun every culture they have encountered. The Simtokha School and Orphanage in Thimpu Bhutan provides an important counterforce. It also changes the lives of children.

These children are precious. There are hundreds at the Simtokha School and Orphanage, and thousands more who could be accommodated for only $10 a month.

Amicus is sponsoring as many children as donations will allow. It takes only a small amount of money to do a large amount of good.
