The Punya Foundation US is a nonprofit that has recently obtained its 501 (C) tax exemption status, has kicked off a crowdfunding campaign with an aim of raising US $10,000 to fund Bhutanese refugee secondary education. The Foundation felt a dire need to support around 200 ninth graders, who will be be transferred to various local schools and starting their secondary education beginning May 2017 as the ongoing third country resettlement program wraps up, and therefore the foundation decided to step in to fund their admission fees, tuition fee, stationeries, exam registrations and uniforms. Our initial plan is to support the ninth graders and with the generous support from people like you we aim to continue the support till these children complete their Higher Secondary levels.
The Foundation would like to appeal all generous individuals, organizations and the Bhutanese diaspora to be a part of this fundraising campaign.
Foundation would continue the scholarship programs to the earthquake victims in Nepal, and refugee children in Africa.
