Volunteer or internship at Bhutan
Posted December 3rd, 2012 - 4:10 pm by from Bogota, Colombia (Permalink)
Hello I would like to know if there is any possibility to do an Internship or Volunteer in Bhutan.

I'm 26 years old, fluent in Spanish and English and have a bachelor degree in Political Science, I have experience working with foundations, I have done many volunteer jobs.

Many many thanks on any information.

Matt-

Not much information is known in public about voluneering in Bhutan - I had tagged a few posts from others who had given information on this topic, but a bug in CS is preventing it from appearing at the top. Search some of the old threads here about volunteering and you might get some pointers.

The Bhutanese GNH Commission invites application for their PM Fellowship program every year. I reckon the timing for this year is already over, but check out the following link to get to know more about this - http://www.gnhc.gov.bt/bhutan-prime-minister-fellowship/.

Hope those help!
Vishnu.

Mat - it will also be worthwhile to check some of the newspaper links I have put in the group description page. Try contacting the editors of a few of these and see whether they have any extra information.

If you get any, please do post back to this group! Good luck.
