Bhutan Network USA

The Bhutan Network USA was founded by Ellen Froot after a visit to Bhutan where she met our partners in the villages.

Bhutan Network USA shares our mission statement and approach.

We place specific emphasis on ideas and needs identified and expressed by our Bhutanese partners. The intention is to connect people directly so that face-to-face interaction (e.g. between European, N-American and Bhutanese organic farmers, artists, professionals, etc.) can take place. We are especially interested in less privileged but highly-skilled people who lack the means to establish such connections yet have wisdom to share. Small-scale and hands-on practical approaches are particularly welcome.
