Here at BCF we talk a lot about Gross National Happiness. For our teachers heading to the field in a matter of weeks GNH is about to become a big part of their teaching lives as they learn to integrate GNH values and beliefs into their classrooms. But what is GNH really? Most simply, it is “development with values.” We’ll let this little video explain the rest!
The Bhutan Canada Foundation has been selected to receive a very generous Google Grants award, which will provide up to $10,000 of in-kind promotional funding each month. This funding will give a boost to already strong teacher recruitment efforts.
The Google Grants programme supports organisations sharing Google’s philosophy of community service to help the world in areas such as science and technology, education, global public health, the environment, youth advocacy and the arts.
Designed for registered non-profit organisations, Google Grants is a unique in-kind advertising programme that harnesses the power of Google AdWords, Google’s flagship advertising product. Google Grants has awarded free AdWords advertising to many non-profit groups whose missions range from animal welfare to literacy, from supporting homeless children to promoting HIV education.
