Bhutan, on the Eastern edge of the Himalaya Mountains, is known for its monasteries, fortresses (known as dzongs) and dramatic landscapes.
The photograph shows the iconic Paro Taktsang (Tiger’s Nest) monastery which clings to a cliff above the forested Paro Valley.
The Buddhist Kingdom measures its development progress by surveys of Gross National Happiness rather than Gross Domestic Product.
Bhutan 2020 Project
Disaster Aid Australia in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Thimphu have identified that providing safe drinking water to all the 120 central schools in Bhutan will bring major improvement to child health for the whole country.
The target is to provide a SkyHydrant Water Filter to each school by the end of 2020.
Currently 31 Skyhydrants have been delivered with the completion of those installations scheduled for the end of April 2019.
You Can Help By Visiting Bhutan
To raise funds for the project Disaster Aid Australia are promoting fully inclusive holidays in Bhutan from $6,450 per person (twin share).
Included in the cost is a $5,000 donation per couple which will provide a school with Safe Water.
During your trip you will be able to personally present ‘your’ SkyHydrant to a school.
On your return you will receive a tax receipt for your $5,000 donation with the potential to receive a tax refund of up to $2,250.
