Bhutanese American Project

HAF is re-launching the program to increase its support of the Bhutanese American community. The Bhutanese American Project is a two pronged effort that seeks to earmark $8,000 for grants that directly benefit Bhutanese communities resettling throughout the U.S. and $2,000 for HAF's advocacy efforts on behalf of the Bhutanese community. Direct grants would support Bhutanese community-led efforts to procure space for religious gatherings and social services, transportation to Hindu temples and other cultural institutions, or youth mentorship programs and field trips. Advocacy efforts are aimed at generating awareness of the plight of the Bhutanese American community on Capitol Hill.  Click here to learn more and donate.
