Since its foundation in 1999, Bhutan-Hilfe e.V. has been involved in the field of health and education. The association is dedicated to the education and training of people in Bhutan and thus promotes the transfer of technology, knowledge and know-how.
Building on more than twenty years of experience in development cooperation, Bhutan-Hilfe e.V. has succeeded in further developing its activities and opening up new thematic fields. In the past seven years, projects in the fields of sustainable tourism, organic agriculture and adjacent fields have been added.
Health & Education
Qualification of Bhutanese nursing staff
The declared goal of the Government of Bhutan is to improve the training of the workforce in the medical sector, doctors as well as nurses, in order to increase the labor market opportunities of every individual in Bhutan.
As part of the current project, up to 40 Bhutanese registered nurses will receive a work visa for five years of further training in Germany. During this period, they are fully integrated into the daily routine of the clinic, are paid accordingly and receive further training. After completing their training, the Bhutanese nurses return to their home country.
Site development and training partnership
The declared goal of the government of Bhutan is the resource-conserving expansion of tourism and the generation of a sustainable income model for the population, while at the same time preserving and conserving biodiversity and the richness of nature.
Within the framework of the current project, on the one hand, sites are selected and developed according to the conditions, which have an international exemplary character. On the other hand, the exchange of knowledge and ideas, as well as craftsmanship, takes place in order to establish the sites on a conceptual, constructive and touristic level.
Quality Offensive Soil
The declared goal of the Government of Bhutan is to increase the productivity of limited land resources and the standard of living of the population living from agriculture and livestock while improving soil fertility and soil biological activity.
As part of the "Quality Offensive - Soil", current cooperation projects with state and private institutions are raising awareness of the importance of soil. The focus is on technology, knowledge and know-how transfer.
