As the 22nd project in the history of Global Perspectives, this year’s class will be going to Bhutan in March of 2015. The site of the project is located above Bhutan’s capital, Thimpu, at Phajoding Monastery, which is a 3-hour hike from the nearest road. The students will be building one classroom and library as well as a playing field in hopes to support the goal of education for the boys in this monastery. The country of Bhutan uses Gross National Happiness as the basis of their government, prioritizing the happiness of citizens over materialistic things. The mission of the Phajoding monastery is to “empower, care for and educate disadvantaged young boys from across Bhutan.” We hope that through this project students can make a contribution and gain a new perspective of the world around them.
