“Pro Bhutan”, a private German philanthropic association, is recognized by and registered with the German tax authority (Finanzamt) of the town of Loerrach, Germany, under nr. 11007/14978, SG 02/02 as a non-profit association. Since 1993, we plan and execute, on a turn-key basis, the construction of buildings in the health, education and culture sectors; see more under » Our Projects. We finance our projects with the help of donations from generous private donors and other humanitarian partners. After handing over the buildings to the Royal Bhutanese Government, the competent Bhutanese institutions make use of them in an exemplary way for the benefit of the people in need of the respective services.

Experience our projects in the context of some beautiful aspects of Bhutan. It takes almost 50 minutes, but we trust you shall not regret the time spent.

Practical Training, Voluntary Work:

more and more students, in particular of medicine, approach „Pro Bhutan“ asking assistance to be accepted for a period of practical training in the Punakha Hospital or in other institutions in Bhutan.

The same holds for good minded persons etc. offering their voluntary work either in the Punakha hospital or in other, particularly in social fields.

It is with great regret that “Pro Bhutan” is not in a position to help. Any person interested should approach the Royal Government directly, may be first searching in the government portal : » www.bhutan.gov.bt or the web site of the Ministry of Health: » www.health.gov.bt.

In any case, it may be mentioned that the chances for permission for any short term training or voluntary work in Bhutan are very reduced.
