The Bhutan Youth Development Fund is working to ensure that all youth have equal access to education, meaningful employment and opportunities to develop their potential.
Since 1999, the YDF has served thousands of children and youth across Bhutan - with a special focus on the disadvantaged. We are Bhutan's leading youth organization and a senior member of civil society. Our programs and investments support youth development and participation, education, substance use prevention and treatment, disability rights, child protection, skills training, social entrepreneurship, well-being promotion, and policy advocacy.
From the President
Her Majesty the Queen Mother Ashi Tseyring Pem Wangchuck
“The youth comprise more than half of our total population. Therefore, the way we handle the development of children and youth will have a crucial bearing on every development goal that this nation has set collectively."
