Since 2010, Design for Change has enabled children and youth across Bhutan to FEEL what bothers them, IMAGINE creative solutions, DO actions to implement their ideas, and SHARE their achievements through their STORIES OF CHANGE, creating positive change in their communities and happiness for all. Now, children are saying "I CAN!" instead of asking "CAN I?"
DFC is also perfectly aligned with Bhutan's concept of Gross National Happiness (GNH), a holistic approach to sustainable development and human well-being. DFC is achieving the Bhutan Ministry of Education's mandates of Educating for GNH, Life Skills education, Social Emotional Learning, and 21st century pedagogies.
The Early Learning Centre (ELC) joined Design for Change in 2010 as DFC Bhutan Country Partner after a visit from Founder Kiran Bir Sethi. Now in 2016, DFC has spread to 30 partner schools across 13 districts and continues to reach new schools across Bhutan today.
Over the past 6 years, Bhutan's Design for Change Schools have shared 77 inspiring "Stories of Change" and have empowered over 2,600 students across Bhutan!
