[Gross  National  Happiness]  is  the  bridge  between  the  fundamental  values  of  Kindness,  Equality  and  Humanity   and  the  necessary  pursuit  of  economic  growth.  GNH  acts  as  our  National  Conscience  guiding  us  towards  making   wise   decisions   for   a   better   future.   It   ensures   that   no   matter   what   our   nation   may   seek   to   achieve,   the   human   dimension,  the  individual’s  place  in  the  nation,  is  never  forgotten.  It  is  a  constant  reminder  that  we  must  strive  for   a  caring  leadership  so  that  as  the  world  and  country  changes,  as  our  nation’s  goals  change,  our  foremost  priority   will  always  remain  the  happiness  and  well-­being  of  our  people  –  including  the  generations  to  come  after  us. +LV0DMHVW\WKH.LQJ-LJPH.KHVDU1DPJ\HO:DQJFKXFN

Elephants roam in the Royal Manas National Park, which covers about 1000 sq km and is considered the most important among the protected areas in Bhutan. Field staff collect fecal samples during a snow leopard survey in northern Bhutan. This page, top: Norbu Wangdi of UWICE and Kevin McManigal from the University of Montana make a visual assessment of Rapshtreng Tsho (lake) and inspect its outlet while taking GPS points of the glacier tongue. Bottom: The majestic Gangchen Singye peak overlooks the valley of Thanza above the Thorthormi, Rapshtreng, and the Bey Tsho (lake). As the Himalayan snowfields decrease in area and mass, our water sources are affected. We do not fully understand the extent to which this would affect biodiversity.

t  was  a  great  opportunity  and  a  wonderful  learning  experience  for  me  to  go   to  the  United  States  and  learn  about  special  education.  I  think  children  with   special  needs  should  be  given  a  lot  of  support  to  help  them  develop  and  enable   them  to  be  at  par  with  other  children.  Besides  reading  and  writing,  I  think   teaching  life  skills  to  children  with  special  needs  is  crucial.  The  courses  at  the   College  of  New  Rochelle  and  the  internship  at  the  Ridge  Street  Elementary  and   Blind  Brook  High  School,  where  there  is  a  Board  of  Co-­operational  Educational   Services  for  the  deaf  and  hard-­of-­hearing  program,  provided  me  with   experiences  that  would  be  very  useful  in  helping  children  with  special  educational   needs.

gained  invaluable  knowledge  working  as  an  intern  at  the  Ridge  Street   Elementary  and  Blind  Brook  High  School.  I  learned  many  new  things  from   teachers  at  both  schools.  It  was  a  struggle  but  worth  every  moment.    I  went  to   New  York  with  a  very  vague  idea  of  special  education  but  have  now  returned   with  so  much  that  Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m  very  eager  to  share  with  all  my  colleagues  here  in   Bhutan.

While  in  New  York,  I  thought  a  lot  about  all  my  students  with  special  needs  in   Bhutan  and  wished  that  they,  too,  were  able  to  receive  the  same  kind  of  help   and  attention  as  the  children  with  special  needs  in  the  United  States.  Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m  very   VDWLV¿HGZLWKZKDW,OHDUQHGIURPWKH&ROOHJHRI1HZ5RFKHOOHDQG,ZLVKWR do  my  best  in  the  interest  of  all  the  children  with  special  needs  in  Bhutan.  My   dream  was  not  to  travel  to  the  other  side  of  the  world,  but  to  learn  and  be  able   to  do  something  for  all  children  with  special  needs  in  Bhutan  and  to  support   the  teachers  who  work  with  them.  

Essentials  of  special  education,  from  setting  up  an  effective  learning  environment   to  differentiating  instructions  and  managing  children  according  to  their  interests,   strengths,  and  behavior,  were  what  I  learned  from  my  time  in  New  York.  I   believe  it  is  essential  for  special  education  teachers  to  be  knowledgeable  about   the  traits  of  disabilities  in  order  to  enable  them  to  adapt  instructional  methods  to   accommodate  the  special  educational  needs  of  children. I  am  looking  forward  to  returning  to  Bhutan  to  share  my  experiences,  knowledge,   and  skills  with  teachers  in  my  school  and  to  implement  what  I  have  learned  in  the   classroom.

was  really  excited  when  I  found  out  that  the  Bhutan  Center  for  Media  and   Democracy  (BCMD)  was  providing  scholarships  in  journalism  for  11  months   in  Noida  at  the  International  Media  Institute  of  India  (IMII).  Since  I  graduated   with  a  bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  degree  in  visual  communications,  I  thought  this  was  the   perfect  opportunity  to  broaden  my  knowledge  and  experience  with  media,   so  I  instantly  took  advantage  of  this  opportunity.  I  am  really  glad  I  took  the   opportunity  and  got  the  scholarship.     Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  been  a  month  since  I  joined  IMII,  and  I  have  learned  lots  of  things,  such  as   YLGHRHGLWLQJQHZVZULWLQJDQGEORJJLQJ'LIIHUHQWRIÂżFLDOVKDYHYLVLWHGRXU institute,  and  we  have  had  many  interesting  question-­and-­answer  sessions.   During  our  upcoming  vacation,  we  have  been  asked  to  seek  internships  from   which  we  will  be  getting  lots  more  experience. ,KRSH,ZLOOEHDEOHWRXVHP\QHZNQRZOHGJHHIÂżFLHQWO\ZKHQ,ZRUNZLWKWKH BCMD;Íž  after  all,  I  am  really  grateful  that  the  BCMD  has  provided  us  with  this   opportunity.

n  Bhutan,  the  monuments  are  living  heritage  monuments,  where  people  still  live   inside  the  monuments.  The  World  Monuments  Fund  believes  that  the  best  way  to   preserve  heritage  is  through  public-­private  partnerships.  And  what  is  interesting   about  Bhutan  is  that  since  the  heritage  is  shared,  the  responsibility  to  preserve  it  is   divided  between  the  government,  nongovernment  organizations,  local  community,   and  individuals.  The  Bhutan  Foundation  could  play  a  critical  role  in  partnering   with  the  government,  involving  individuals,  and  being  the  voice  for  preserving   tangible  and  intangible  Bhutanese  culture.
