spThe Loden Foundation was one of the first organizations to support children at school in Bhutan by providing costs for uniforms, stationeries, sports gear, etc. Although school education in Bhutan is state financed, such extra costs can be often too heavy a burden for rural families whose livelihoods are based on subsistence farming.

Since 2012, Loden Foundation supports deserving students for higher education . It has also been a pioneer in starting and operating Early Learning Centers for young children in far flung areas.
Our work is two-fold:

  • We find either a sponsor or a child as requested
  • We channel and administer the funds efficiently

ECCD (Early learning Centres)

The effort by the government in extending Early Learning Centres in far flung areas can definitely use our assistance. To provide rural children equal opportunities in childhood development and early learning, this program is cherished by many.

Scholarship for School Children

Child sponsorship was the first project of the Loden Foundation. Loden started as a programme to link potential sponsors with poor children in the Himalayas. Hundreds of village students in the Himalayan countries do not go to school or abandon it prematurely because their families cannot afford a school uniform or few books.
