What is the Bhutan Nuns Foundation?

Established under the patronage of Her Majesty Queen Mother Ashi Tshering Yangdon Wangchuck, the Foundation seeks to help make nunneries leading agents and self-reliant institutions for women. It is committed to women’s education and empowerment as a way of enhancing their capacity to support society in its search for Gross National Happiness.
What is the exhibition aiming to do?
