BTT Bridge: We facilitate these journeys by working with SAS, READ Bhutan and READ Centers. Engaging the local community, especially the women and children, in planning and execution of activities. Along with providing service to the local communities, we also focus to make sure that the SAS students and teachers learn and experience Bhutan. We make sure that imparting and learning values are core pillars of growing into a global citizen and that the greatest gift in life is the art of giving and learning.
