Disabled Persons’ Association of Bhutan
We are one of the first registered Disabled Persons’ Organizations (DPOs) in Bhutan initiated by persons with disabilities dedicated to the service of all persons with disabilities in the country. The primary mandate of the
Association is to supplement the efforts of the Royal Government of Bhutan in promoting the rights and well being of persons with disabilities in the country. Its registration was officially approved on 26th November 2010 under the patronage of His Royal Highness Prince Namgyal Wangchuck, who established the first national school for the blind in 1973. Today, the Association has been initiating a lot of activities designed to cater to the needs of all persons with disabilities within the limited financial resources available. From this website, you will be able to understand what we primarily do to cater to various needs of persons with disabilities in Bhutan and how we do it. So, please come back to check the updates from time to time.
