Apathy is Boring!

We are an organization dedicated to training Youth in democratic thought, action and practice. We hope to build a strong community of active citizens all over Bhutan (and the world) who work to make democracy happen! For this we identify the core values of Political and News Literacy, Democratic action, debate and discussion Youth today, Adults tomorrow. Citizens always!
