Dr Tashi Zangmo
Dr Tashi Zangmo is the executive director of Bhutan Nuns Foundation. Dr Zangmo’s childhood experiences inspired her to champion the cause of underprivileged women and girls through educating Buddhist nuns in Bhutan. She started the Bhutan Nuns Foundation under the patronage of Her Majesty the Royal Queen Mother Ashi Tshering Yangdoen Wangchuck. The foundation’s mission is to provide adequate learning opportunities and improve the basic living conditions of every nunnery in Bhutan, so that the nuns of Bhutan can in turn benefit the women and young girls in Bhutanese society by acting as role models.
