Meeting with the Draktsho Vocational Training Centre for Special Children and Youth

Meeting with the Draktsho Vocational Training Centre for Special Children and Youth

The Social and Cultural Affairs Committee met with the founder and staff and students of the vocational center this morning.

As the only specialized vocational center for children and youth, Draktsho has been helping to train children with disabilities for the past 24 years.

The center helps children to discover their interest and talent in one of the Arts and Crafts to help them become more independent. Over the years, 80 graduates have been able to be gainfully employed.

With Draktsho East and the Thimphu center, close 200 children and persons with disabilities are engaged in training and production.

The founder, Aum Rigzin Padma Tsogyal said this the first time Parliamentarians have visited the Draktsho center.

The Members discussed the issues at length with the staff and also interacted with the students at the center.
