ibet Sky Village Foundation seeks to alleviate some of the hardships the villagers endure, while ensuring they maintain their self- sufficiency and agency.
We are currently in Phase One of a long-term project to support several incremental water, sanitation, and health improvements. More urgently, we are working to supply and fund the local community with emergency shelter and housing.
We seek funds to help launch our exchange program which is currently working to bring two Bhutanese nationals to import their culture and life style including its unique worldview of well being, connect Bhutanese citizens in direct contact with our citizens who come from many parts of the world to exchange knowledge and experience and facilitate mutual learning.
The IEC has been sending people to various parts of the world to help global causes. In tribal villages, around the world, we are involved in strengthening existing village skills and knowledge base, so that people can become self-sufficient through their own efforts. Farmers, women and youth are involved and the focus is on areas such as organic farming, kitchen gardens, seed funds, medicinal plants, craft training, product improvement, and barter of essential goods and services, and for cultural strengthening and functional literacy. We believe that we need to look to our huge pool of skilled artisans to provide the answers to move towards a sustainable development path that is based on local knowledge systems, cultural diversity and inner contemplation.
he IEC Ashram is a place where people come to learn the practices of mindfulness. Mindfulness is a powerful way to reduce stress and anxiety and be present in the moment. There are special retreats that happen at this facility, and often a place for members of the community to get together.
Mindfulness is the energy of being aware of what is happening inside and around us in the present moment. It is increasingly being recognized as essential support for students, teachers, school administrators and parents.
