The Tarayana Foundation is a non-profit organization working to uplift and enhance lives of vulnerable individuals and communities in Bhutan, a small and remote kingdom nestled in the eastern edge of the Himalayas. Bhutan has recognized the importance of national happiness over national income since the early 1970s by famously adopting the goal of Gross National Happiness over Gross National Product. It is the only global index that takes into account not just material wealth, but also spiritual well-being when evaluating a country’s prosperity.
Although basic education is free in Bhutan, many children from rural communities are faced with multiple financial and practical barriers, preventing them from consistently attending school. From subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys, Bhutan’s rough and dramatic terrain makes it challenging for children from rural areas to travel to school. In the first five years of its operation, the Tarayana Foundation assisted more than 1,200 rural students in enrolling and attending school by providing uniforms, shoes, school bags and financial assistance where needed.
The Love Peace Harmony Foundation has a prototype outreach program for developing countries and remote locations, this program is being initiated in Bhutan with the support of the Tarayana Foundation. This program works with children and families in isolated villages to support their access to education, healthcare and proper nutrition. The Foundation will be teaching the local villagers in Bhutan how they can use Master Sha’s Four Power Techniques and chanting to help people maintain health and happiness. Also we will be bringing essential micronutrients from our nonprofit partner, Vitamin Angels to help malnourished children, pregnant women and lactating mothers sustain health and vitality.
The Love Peace Harmony Foundation will match all donations up to $50,000 for scholarships.
The Love Peace Harmony Foundation is devoted to supporting children from all walks of life and circumstances. One of our top priorities is to support the nurturing and education of our youth—to provide opportunities that positively guide and assist children in reaching their highest potential.
“Nathan loved his time at flag football camp. He met new people and loved playing actively for the week. The fact that his spot was subsidized was incredibly helpful for our family. I’m a single mom of two boys. We appreciate it more than you know!“
Family income influences all areas of child development, and plays a strong role in the health and well-being of children across all domains. Family income affects children’s access to many basic needs and can also limit a child’s access to opportunities that support their growth and development, such as early learning and care programs, or recreation and the arts. Both the parents and the children of low income families experience physical, mental and emotional stressors.
This summer, the Love Peace Harmony Foundation supported low-income families who faced financial barriers to send their kids to camp. Twelve campers from diverse backgrounds, ranging in age from six to eleven, learned skills as varied as the camps they participated in: how to rig a sailboat, proper story structure, juggling, how to paddle, football passing techniques, problem-solving, how to interact with peers, environmental awareness, water safety, and so much more.
Giving children access to educational and recreational camps has long-term benefits resulting in character development, inner resiliency, self-esteem, emotional well-being, and much more beyond the camp experience. Camps provide an invaluable experience for children to gain from rich and rewarding experiences, make new connections, and discover new possibilities for themselves and the world around them.
“We are a low income family. We do our best with the limited financial resources we have. Given our limited finances, it is sometimes difficult to offer our children opportunities for growth and to learn new skills. The last thing we want is for our children’s potential to be undermined by our financial limitations. On behalf of our curious and vibrant children, we send our heartfelt appreciation to the Love Peace Harmony Foundation who, in cooperation with Harbourfront Camps, made possible this invaluable experience of participating in the excellent camps provided by the Toronto Harbourfront Centre.“
