A snapshot of what Lhomon Education is trying to accomplish in Bhutan.
Lhomon Education (LME) is a grassroots initiative fostering the development of innovative curricula designed specifically for Bhutanese students. The basis of the LME initiative is an alternative model of teacher training and project-based curriculum development that integrates principles of Gross National Happiness (GNH) in the truest sense of the term. Based on the overarching mission of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche's Lhomon Society, and on the values and principles laid out in our Curriculum Framework, Lhomon Education is helping teachers create unique GNH-based curricula for use in a variety of education environments. LME curriculum development workshops and teacher training seminars are open to a wide range of education institutions, including government schools, monasteries, nunneries, women's organizations, rural education centers, and other formal and non-formal education institutions and initiatives in Bhutan.
