The Global Bhutanese Organization (GBO) is holding its first annual convention in Harrisburg, PA on November 27, 2021. The convention is being held in collaboration with the Bhutanese Community in Harrisburg. Speaking to BNS virtually, the president and the executive head of the organization, DB Rai said the convention is aimed to raise awareness of the plight of children living in the two refugee camps in Nepal, as well as to raise funds to fund their primary education. According to Rai, GBO has active members in nine countries around the globe. With donations from resettled Bhutanese around the world, GBO has managed to run primary schools in the refugee camps. The organization’s GoFundMe page has already collected more than $27,000 with the sole purpose of supporting education for the Bhutanese refugee children living in the two camps in Nepal.
