A group of resettled Bhutanese youths, mostly high school students, from Cleveland, Ohio started publishing a monthly bulletin “Connecting Cleveland” from this month.
The bulletin is aimed at disseminating community related programs, and educational material.
The bulletin team organized an introductory program and distributed 100 copies of “Connecting Cleveland” in the community on Jan 11, according to Hari Kumar Dahal.
According to Dahal, the team started printing the bulletin with contributions from their parents.
Mitra Pradhan, Program Coordinator at Asian Service In Action Inc., said that there were no any such initiatives in past five years. He also hoped that the paper would bring some noticeable changes in the Bhutanese community.
While community worker Moti Gurung regarded the youths’ initiative as a role model for younger generations in the community.
The “Connecting Cleveland” team comprises Hari Kumar Dahal, Ganga Ram Dahal, Mahendra Adhikari, Teeka Acharya, Reeta Acharya and Ganesh Bhujel.
