Tarayana Foundation
 
Established by Her Majesty the Queen Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuck with the vision to expand the scope of the charity work that Her Majesty has personally initiated throughout Bhutan, the Tarayana Foundation - a registered charity and non-profit organization is based in Thimphu, Bhutan. The Crown Prince Dasho Jigme Khesar Namgyal Wangchuck formally launched the Tarayana Foundation on 4th May 2003 coinciding with the 3rd day of the 3rd month of the Water Female Sheep Year.

The aims and objectives of the foundation are to help vulnerable individuals achieve greater economic security by providing maintenance allowances for people living in difficult circumstances to tide them over a crisis, and providing basic maintenance grants for students who lack support and care and are in disadvantaged circumstances. The Foundation provides modest expenses towards uniforms, books and stationery to poor students, sponsors modest individual expenses for treatment and incidental costs for medical care, promotes artisan skills and generate income in poor communities through sales of crafts at the folk craft houses. The Foundation aims to establish three folk craft houses in three regions of the country containing curatorial acquisitions to provide education and knowledge to visitors and impart skills to prospective crafts persons within those communities.
