Message From President

Category : Uncategorized

“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.”- Albert Einstein

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Hope Happy New Year 2016 brings a year of changes and opportunities for all Bhutanese community people living in Dallas and Fort Worth metropolis. We are very proud to announce that the Organization of Bhutanese Society (DFW) has completed one and half years formally serving the community and now have at least prepared five employees with certain training levels as funded by federal government. We would like to continue the ongoing services to our community people with education support services, to grow, and to lead Bhutanese society of Dallas and Fort Worth in many new and creative ways in future.

We are confident that attending English for Communication classes and Civic classes at the community centers will open more chapters of opportunities to make our community people’s career and destiny. We believe our program in the community will help encourage learning from each other. We would love to bring various events, social and cultural orientation, and many more through different facilitators in our centers for our community people in days to come. So we would rather urge all community people to be proactive and seize this small opportunity as it avails through OBS (DFW) and get benefited.

I on behalf of OBS (DFW) express my sincere thanks to all Bhutanese community volunteers, youths/students, Executive Members, Advisors, Board of Directors and Active Staff. Had you all been not there OBS (DFW) wouldn’t have become successful. Despite of many challenges you all made it through this invaluable services among the Bhutanese community people physically, intellectually and financially when ever needed.

At last and not the least OBS (DFW) is always thankful to all mentors, well-wishers, friends and families who have directly or indirectly contributed for the upbringing of the Bhutanese community in the new home country(DFW-USA). We expect you’re all continuous help and support in future too
