Did you know that Education and Healthcare Services are Free In Bhutan?



In Bhutan, citizens can enjoy free education and healthcare services are free for all despite being an impoverished country.

Schools in Bhutan started in monasteries that were set up by the Drukpa subsect of Kargyupa sect of Mahayana Buddhism. The First Development Plan (1961-1966) was introduced and this provided free education.
