Welcome to BCNH
The Bhutanese Community of New Hampshire (BCNH) is a community-based not for profit organization founded in 2009 to help New Americans living in the state of New Hampshire to achieve a better quality of life. The BCNH strives to achieve this goal through need-based community development projects in the state of New Hampshire. Its role is to support and empower needy individuals and families and provide direction for successful integration into the mainstream community.
The BCNH is highly indebted to all the intellectuals who contributed their ideas, thoughts, writings, time and energy to bring this website at this shape. Similarly, the BCNH can not stay away without thanking all the individuals who selflessly volunteered in the beginning to form the BCNH. In the mean time, the BCNH is extremely pleased to all the volunteers who have been volunteering in different areas for the general welfare of our community.
Through this integration process, New Americans become contributing members of the society and contribute towards the economic development of the community and the nation at large. The BCNH believes in collaboration and partnership, sharing and leveraging resources and creating innovative projects to improve the quality of lives of those residents struggling with barriers each day. When New Americans become an asset to the community and actively participate in economic, social and political activities, the BCNH celebrates success.
The BCNH’s programs are carried out by over 10 dedicated and trained community-based staff members, who work hand-in-hand with a range of volunteers and stakeholders under the guidance of the Board of Directors.
The BCNH is a tax exempt 501© (3) nonprofit organization and a member of the New Hampshire Center for Nonprofits, and adheres to the desirable norms for good governance of an ethnic community based organization. Since its inception, the BCNH board and executive team have contributed hundreds of volunteer hours to strengthen the organization by having it registered in the Department of Justice, Charitable Unit, and incorporated it in the Office of the Secretary. With funding from private, community and government sources, the BCNH serves over 2000 New Americans in the areas of health and human services, education for elders and children, workforce development and social and cultural preservation and development.
Moving forward, the BCNH plans to work on projects on micro enterprises/ small business development, asset building and ownership and investing in developing quality human capital to lead the community in near future.
