Choki Traditional Arts School is a private art school, especially for financially disadvantaged youth who have a keen interest in traditional Bhutanese art. At CTAS, we value every well-wisher and their valuable contribution towards building our school, helping these disadvantaged students, and contributing towards the preservation and promotion of our unique culture and tradition of Bhutan.
Here are three ways that you can support our school:
Sponsor a student for only $860 (USD) a year.
The school operational budget is met through sales of school products (30%) and the remaining budgetary deficit (70%) is met through donations from well wishers and supporters. We would be highly grateful for contributions towards the budgetary deficit.
Towards ensuring the sustainability of the school in the long run, a sustainability trust fund was established in 2015. Any contributions to this fund will be very beneficial and highly appreciated.
In order to receive tax deductions, please make a donation through one of these foundations:
CTAS would not be here without the generous support of well-wishers from within and abroad. Had it not been with the support of Mr. Koenraad and his daughter Leila Foulon, enrollment of girl students in 2009 and expansion of major infrastructure in the school would not have been possible. The currently ongoing new class room construction with support of matching grant from Mr. Alan Bickell and Mrs. Patricia Bickell would solve classroom congestion and provide a safe and conducive learning environment for the students.

We would like to remind our sponsors and donors that your support will not only help these disadvantaged students but it will also immensely contribute towards the preservation and promotion of our unique culture and tradition of Bhutan.
All the products are carefully crafted by our students and sold to sustain and further improve the school. By purchasing our products, you obtain authentic handcrafted Bhutanese souvenirs and gain a deep sense of spiritual fulfillment of being able to support our school.
