Trongsa Penlop Inspire Program

Tongsa Penlop Inspire Program

It is inspired people that achieve amazing results and reach new heights. Inspiration is contagious, and once enough people in our communities are infected, they continue to inspire each other to achieve even better results.

Tongsa Penlop Inspire Program is a repurposed Drukair educational outreach initiative of the erstwhile ‘Tongsa Penlop Rolling Trophy’ annual golf tournament. It aims to provide enriching experiences for the less privileged students and teachers identified from remote schools across Bhutan and to inspire them through sponsored excursion to a select Drukair destination during their school holidays.

Dear Business Partner

We are delighted to announce an exciting new initiative which gives us an opportunity to give back to the community.

As an airline, and as the national flag carrier, it is more than befitting for us to give back to the community through what we do best. Travel.

To travel is to discover. Changing perspectives, opening new horizons and opportunities, shifting paradigms, it all begins to happen the moment you step out into the world that awaits.

Unfortunately, not all can afford to travel and to see the world as you and I have.

Through the Tongsa Penlop Inspire Program, we can now come together to provide an opportunity to travel abroad to the less privileged students and teachers from remote schools across Bhutan. And together, we can make a world of difference - now and into the future.

As a measure of support for the Program, Drukair will match your donations on a dollar-for-dollar basis.

We encourage our business partners to participate by getting in touch with the Program Secretary.

Yours sincerely,



Tandi Wangchuk

Chief Executive Officer

An opportunity to travel abroad and to get to see the world differently will inspire less privileged students for life. This simple yet powerful belief is what drives the Tongsa Penlop Inspire Program.

- Hon’ble Yab Dhondup Gyaltshen, Founder
