How to Take Action
Connect with your local Bhutanese Organization! Many of the Bhutanese have built local organizations to support their communities. There are many ways to get involved and become part of their success. From teaching English to material donations, you could make your land availible for Bhutanese gardening, donate a community space for gathering and cultural events... the sky is the limit. Coming soon will be a list of cities where the Bhutanese live and how to contact them.
Since 2008 the Bhutanese refugees have been arriving in communities all over the world and their story has yet to be told. One of the greatest ways to take action is by engaging your community to share their story.
Bring The Refugees of Shangri La to your community!
We have seen a number of extremely powerful screening events that have brought the Bhutanes community and the host community together. Deep human connections were created, friends were made and a bridge of communal understanding was forged.
There are endless ways to host a screeening. Make it an event - host a reception after the film, plan a discussion, sell tickets and donate to their cause. You can be as creative as you want to be.
