Menjong Foundation is a non-profit organization working for the purpose of helping and inspiring hopes with a new approach to meet the needs of poor people living in the remote areas of Bhutan. The foundation’s work is an act of generosity or a secular act of public service motivated by compassion with no motive for profit.

Bhutan is on the belief that the primary purpose of development is to achieve Gross National Happiness and thus, Menjong Foundation takes this collective responsibility to ensure that our nation remains true to this philosophy with our ambitious objectives which supplements and complements the four pillars of Gross National Happiness.

Despite the establishment of pro-poor development strategy of the government and other foundations, small rural areas and communities still lack medical services, schooling necessities and socio-economic development aspects. Hence, the Menjong Foundation is established in 2011 to make difference in the lives of individuals and communities, to contribute to equitable and sustainable development, good governance, and also to help preservation of culture, tradition, nature and the environment in Bhutan.

From the folded hands of the Medicine Buddha, rays of wisdom light shines in all direction to the people who are in need. The healing plant that grows between the half open folded hands like the lotus blossoming represents the compassion of the Medicine Buddha that is spread to the entire region of Bhutan; which is also filled with Medicine Plants.

The colors of the hands of the Medicine Buddha are yellow and orange symbolizing the wisdom and compassion of the healing Buddha and meant for the Bhutanese people, through which their spiritual and material thirst will be quenched under the grace and blessings of the Sangay Menlha, the Enlightened Buddha.
