Bhutan: RENEW obtains Golden Order of Merit

The name says it all: RENEW supports the cause of strengthening women in Bhutan. Financial literacy and access to financial services play an important role, too. Thanks to RENEW’s commitment, women are reached in more and more regions of the country, and particularly in the rural areas.

For its commitment and endeavours to promote the women of Bhutan, Sparkassenstiftung’s partner organisation RENEW (Respect, Educate, Nurture, and Empower Women) has recently been awarded the national Golden Order of Merit. The award was handed over to RENEW in the small town of Trongsa on 17 December, the National Day of the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, by its fifth King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck.

The Sparkassenstiftung für internationale Kooperation (Savings Banks Foundation for International Cooperation) cordially congratulates its long-term project partner RENEW on the occasion of this special award.
