South Asia: JRS accompanies Bhutanese refugees
Fr PS Amalraj SJ, former JRS South Asia Director, discusses the role of JRS in helping to repatriate and resettle tens of thousands of Bhutanese refugees in Nepal. JRS has been instrumental in making it possible for Bhutanese refugee teenagers to pursue higher secondary education in local schools in Nepal and nearby India; this education will allow them to adjust to a new life more easily when they leave the refugee camps and return home or settle in new countries.
