Warm welcome to the new Executive Director!


We are delighted to introduce Dasho Neten Zangmo as the new Executive Director of the Samdrup Jongkhar Initiative!

Dasho Neten recently completed her service as the Chairperson of the Anti-Corruption Commission for the Royal Government of Bhutan, and has chosen to return to her hometown in Dewathang to head the organisation. The SJI team welcomes the experience, expertise, and commitment she brings with her to this new position.

We also take the opportunity to thank the outgoing Executive Director, Mr. Tshewang Dendup, for his hard work and dedication over the last few years. We are grateful that Tshewang will continue to support the team in project design, knowledge products and youth engagement in the area of sustainable food, energy and finance. 

Thank you, Tshewang, and welcome Dasho Neten!
