JRS and Bhutanese refugees

Fr. PS Amalraj, S.J., former Regional Director of Jesuit Refugee Service – South Asia, discusses the role of JRS in helping to repatriate and resettle tens of thousands of Bhutanese refugees in Nepal. JRS/USA 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.
