  1. Overview

The De-suung Skilling Program (DSP) is a very important Royal Project initiated by His Majesty The King of Bhutan in 2021. As envisioned by His Majesty, DSP imparts a series of short-term high quality trainings to unemployed Bhutanese youths who have mostly completed high schools and are in their early or mid-20s. These youths have all undergone the De-suung training, which is a valued-based personal development program intended to encourage active citizenry in the process of nation-building.

 The DSP trainings are mostly provided by international experts and trainers. In a few cases, public agencies and private institutes in Bhutan as well as local experts also impart the trainings either on their own or as assistants to international experts. Hence, DSP invites interested professionals, trainers or training providers to write to us to explore possible engagement.
