Bhutan Christian Services Centre
Established in 1999 by Bhutanese exiles concerned about Bhutan's treatment of Christians, the Bhutan Christian Services Centre (BCSC) promotes religious freedom in Bhutan, the development of the Bhutanese Christian community, and the peaceful co-existence of all religious groups in Bhutan. The organization lobbies international Christian groups and NGOs to pressure the Bhutanese government on Christians' rights. Other initiatives focus on translating Christian publications into Dzongkha (the national language of Bhutan), providing educational opportunities and vocational training to Christian youth, and promoting interreligious tolerance and dialogue. The BCSC is based in Nepal.
