On this sacred day which is Zhabdrung Kuchoe, His Majesty The King granted an Audience to NGOs and startups who are involved in waste management. His Majesty has often said that "Where we live must be clean, safe, organised, and beautiful, for national integrity, national pride, and for our bright future. This too is nation building." Proper waste management is an integral part in this endeavour.

Zhabdrung Kuchoe is observed on the 10th day of the 3rd month of the Bhutanese Calendar. On this day in 1651, our founding father Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel went into eternal retreat. #HisMajesty #KingJigmeKhesar #KingofBhutan #Zhabdrung #Kuchoe #audience #NGO #Bhutan
