Trashigang Y-VIA members to construct four-unit public toilet
With poor sanitation becoming a major health concern in Rangjung, especially during the time of Drubchen and other occasions, the Trashigang Dzongkhag Young Volunteer in Action(YVIA) and the members from Rangjung Technical Training Institute (TTI) are volunteering to construct four-unit public toilet.
The Y-VIA members are volunteering to construct the toilet given the limited number of the public toilets in the monastery and to solve the shortage of public toilets during the time of Drubchen.
Calling them as the Dzongkhag Y-VIA members, the group provides social services in the Dzongkhag and its coordinator Yeshey Dorji said they provide immediate help in the community and provide other social services in the community.
“The shortage of public toilet in Rangjung Woesel Choling monastery has been a major issue especially during the time of Drubchen and other occasions,” he said, adding that more than 20,000 people gather during the time of Drubchen and that the shortage of the toilet has remained as major issue.
He added that by the end of the project, Rangjung Woesel Choling monastery will have a four flush toilet in the compound which will benefit more than hundreds of public during the time of occasions.
Further, the coordinator said, “We are working on how to carry forward the group so that our volunteerism continues.”
Yeshey Dorji added that this is one way of serving the community and the people.
Meanwhile, the volunteer group has also completed the project on wiring and electrification of the Rangjung community lhakhang.
Meanwhile, one of the Y-VIA members said volunteerism is fun and has a deep bonding effect.
Similarly, the dzongkhag Y-VIA coordinator said, “The group has also volunteered in rewiring and electrification of Phimsong community lhakhang in Phongmey gewog.”
“Such initiatives have brought together people from different walks of life with a common goal and I hope such activities would further inspire other youth to promote volunteerism in the community,” he added.
Meanwhile, there are also plans to organize and to provide similar social services in the community in the future.
