Khaling Blind School

The Khaling Blind School, Bhutan’s only school for the blind, has been responsible for the education of over 160 visually impaired students since its creation by Norwegian missionaries in 1973. The school currently teaches 28 students from across Bhutan in levels pre-primary to class six. When the students reach class seven they integrate with the local school in Khaling. The teachers here have developed a braille script for Dzongkha, Bhutan’s national language.
