Effective Delivery of Kidu to the People

Her Royal Highness Ashi Kesang Choden Wangchuck

In the course of His Majesty King Khesar’s many tours around the country, His Majesty has granted kidu to the most vulnerable sections of society including, among many others, the disabled, aged, destitute and also students needing financial aid to attend school. In order to ensure the effective delivery of such kidu to the beneficiaries, His Majesty has instructed Their Royal Highnesses the Princesses to constantly travel and work in various dzongkhags. While Ashi Sonam Dechan Wangchuck is based in Thimphu, Ashi Dechen Yangzom Wangchuck lives in Mongar and Ashi Kesang Choden Wangchuck in Bumthang.

Their Royal Highnesses live with the people in order to evaluate and monitor welfare kidu programmes for destitute individuals and students, both from the perspective of improving the well being of the recipient as well as the system as a whole. Their Highnesses undertake regular visits to remote villages in all gewogs in the dzongkhags in order to interact with the youth and rural communities on behalf of His Majesty.

Most recently, HRH Ashi Sonam Dechan conveyed His Majesty’s kidu of community land to the people of Beldrok, while HRH Ashi Dechen Yangzom travelled to Merak Sakteng and other areas in Trashigang and is presently in Lhuentse. HRH Ashi Kesang Choden has returned from Sarpang, where she oversaw the allocation of land granted as kidu to households, who had lost their lands in the floods of 2004. She will now tour Trongsa.
