Bhutan [2] has been blessed with a sustained, rich cultural heritage and the Bhutanese people take pride in upholding a number of essential values [3] including harmony, compassion and patriotism. Blogger Dorji Wangchuk [4] has been working with the recovering addicts and alcoholics and looks for a long-term solution of the problem among the Bhutanese youth. He asserts that educating own children is not enough, there is a need to work extra hard towards fostering the children of fellow citizens to inspire them to become good human beings.
