Their labors will come to fruition as the

Project SAIL Apprentices Serve Culture’s Cuisine

Many of our Bhutanese students wanted to share their culture, so they cooked some of their cuisine for their fellow apprentices and BMC’s staff. They created amazing samosas, and were laughing and dancing along to the boombox playing everything from Bollywood to Miley Cyrus. While we try to teach our students about life, our students teach us what life is all about.
