Opening of New Office and Storage:
ABPI is pleased to inform our Bhutanese community that the association has set up a new office at 9 Chesterfield Rd, Mirrabooka WA 6061, and spacious storage at Kangaroo Storage, 76 Roberts Street, Osborne Park, WA, 6017.
Coinciding with the auspicious day of the 65th Birth Anniversary of our living Buddha, His Holiness The 70th Je-Khenpo Trulku Jigme Choeda, Khenpo Tshering Wangchuk from Zhung Dratsang presided over the inauguration of the new office on 22nd August 2020. The inauguration started off with Lhabsang Thruesel and Zhudrey Phuntsho Tshog (Purification ceremony and offerings to the local deities). The ABPI executives and the guest attendees also offered the butter lamps and the long life prayers to His Holiness followed by cake offering.
Mr. Amit Taya, Director of ISA Migrations and Education Consultant and Mr. Dhyan Singh, the Vice President of Corporate Services & Operations provided the free office space to ABPI. Besides the office space, ABPI is also authorized to use the fully furnished facilities in and around the premises.
The ABPI and Stanley college enjoys a strong mutual relationship and it’s notable to mention that Stanley college has been very generous to Bhutanese international students. They have provided a number of scholarships to our fellow Bhutanese and currently, Khenpo Tshering Wangchuck is the recipient of the scholarship. The college is now viewed as an opportunity by many Bhutanese in Perth to enhance their living.
The ABPI has rented the store at $250.00 per month to store the ABPI properties. This decision was taken by the executives to cut down costs and bring ABPI properties closer to our community for easy access. Our people frequently use religious tools, furniture, and kitchen utensils for performing rituals, celebrate birthdays, and for many other reasons. Please come forward to avail of the services available for the community by paying minimal fees to the association. The hiring charges for religious items are voluntary but we collect a security deposit of $100 for small size items, $150 for medium size items, and $200 for the whole lot and the security deposit is refundable.

December: Sonam Tenzin/ Youth Rep/ 0424 874 142
Please contact the above executives allocated for hiring any equipment.
With this, we would like to urge all our community members to share the bond of unity, be focused, help each other, and always be Bhutanese at heart. Please remember that the executive members are always there to provide our voluntary services to the Bhutanese community with the fact that serving our Bhutanese anywhere is as good as serving our King, Country, and the People (Tsa-Wa-Sum). So please feel free to contact us anytime.
Lastly but not the least, the ABPI, on behalf of the Bhutanese community living in Perth would like to express our immense gratitude to Stanley college for the continued support shown to us and helping each and every Bhutanese approaching on various matters.
Thank you all for your continued support and cooperation.
