Women's Project- Supporting cultural institutions that
provide women a basic education, while passing on the spiritual
traditions of their culture.
Yes for Children
for Orphans-Imagine a child too
poor to afford even a free education. Imagine being
poor and having no parents. The Simtokha Orphanage in Thimpu
Bhutan takes care of these children. Even more, it provides
a unique blend
of traditional spiritual education with a modern secular curriculum.
Cultural Center- A highly focused endeavor
that will help to preserve Bhutan’s precious qualities
before they are lost to the world forever.
Arts Center of Bhutan-
The country of Bhutan is under
siege. On the battlefield is an ancient wisdom culture colliding
with "Do You Want
to Be a Millionaire". The “Performing Arts Center
of Bhutan” will be a living institution, playing a key
role in preserving Bhutan’s culture by offering a contemporary
outlet for performances of traditional music, dance, theater,
film, educational programs, and other special events.
of the Flame
School and Sanctuary -One
of the greatest living masters in Bhutan, Lopen Kado lives
in a forest
hermitage high up in the mountains. There he looks after
the education of many young children, and older more accomplished
spiritual practitioners, who live in the mountain’s
solitude practicing for the benefit of all beings. Together
we can preserve the heart of what makes Bhutan truly Bhutan
- including these sacred and authentic teachings passed down
by a few rare individuals.
Children at Risk
Children of the Forest is a refuge for many children from the Karen and Mon ethnic groups living by the Thai/Myanmar (Burma) border. Many families, although greatly relieved to have escaped from the brutal persecution of the Burmese soldiers, are still having to cope with grinding poverty as well as having been uprooted from their land and community.
Change a Child's Life - Many of the children living in Thailand are gravely affected by poverty and social problems such as human trafficking, violence, rape, domestic abuse, illiteracy, unemployment, alcoholism, drug abuse and exploitation. The “Change a Child’s Life” program offers educational opportunities and helps care for these at risk children.

Thailand's Children - Amicus is passionate about assisting schools and communities in poor rural villages. We brought a smile to over five hundred children in one of Thailand's poorest areas.
in Need -There
have been so many situations in
which our donating a relatively small amount of money
has literally saved an entire family from losing their
home and land- - land which often supports over a
dozen people, from little children to great grandparents.
Amicus project touches the lives of children, families
communities. Amicus staff take no salary, as the majority
of work is done by
