Bhutan and Japan have established friendly relationship between them that many aids from Bhutan were delivered to Japan when the Great East Japan Earthquake occurred.
Children in Bhutan are highly motivated toward learning and improving, but there is a limit on access to education in Bhutan. Since many children have to help family business or take care their siblings, they don't have a chance to go to a school from certain age like in Japan.
Health care and educational environment are especially poor in mountainous or rural areas.
