BCAP has recently celebrated one of the biggest women festivals of the year. Women’s special day “TEEJ” was successfully observed at the Clairton Park on September 2nd, 2019. Teej is celebrated by Nepali women, as well as girls without eating anything or even drinking water. Married women fast for the long life of her husband and for a happy relationship in the family. Teej is a vibrant festival that has been more popular since the start of this festival, however, in these recent years, this festival has influenced many Nepali women residing all over the world. Women in red attire sing and dance, going to temple in the holy and fasting mood. Usually, women get called or collected by their parents or brothers, where she celebrates Teej with rest of the family members and siblings. BCAP expected the attendants this year of  300 and more. We were joined by a large number of Nepali speaking Bhutanese community members, mainstream community members, wellwishers, and BCAP staff.  Elderly seniors were recognized and appreciated at the event.

This fundraising opportunity has been solely initiated by our community youth to support their amazing “Travel Soccer Program.” Please consider contributing to this great cause. We’ve had multiple suicidal cases along with increasing school dropouts, drugs and alcohol cases over the years. A program like these help reduces such cases as they will have a support system all year long. Please consider investing in our community youth, they are our future leaders.
