Hanna Chuang Launches Program to Battle Illiteracy in Bhutan

Hannah Chuang, 2016 National Young Woman of Distinction with USA Girl Scouts Overseas, is a true “global citizen.” So when a friend told her about high rates of illiteracy among women and children in Bhutan, she sprang into action. See how Hanna started a service club at school and worked with rural villages to create community centers offering a wide range of services—from library and computer access to English lessons and daycare services.

Each year, Girl Scouts of the USA honors 10 Girl Scouts as National Young Women of Distinction, selected from the thousands of exceptional young women in grades 9–12 who earn their Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest achievement in Girl Scouting.
