Pema Drukpa, who was the chief guest, gave remarks. He said: "UPF-Bhutan is doing really good [work] and goes beyond religious traditions, races and national borders. I hope this Peace Road program can bring peace in Bhutan and the world.” He added that “Conflict and fighting cannot achieve anything; but, through peace, we can do many things such as unite the races, nations and religions.” Also in attendance were two Ambassadors for Peace.

At the end of the program, UPF-Bhutan gave a small donation to the school.
