The Jhamtse Gatsal Children's Community

Jhamtse Gatsal (Tibetan words that mean "garden of love and compaasion") is a children's community that has been nurturing seeds of compassion since 2006. Founded on the basic human principles of love and compassion, Jhamtse Gatsal provides a loving home, family, a progressive education (both heart and mind) and health care to some of the most at-risk children in the area. Today these children are blossoming. The impact is profound. This is a generational uplifting for the children, their families, their villages and the Region. The ripple effects of Jhamtse (love and compassion) are being felt around the world.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The goals and objectives of Jhamtse International are to provide education on love and compassion in action, and to support the Jhamtse Gatsal (Garden of Love and Compassion in Tibetan) Children's Community in beautiful, remote, impoverished Lumla Region of Arunachal Pradesh, India. The children in the Community are selected from those most at risk, they are orphans, abandoned, escape from abuse or from alcoholic parents, or from relatives unable to support them.

The strategies are to provide teachings and raise funds in the US, Europe and Canada to support the growing Children's Communnity in India. We are trying to broaden our fundraising outreach. There are no employees of Jhamtse International, it is an all-volunteer operation

Our capabilities are in teaching and learning the Tibetan Buddhist ancient wisdom, in cultural preservation, and in providing the best of care and education, experiential and academic, for our children at Jhamtse Gatsal.

Our children thrive and prosper, and we are improving our teaching skills and methods for classes from pre K through grade 9. We have received commendation for our work in education and cultural preservation from the office of His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, from the abbot of Sera Jey monastery in South India, and from many religious and government leaders in the region as providing the best school and environment for these children and staff
