It all started when…
We believe the course of individual lives and of the world can be profoundly improved through the active practice of love and compassion. We strive to apply these principles to everything we do.
Jhamtse Gatsal (jhaam’-tsay gah’-tsal) is Tibetan for “garden of love and compassion.”
It is a community, a school, and a home for about 90 children ranging in age from toddler to adolescent. Jhamtse Gatsal lies in the district of Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh, India, and the children come from nearby villages. Each of these children has a background of adversity. Our driving goal is to provide these children with better lives, helping them to achieve their fullest potential.
Our mission is to help the neediest children of the remote villages of the Tawang district of Arunachal Pradesh, India and be a model community for the region.
