I've been a donor to JCEC for the past three years and I think the organization is a great steward of such funds. I've witnessed donations in action through significant improvement to facilities and amenities for the kids. I think the organization has strong leadership and vision!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

newsletters and reports from the organization on the progress of certain infastructure projects.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Continue to build the fund development efforts so the organization can assist more children.

JCEC is an important organization with dedicated staff and volunteers which help the truly disadvantaged children of Tibet. It means so much to my wife and I to sponsor Pema, a small at the school. We hope in a small way we can help a child half way across the world, who does not have the same opportunities that our son has.

JCEC provides direct help to orphaned and disabled children. When i donate to any worthy cause, I like to be confident that my contribution will do the greatest good. JCEC relies on generous volunteers who keep the overhead to a minimum so that the donations can do what they should- better the lives, health and well-being of vulnerable children.

Having spent two months working directly with the kids at Jatson in 2006 while I was in college, teaching them english, eating lunch with them, having them perform traditional songs and dances for childrens day and getting to know the dedicated people (Tenzin is AMAZING!) who keep the school and orphanage running strong, i can honestly say if any organization is worth supporting it's Jatson Chumig. In a place with little hope, they provide a guiding light for so many. To have been able to be a part of that, even for such a short time, was life changing and has since given me purpose in life.

2006 I volunteered, and since then i have always kept up with the website, the U.S. contact Brian Mcclatchy to have updates as to the many positive changes that have taken place as well, many improvements have been made in the 5 years since I have been there. To see the kids moving up in school when it was so difficult before is amazing.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make it possible/ easier to purchase items from the handicraft store at the orphanage itself, which could provide funds...and I'd improve the physical therapy facilities if it hasnt been done already, they could use more equipment.

Along with Tom Leech, Carol Brighton, Jim Canary, and Nimto Sherpa, I ran the Paper Road/Tibet project at Jatson Chumig from 1996 until 2003 when we transferred the remaining funds to Tibetan Handicraft Industry in Kathmandu for continued support of the traditional Tibetan papermaking program that our group helped Jampa and Tenzin start at the school. Although the closing of the non-profit that had allowed us to work in Tibet was difficult, we have been heartened to see that Jampa and Tenzin and the Jatson Chumig papermaking group have continued the program and have surpassed our wildest dreams in that they are making beautiful thangkas on handmade papers, painted by the expert thangka painters at the school. We each made several trips to the school. I have been duly impressed at the care, education, and vocational training provided for the children and the preservation of Tibetan culture that is incorporated in the vocational training programs.

Brian has established an incredible support organization for the Jatson Chumig School and its needs. It is fantastic to see the group he has built continue to grow and to see his creative fundraising that has resulted in major support for the school.

Continue to improve communication between the school and the foundation.

I visited Jatson Chumig in the Summer of 2007. I was lucky enough to be funded by my college, enabling me to volunteer my services by teaching English and anything else they may have needed. The orphanage is run by very responsible and hard working locals. The kids seemed very happy. It was clear they were treated well and they interacted like a big family. It was obvious that this was a great thing in the lives of these children. I also appreciated how the orphanage attempted to be self supporting by selling locally made Tibetan crafts. I have continued to follow the orphanage since I have returned and support it in any way possible. Great place.

I volunteered at Jatson Chumig in the summer of 2007. I met the director, Jampa, who is a very sweet ex-monk whom all the kids love. The assistant director, Jampa's daughter, Tenzin, speaks great English and runs all of the administrative details of the school and orphanage. Brian McClatchy, a former volunteer who has helped Jatson Chumig incorporate, is a passionate, kind man who has gone to great efforts to fund raise for all the kids. I had a great time volunteering there, teaching the kids English, translating descriptions for their workshop "museum", and helping disabled students with their physical therapy. The school has a great mission and I am happy to see that conditions are improving there. All the money that you donate to the school helps provide the necessary food, shelter, clothing, and school supplies for the children. It's an absolute pleasure watching the school grow and the children succeed.

The Great!

The kids benefit from having English-speakers around and physical therapists visiting. Donations have contributed to new uniforms, new school supplies, new classrooms, and soon, a new dormitory. Students who have graduated to middle school can now take van rides to school.

Jatson Chumig still needs more funds to build new facilities and renovate old ones. Most importantly, the school needs money to build dormitories for the students -- the current ones are too crowded.

I volunteered at Jatson Chumig school in 2005. Their dedication to Tibetan children was immediately apparent. The school provides additional services for children with disabilities and provides a rare and much-needed service in doing so. The staff at Jatson Chumig are educated, caring, hard-working, and are the school's best asset.

I first volunteered at Jatson Chumig School and Orphanage (Jatson Chumig) in Lhasa Tibet, P.R. China in 2006 providing physical therapy guidance to disabled students. Jatson Chumig is an NGO founded in 1993.

In 2007 I got to know Brian McClatchy and when he approached me about his goal
to found Jatson Chumig Education Corporation (JCEC) I was enthusiastic about what we could achieve.

JCEC was founded in 2009 with an all volunteer board. No salaries are received and an incredible 94% of donations (6% pays direct expenses such as PayPal & bank transfer fees) are transferred to Jatson Chumig in Lhasa. These donations provide food, clothing, education, and medical assistance to the students of Jatson Chumig. Jatson Chumig is currently currently home to about 158 students.

JCEC has also raised funds to renovate buildings and has just begun building a new girls dormitory.

My name is Brian McClatchy and I am the founder / president of the Jatson Chumig Educational Corporation. Founded in 2009, JCEC raises funds which go directly to the Jatson Chumig School and Orphanage located in Lhasa, Tibet - PRC.

We (JCEC) has a remarkable donation rate as 94% of all
donations actually are transferred to Lhasa to help support the school and orphanage.

Consisting of an all volunteer Board, there are no paid employees and no salaries are paid to anyone, thereby making the most of every donation and helping the children at Jatson Chumig in Lhasa, Tibet.

Donations are used to buy: FOOD, CLOTHING, PROVIDE MEDICAL CARE AND TO PAY FOR THE EDUCATION OF ALL THE CHILDREN. Currently, there are 150+ children living at Jatson Chumig in Lhasa.

JCEC is also raising funding to help rebuild Jatson Chumig. After completing a new Kindergarten Room and Physical Therapy Room in 2010, we are embarking on a larger project in 2011. We have now begun building a brand new dormitory for the girls along with a new toilet house to improve the sanitation conditions for all the children.

Jatson Chumig School and Orphanage in Lhasa Tibet is an NGO organization. It opened in 1993 and has been run privately by the same Tibetan family since its founding.

Donations come in from around the world and JCEC transfer all monies it receives to Jatson Chumig in Lhasa to support the school and orphanage. At Jatson Chumig, the children are first and foremost.

Please look at our 990 IRS filings to see our success and visit our website at www.jatsontibet.org to read and see for yourself the success. Employer Identification Number: [EIN] = 35-2355827.

We look forward to YOU learning more about us and becoming involved. This is an OUTSTANDING organization in which donors know their generosity goes directly towards helping the kids. Once again, 94% of every dollar donated goes to helping the children living in Lhasa.

After being a volunteer teacher in 2007 (twice) and again in 2008, I began a larger role in marketing and development. It was then that a website was created and more fund-raising occurred which is improving the lives of the children.

I would like to create a larger audience to learn how effective Jatson Chumig Educational Corporation truly is. Seldom do you read about so much success coming from such a small number of donors and of a board which donates all of its time, talent and treasure toward helping Tibetan orphans.
