We have been involved with The Jatson Chumig Educational Corporation since it was founded by Brian and Joanne McClatchy. Due to the unbelievable job done by Brian in helping the children with their education, clothing, medical expenses and now by building a new dormitory building these children are now living an incredibly better life everyday that each of them deserve. Unlike most non-profit organizations The Jatson Chumig Educationall Corporation donates 95 cents of every dollar raised directly to the betterment of Jatson Chumig and the children that live there. This is itself an amazing story due to the efforts and 100% free time given by Brian McClatchy, meaning that he does not get paid a salary or receive compensation in any way. Because of everything I have discussed we have given thousands of dollars to The Jatson Chumig Educationall Corporation over the years and we will continue to support this great cause for years to come. Thank you to Brian and Joanne McClatchy for all of the wonderful things you have done to make such a better life for the children of Jatson Chumig.

A coworker introduced me to JCEC two years ago. After seeing the photographs and hearing about the school/orphanage I decided to sponsor a little boy. I have not doubted my decision for a minute. I have received letters and photographs from the boy I sponsor. I keep these on my desk at work as a reminder to keep things in perspective and remember what is important. My coworker has visited the school a few times and has given me first hand updates on the improvements to the facilities there. Most recently she provided me with some wonderful photographs. She has also told me about the positive impact the teachers/caregivers at this school are providing to the children. I feel confident that the donation I provide is being used in the best way possible.

This nonprofit, The Jatson Chumig Educational Corporation, has done an incredible job in both assisting and in helping to rebuild the Lhasa Jatson Chumig Welfare Special School located in Lhasa, Tibet ~ PRC.

Most recently, November 2011, a new girl's dormitory and a new toilet house were both completed. These buildings will help improve the sanitation conditions and provide a much improved standard of living.

JCEC is helping children, orphaned children and disabled children living in Tibet. They do this by raising funds to assist this school and orphanage in Lhasa ... and they do this without anyone being compensated. This is the true-meaning of a nonprofit, service for others.

With a 96% donation to organization record, I feel confident that my donations go directly to help the children living at Jatson Chumig in Lhasa.

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

seeing that this nonprofit is responsible for the building of a new dormitory, I know that my donations were used exactly for the purpose I had intended. They have full accounting and report back to me with pictures, videos and reciepts of how donations are spent.

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

tell more people that they too can improve the lives of orphaned children living in Lhasa, Tibet.

What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?

The overcrowded and sanitary conditions had to be improved. I knew that my donations would help solve these problems.

Why did you make your donation at this time?

I've helped JCEC in the past, but with their capital campaign to rebuild dormitories, I knew I could do more and have a greater impact to help these children.

What would you tell others about this organization?

Absoultely! This organization is truly worthy of greater recognition.

I recently became a donor to JCEC after my cousin highlighted to me the critical support that Jatson Chumig provides to disabled and orphaned children in Lhasa. Because of the low overhead for donations to JCEC, I feel assured that the money I can donate is being used to provide critical housing and educational support
for these children. Brian McClatchy, chief executive officer provides clear information about the needs of the children, and information on which projects are of highest priority. Mr. McClatchy is very responsive to inquiries, keeps donors updated on the progress of the projects that donations fund.

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

Reports from my cousin who volunteered at Jatson Chimig, and who plans to do so again this fall (2011). Information provided on the website also provide important updates on the progress of projects.

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

Encourage them to continue to seek appropriate funding from individuals and larger organizations that are considered acceptable donors. Encourage expansion of healthcare and physical therapy support for the children.

JCEC showed a demonstrable need for support for critical housing for girls at Jatson Chimig.

Why did you make your donation at this time?

My children are very fortunate to have a safe, warm home to live in, and I wanted to share that opportunity. I had recently recieved gifts and felt that passing the value of some of those gifts along to those in great er need was important. It also gave me the opportunity to encourage others to donate in celebration of my birthday.

What would you tell others about this organization?

It is unusual to have family who have been so involved in such an important activity, and that involvement has made me very confident that the funds that I and they donate will be very well used.

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!

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

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

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.

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

I know someone who has been there, volunteered, and knows how much all help is appreciated.

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

increase resources to expand the medical facilities for the 150+ students.
