In 2012, a new boy's dormitory was completed adding a new home for 80 boys. In 2016, four new handicraft workshops were built along with new apartment/housing for the handicapped employees of Jatson Chumig / Lhasa. Currently, donated funds also pay for the educational cost of the children of which 27 are now attending colleges & universities in Tibet and mainland China.

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 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 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!

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.
