In my 4 years of experience in jhamtse Gatsal I like most that here the kids have deep affection for each other and staff. If sometimes, someone is sad or not feeling well, they are always ready to help and try to make them happy and laugh. I feel very fortunate to be a part of this community. Through this, I got a great opportunity to give back to the world.In this community the feeling of oneness which everyone has makes us feel as a family. No one is regarded superior in position.Every decision is taken unanimously which makes working really comfortable and smooth as we did in our home.

I have joined Jhamtse Gatsal Children's Community as the Finance Manager in September 2006, just one & half months after this Community was started. At first I thought it is just an ordinary place and there is nothing much excited or new about it. But later, I discovered that this is truly a wonderful place, much and much more than I have expected. I am fortunate enough and thankful to lord Buddha that he has made me to be a part of the Community and Jhamtse International. We are in total 25 staff who are very fortunate & serving under the dynamic leadership of Venerable Lobsang Phuntsok. He has been with us for the last two years. Things have turned out a lot working together with him. He is so inspiring & energetic. I am always looking forward to consult him whenever I get depressed and he helps me a lot. After four years of its successful existence of Jhamtse Gatsal it has become a role model to the rest of the Community in the area. Jhamste Gatsal is truly a garden of love and compassion. I am extremely thankful to the supporters of Jhamste International from the core of my heart without them Jhamtse Gatsal would not be in existence. We have accomplished a lot in the past four years but still it is just a beginning and we have miles to go.

In 2006 a friend asked if I would like to sponsor a child in children's community for orphaned and disadvantaged children in India. Later I met the head of Jhamtse International, Ven. Lobsang, and having learned of my background in business and board development asked me to assist the JI board in their strategic and financial planning. Since that time I served on the Board and traveled to the community in India twice. It has been one of the most remarkable experiences of my life, travelling to one of the most remote parts of India in the Himalayas (near Bhutan), setting up an accounting system for the community and assisting in work and planning there. Also visiting with our sponsored child Mani who is now 8 years old. Lobsang is untiring in his devotion to this community and it has been a pleasure and deeply fulfilling contributing to this effort.

The Great!

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

Seeing the children who have come from the worst conditions becoming healthy and happy is enough, but also I am grateful for the opportunity to help provide a more effective organizational framework so that JI and the Gatsal community can grow and prosper

Ways to make it better...

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

JI needs to gain greater visibility beyond it's immediate friends and supporters to further advance it's goals.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Working with a group of truly remarkable people in the US and India, and seeing the lives of children radically changed.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

some of the most dedicated and loving people you would want to know. Working with limited resources, the work for these children has been life-changing for the staff, volunteers and the children.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Jhamtse Gatsal is being developed as a model to replicate in the region and beyond. It is not just an orphanage but is unique in it's structure and philosophy, a community that serves the children, but is a vibrant educational center for the region.

Ways to make it better...

Of course, if we had more financial resources,but also we need better communications between the Gatsal community and the outside world to enable JI to better convey the remarkable nature of what is happening there.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting the story out to as many as possible.This is not only about one of thousands of efforts to help children worldwide,but a unique model that could assist the success of other communities in overcoming poverty.

One thing I'd also say is that...

the vision and mission of Jhamtse International and the children's community in India will transform the way we think about bringing children and communities out of poverty. It is a unique example of the call to "think globally, act locally".
