I have participated in the very beginnings of Jhamtse International from its inception. As a former teacher and professor and now a psychologist I have been so heartened by the development of this project in all its aspects. The school in India is a marvel - it has provided for all the needs of its students and its curriculum with its inclusion of teaching on compassion is light years ahead of the curriculum in any US public school. The support structure and the inclusion of young people in this country is also a very positive aspect of its organization. Talented and visionary people have given their skills to the organization and it is run effectively with money going to the school and delivery of service to the children. The three girls I sponsor are absolutely thriving in every way and it is a delight to hear about their progress. I feel confident that this program will lead to the full development of these young people and the school program will become a model for the educational enterprise that leaves nothing out for the heart or the mind.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
personally receiving the Buddhist teachings and in seeing the results of the school in India for my three sponsored children
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
seeing the realization of profound spiritual teachings in a concrete educational enterprise which truly serves the diverse needs of the children who attend the school or are involved in supporting it.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
wonderful well-meaning and talented people who have really made something extraordinary happen that has changed lives for the good.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
create a network of more schools in similar areas and publicize the reality of good mental education existing together with good heart education
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
