Mission: The mission of the Jatson Chumig Educational Corporation is to improve the housing, health, educational and vocational opportunities available to the orphaned and handicapped students who attend The Jatson Chumig Welfare Special School in Lhasa, Tibet ~ P.R. China
Results: JCEC raised funds to build a new kindergarten room, a new physical therapy room in 2010. Also in 2010, new greenhouses were built to help defer the cost of buying vegetables and instead, we grow our own to help feed the children. In November, 2011 ~ a new girl's dormitory was completed (home to 78 girls) and a new toilet house was built which improved overall sanitation for everyone. In 2012, a new boy's dormitory was completed adding a new home for 80 boys. In 2016, a new playground was built along with four new handicraft workshops and new apartment / housing for the handicapped employees of Jatson Chumig / handicraft workshops. Currently, donated funds also pay for the educational cost of the 29 children now attending colleges & universities in Tibet and mainland China.
Target demographics: Serving orphaned and disabled orphaned children living in Lhasa, Tibet since 1993.
Direct beneficiaries per year: 150+ children
Geographic areas served: Lhasa, Tibet ~ PRC
Programs: Handicraft Workshops help continue the Tibetan art of papermaking, boot making, incense making and making clothing. Education provides the children an opportunity to truly change their life. Jatson Chumig provides a full primary education (K-6) and children in middle school through high school and even university gives these kids tremendous opportunities to improve their lives in the future.
When many are turning their heads away from Tibet due to China's influence around the world, individuals who have the hearts and soul for humanity steps up to provide education and living to physically challenged and orphaned Tibetan Children who would otherwise be unnoticed in the Occupied land. I really appreciate what JCEC is doing to help under privileged children in Tibet hidden from the world behind the China's Iron Curtain.
