Review for Jatson Chumig Educational Corporation, Fishers, AK, USA
Along with Tom Leech, Carol Brighton, Jim Canary, and Nimto Sherpa, I ran the Paper Road/Tibet project at Jatson Chumig from 1996 until 2003 when we transferred the remaining funds to Tibetan Handicraft Industry in Kathmandu for continued support of the traditional Tibetan papermaking program that our group helped Jampa and Tenzin start at the school. Although the closing of the non-profit that had allowed us to work in Tibet was difficult, we have been heartened to see that Jampa and Tenzin and the Jatson Chumig papermaking group have continued the program and have surpassed our wildest dreams in that they are making beautiful thangkas on handmade papers, painted by the expert thangka painters at the school. We each made several trips to the school. I have been duly impressed at the care, education, and vocational training provided for the children and the preservation of Tibetan culture that is incorporated in the vocational training programs.
