Review for Jatson Chumig Educational Corporation, Fishers, AK, USA
Having spent two months working directly with the kids at Jatson in 2006 while I was in college, teaching them english, eating lunch with them, having them perform traditional songs and dances for childrens day and getting to know the dedicated people (Tenzin is AMAZING!) who keep the school and orphanage running strong, i can honestly say if any organization is worth supporting it's Jatson Chumig. In a place with little hope, they provide a guiding light for so many. To have been able to be a part of that, even for such a short time, was life changing and has since given me purpose in life.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
2006 I volunteered, and since then i have always kept up with the website, the U.S. contact Brian Mcclatchy to have updates as to the many positive changes that have taken place as well, many improvements have been made in the 5 years since I have been there. To see the kids moving up in school when it was so difficult before is amazing.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
make it possible/ easier to purchase items from the handicraft store at the orphanage itself, which could provide funds...and I'd improve the physical therapy facilities if it hasnt been done already, they could use more equipment.
