Jhamtse Gatsal Children’s Community:

Jhamtse Gatsal (jhaam’-tsay gah’-tsal) is Tibetan for “garden of love and compassion. It is a community, a school, and a home for about 90 children ranging in age from toddler to adolescent. Jhamtse Gatsal lies in the district of Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh, India, and the children come from nearby villages. Each of these children has a background of adversity. Our driving goal is to provide these children with better lives, helping them to achieve their fullest potential.
