The mission of Jhamtse Gatsal Children’s Community is to provide a loving home and quality education to local at-risk children who are first generation learners. The Community is founded on the principles of love and compassion as well as mindful and sustainable living whereby we try to live simple lives in tune with local practices. We grow some of our own food organically and harness solar energy to power some of our buildings. Our goal is to become energy independent in the next five to seven years using solar and wind energy. Currently, the Community has 89 children who are studying in Classes PreK to 12. The Community is located in the remote foothills of the Himalayas in the Tawang District of Arunachal Pradesh near the Bhutan and Tibet borders.
