Brief History of JCWSS: Jatson Chumig Welfare Special School

In 1993, the government granted us the permission to open the school and with the help and hard work of our community, we were able to develop a large school. The girls and boys each have their own dormitory with house mothers, a cafeteria, a shop, washing rooms, bathrooms, etc. for the students. The school also provides an on-site medical clinic, as well as special machines to be used in therapy for the physically challenged students. 

The Orphanage is situated in the main city of Lhasa, about two kilometers behind the Potala Palace. Lhasa is a city with an abundance of natural resources, rich culture, and is politically, socially and technologically developed. It is also one of the most popular tourist places in the world. However, due to not interacting with the outside world in the past, we have not kept up with the economic and technology changes in other countries. 

There are thousands of orphaned, handicapped and poor people struggling hard for their livelihood. Most of them are in remote areas and poor villages. They face mental and physical problems coping with the outside environment. Keeping their hardships and hurdles in mind, we established this institution with educational and accommodation facilities and also to give vocational training by building the handicraft workshops. Until now, the family of this institution has tried their level best to meet the needs of the members of this school, but we need your help to remain a success for all Tibetans.
Note:  In 2013, Jatson Chumig School & Orpahange celebrated its 20th Anniversary!

This website has been setup to help inform the world of the work being done in Lhasa to help these children. We invite you see some of the wonderful products being made at the JATSON CHUMIG HANDICRAFT WORKSHOPS on-site. These workshops employ many handicapped workers who make wonderful products & the selling of these items helps the running of the orphanage. All profits from the Jatson Handicraft Worshops in Lhasa, along with contributions from others, go directly to support the children living at Jatson Chumig Orphanage in Lhasa, Tibet - PRC.
