About Us

Jhamtse (jhaam’-tsay) is Tibetan for “love and compassion.” Jhamtse Canada is a non-profit organization based in Canada. We are run by volunteers and sustained by individuals who participate in our programs. Our primary initiative is to support Jhamtse Gatsal Children’s Community in Arunachal Pradesh, India.


We believe the course of individual lives and the world can be profoundly improved through the active practice of love and compassion. We strive to apply these principles in everything we do.


Our mission is to end suffering, spread happiness, and build a better world through the practice of the universal principles of love, compassion, and wisdom. We work toward this mission by supporting Jhamtse Gatsal Children’s Community and other equally worthy programs.

Jhamtse Gatsal Children’s Community – is a model community in the foothills of the Himalayas in the Tawang district of Arunachal Pradesh, India.
