How “green” is the school?

Jhamtse Gatsal’s remoteness necessitates self-sufficiency. Jhamtse Gatsal is situated in an area poorly served by basic utilities such as clean water and electricity. The community is seeking to be energy independent. Our short-term goals include developing our own water purification system that will not require burning wood, growing a major portion of the produce we consume in our organic gardens, and developing a waste management program that can be an example to the region.
