Why is it called a “children’s community?”

Although some of our children at Jhamtse Gatsal are orphans, we choose to not focus on this fact, instead we choose to focus on each child’s unique strengths. We don’t consider ourselves an “orphanage.” We chose the title “Children’s Community” to acknowledges the power and responsibility of the children as well as the staff in building this community that has love and compassion for every member.
