Feedback from Volunteers

AMAZING. I don’t even think that word can begin to describe what a truly wonderful place Jhamtse Gatsal is. When you go there you are completely accepted by them and treated as their own family. Every single member of the Community is incredibly giving and caring, some of the happiest people I have ever met. I was completely blown away from the love and generosity I was shown there. Very inspiring place.”Krissy
Jhamste Gatsal is the most wonderful place. Everyone who supports it, works there, and lives there, is very fortunate. It is a beautiful Community of people who are caring, loving, and giving. I found the staff to be dedicated, hard working, and committed to the success and ideals that are clearly being lived out at the Community. Without even a small grumble, any problem that arose was taken care of by the collective Community who stepped forward as a group and did whatever was needed to be done. It is so rare to see this type of behavior in action that it left a lasting impression on me.Dr. Craig Ottenstein
