Jungwa Shrungskyob


Jungwa Shrungskyob is an enterprise that addresses a huge environment concern- waste.
The high altitude with its low oxygen levels and scant bio diversity makes the region much more fragile. Till about four decades ago, subsistence agriculture was the main occupation of people here and garbage was minimal. JS makes an effort to promote livelihoods of communities engaged in waste management.

Waste collection and transformation....


Our team collects tailor waste, old sweaters, used paper and used egg trays from shops, schools, offices and the army. Our staff volunteer's vehicle runs twice a week to do most of this collection. Through this, we collect about 20 tons of used paper and 10 tons of used/waste cloth per year.

The waste then is sorted out. Paper is stacked and the cloth is seperated by size.

Once this is done, our artistes - click here for list of artistes – work at transforming this to beautiful products.  The Artistes collect raw material and make products so as to stock up for the waste to craft shop.

Through JS, the artistes are able to supplement their income, especially for those engaged in subsistence farming and household work. JS works to promote the image of disabled people as contributors to the society and to the economy and not mere receivers of charity.
