Tsoknyi Humanitarian Foundation
We believe empowering nuns and girls through education and opportunity makes the world a kinder place.
“When people meet the nuns, even when conducting the simple tasks of daily life, they are changed for the better. How does this happen? It is because they have become a living source of peace, love, and compassion.”

Beautiful footage from Tsoknyi Rinpoche’s childhood village of Samagaon highlights the life of women and the grinding poverty they experience. Most of the girls at Tsoknyi Gechak Ling are from Samagaon. Delightful historical photos of Tulku Urgyen, Tsokyni Rinpoche, Mingyur Rinpoche, and Lama Tashi Dorje (grandfather)!
