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.”

~Tsoknyi Rinpoche

First Day of School

You can feel the energy and excitement of the young nuns starting the first day of a new school year with bright shining faces! 😀

Below Mount Manaslu

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)!

An anonymous donor will make an immediate matching gift to the Tsoknyi Nuns Endowment Fund  – equal to 10% of the expected value of your future contribution up to a maximum of $10,000 per bequest
