Dolpo Tulku Charitable Foundation | DIRECTLY to DONATION



860 families received Relief Packages with supplies for one month during lockdown in Kathmandu


The fourth phase of the Food Programme has been diligently implemented by DTCF staff members in collaboration with local administrators and in accordance with as many safety measures as possible.

We would like to appreciate all the friends, disciples, donors and well-wishers of Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche who walked with us in this journey of service. And also huge respect to team members for their courage and willingness to serve in the field.

Although the strict lockdown in Nepal was lifted from one day to the next on 22 July 2020, schools as well as other training facilities and many public institutions remain closed. Since tourism has completely ceased to exist and many of the daily wage earners depend on this industry, the situation will remain difficult for them. It is questionable whether the tourism industry will be able to recover somewhat over the autumn, and economists believe that it will take at least 2-3 years for the economy to recover.

In addition, many Nepalis live off the support of their relatives who work abroad as guest workers. However, due to the global corona crisis, many of these contractual workers have lost their jobs and now return to Nepal as unemployed.

Due to all these factors, the situation of the poorest members of society in Nepal remains tense and many of the daily wage earners are dependent on further support. 

The foundation plans to continue the same support to additional families in the coming days. Therefore, if any individual or organisation is willing to be part of this noble cause, they are invited wholeheartedly to support. No donation is big or small as any amount will help a family to mitigate their ration struggle so we earnestly and humbly would request to take part in this gift of support and togetherness. 

€35/$38 will be enough to support a family with food for one month! It will provide a whole family system with: 25 kg of rice, 5 kg of lentil, 10 kg of wheat flour, 4 litres of oil and 4 bars of soap.


Thank you to all the donors for your kindness and generosity!

The Dolpo Tulku Charitable Foundation


The Dolpo Tulku Charitable Foundation (DTCF) was founded in 2007 and recognized as a charitable foundation by the Nepalese government in 2010. It implements the projects of Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche and Khenpo Pema Dorje. All donations collected world wide are funneled through the foundation, which distributes them to the various projects. In their functions as spiritual leaders in the Dolpo region, the local population directly discusses problems and wishes to them, where support is needed.


For a project to be accepted by the DTCF, it is required that either an individual or the community as a whole assume responsibility for the project, present a plan for the implementation and give an estimate of the cost. Especially the initiatives of young people, who have fininshed their education and want to use their knowledge to improve their native region. All activities of the DTCF reflect therefore the immediate needs of the people in Dolpo.


The DTCF works mainly in three areas:


  • Conservation of environment and culture – This includes education on environmental issues like garbage disposal as well as the building of bridges and the renovation of temples as well as other Buddhist buildings like stupas-

  • Health – Here the DTCF supports both health programs using allopathic as well as traditional Tibetan medicine. Additionally, a group of elderly people receives financial support for their livelihood.

  • Education – The main point of concern in this area is to combine traditional education from this Himalaya region like the local language, Buddhist philosophy and Himalayan culture with modern day education.

 Additionally, in 2015 the DTCF also implemented a variety of earthquake related efforts like distributing building materials, food and provided medical care. Total expenditure up to April 2016 was 150.000 Euro / 170,000 USD.
