Welcome to the Akong Rinpoche Foundation!

Continuing Compassionate Activities

The Akong Rinpoche Foundation is a UK based, Tibetan led charity that has been established to fulfil Akong Rinpoche’s vision for his monastery in Tibet (Drolma Lhakang), as well as giving practical and financial support to Tibetan, Northern Indian and Nepali communities for education, health care, social welfare and economic development.

Since my fathers sudden departure from this world, we his family, more than ever appreciate the work he has been doing to help others throughout his lifetime.

It is through his selfless dedication to help others that we have set up the Akong  Rinpoche foundation. 

With the support of my mother, sister and two brothers I am now going to fulfil his vision for Dolma Lhakang, and support other projects our father would have wanted to support.
