Diamond Cutter Wisdom believes in paying it forward and supporting causes that make the world a better place.
We are grateful to be able to support the few charity projects below.
Asian Classics Input Project
Founded in 1988 with a grant from the David and Lucile Packard foundation, the Asian Classics Input Project (ACIP) is dedicated to locating, cataloging, digitally preserving, and freely distributing rare and precious collections of Tibetan and Sanskrit manuscripts.
These surviving texts hold the philosophical, cultural, and religious heritage of Asian traditions dating back more than 2500 years.
It's a race against time for ACIP:
- Countless books lost over the generations
- Many books that do remain are extremely fragile
- Many books unavailable due to politics or other problems
Diamond Mountain Retreat Center
Founded in the United States, Arizona by Geshe Michael Roach in 2000, Diamond Mountain Retreat Center (DMRC) aims to create the conditions for an extensive change in our global community – a cultural shift that makes retreat possible.
Big on eco-friendliness, the DMRC provides an alternatively-powered rural environment in the desert where people seeking for a timeout from their busy lifestyles can come for retreats.
Operating as a “mostly self-supporting” retreat center, DMRC relies on donations in order to make their programs available to all.
The Knowledge Base
The Knowledge Base is about sharing a new view of the world which can make you successful in every aspect of life. Its basic tenet is that our reality is shaped by how well we take care of others.
Acts of kindness towards others create seeds in the mind that determine everything about the people and the world around us, as reflected in everything from our finances, health, and partner, on up to happiness, peace of mind, and enlightenment.
Children Food Fund
The Children Food Fund is set up to take care of the health & well being of little children in terms of food water and assisting in making shelter more viable for them.
This fund also supports in other areas such as health & well-being and education programmes that help these little children grow well in society, be it in forms of technical or life skills.
Abigail Orphanage Home, Indonesia
Abigail Orphanage was built on 800 sq meters land. It was initiated by the late Rev. Mr. Eliezer Kurniawan and Lince Manusama and also by the late Mrs Jeany Sondakh and Margareht Isye Thenu in 1993. From the four, two people passed away, and Isye has left Abigail. It is now managed only by Lince assisted by Posha (Lince's first child).
Abigail Orphanage started initially with 5 children, and over time became known to the public and we increased until 85 children with various backgrounds like broken home, abandoned, and the poor parents from the rural areas of Kalimantan and Mentawai and Manado who can't send their children to the high school.
Many thanks to the support from the community, now they have all completed high school and started work. Some even are married and live outside the country.
善德 Orphanage, Malaysia
Pertubuhan Kebajikan Shan De Johor was established in 11th October 2011 as an non profit orphanage. The main objective is to help the community take care of their helpless and unfortunate children. The orphanage accepts children from all races regardless of religious beliefs.
Their goal is to provide the children a comfortable accommodation, healthy diet and a good long-term education so that the children will be independent and can have brighter future.
Every child is born to be loved and care for. However, some less fortunate children lost their privileges at a tender age. Because of love and passion, the founder of the orphanage, Ms Sia Po Huay (Sammi) and her friends offer their time, strength and mind to set up Shan De orphanage.
