The founder of Tzu Chi Foundation is Master Cheng Yen, a Buddhist nun whose principle is to cultivate kindness, compassion, joy and selfless giving. With Her strong will to free all living beings from suffering, in 1966, She established a charity organization to help all people as part of Her great mission.
With the basic principles of sincerity, truth, faith and honesty, Master Cheng Yen started to collect charity funds. All the funds from the donors were fully used for charity mission. Buddhist teachings serve as guidance for the path of Tzu Chi members. They implement Dharma in their daily lives sincerely.
Tzu Chi is an amazing foundation that upholds humanistic values and aims to provide appropriate and quality education, health, aid, and service. Although sometimes there might be minor chaos within the school, particularly in secondary (which is honestly normal), the school still tries its best to reach out to the students and hear out their opinions (normally through the Student Council). I hope that negative comments (not just about this school) can be reduced and instead, people will give constructive criticism and feedbacks that can possibly help improve the school. Thank you.
