The head nun of Dieu Giac Pagoda

The head nun of Dieu Giac pagoda has a huge heart and cares greatly about her local farming community.

I asked her why she became a nun. She said she went to university and studied economics. After graduation and a years work she just felt no interest in the worldly life and felt her love was far to big to give to one man or one family and decided to become a Buddhist nun and then she would be able to share her love with many.

Her concern for her local community of predominantly impoverished farmers means she has referred many children to us who need help to receive an education over the four years we have worked with her.
