A non-profit charity organization providing ongoing charity activities in Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal and India.
In 2003 spiritual director Zasep Rinpoche visited Mongolia on a fact-finding mission to determine if Gaden Relief should help the reflowering of Buddhism since the end of the socialist era in Mongolia. Rinpoche was accompanied by future Mongolia project coordinator, Matthew Richards.
This orphanage provides an essential service to the Ulan Bator community at large. Rinpoche made a couple of personal visits to the orphanage and in 2016, delivered $4000 to help them with their services.

Gaden Relief has recently instituted a scholarship project for the education of poor and needy students in Mongolia. Education and cost of living in Ulaanbator continues to rise and it is more and more of a challenge for poor and disadvantaged young Mongolians
