Ah-ma’s Gift to the Silicon Valley
The Beginning of Tzu Chi Northwest Region

It was after a chance encounter with Tzu Chi’s founder, Dharma Master Cheng Yen, that one woman became inspired to bring the foundation’s work to the United States, thus creating our Northwest chapter. Mrs. Lin-Wang, who we affectionately refer to as ah-ma, meaning “grandmother” in Taiwanese, didn’t speak English, and didn’t drive, but, she had resolved to expand the spirit of great love to her community. Dubbed the "Silicon Valley Grandma," her efforts empowered more volunteers to take part in our humanitarian aid work. It was that compassion and steadfastness that sparked Tzu Chi’s San Jose Service Center in 1993. To this day, our volunteers continue to provide relief to those who are struggling.
