Thich Quang Thuong
Founder

Founder of Tu Tam in 2012. Thich Quang Thuong is a Buddhist monk with a life goal of bringing happiness and joy to people.

In his early 20s, he has witnessed an event that he would never be able to forget… One fine afternoon, he saw a young lady holding her baby on one hand while digging up food from pile of trash using the other hand.  She carefully set aside something that she felt still edible and tossed what she deemed have been rotten.  This was in the middle of summer heat of Saigon, Vietnam.  In 2007 he migrated to San Jose, CA where he is currently a resident of.  His goal is to create awareness of world hunger and working with us in fighting poverty to improve the quality of life.
