Dalai Lama Humanitarian Award

The Dalai Lama Center (DLC) for Peace and Education is a non-religious, non political, non-profit organization. As one of only four organizations worldwide personally endorsed by the Dalai Lama, the DLC has embarked on a strategy of supporting, encouraging and leading a rising tide of awareness and action toward educating young men and women.

On October 21, 2014, His Holiness the Dalai Lama honoured our founder, John Volken, with the Dalai Lama Humanitarian Award in recognition of Mr. Volken’s compassion and contribution to creating social change by effectively changing lives.
