Since 1989, Tzu Chi has established offices in 47 countries. The majority of the volunteers in those countries are ethnically Chinese. They devote themselves to charity work and cultivate blessings for themselves through perseverance and hard work.

From November 20 to 24, 2008, over 800 volunteers from 24 countries returned to Taiwan to attend annual training camps. Master Cheng Yen certified 500 of them as Tzu Chi commissioners or members of the Tzu Cheng Faith Corps. Among the group were two Zulu commissioners from South Africa.

In South Africa, with Great Love as their spiritual foundation, Taiwanese volunteers have motivated many local people to join their ranks. Despite differences in their skin color or religious faith, native volunteers in South Africa make the same commitment: to promote Tzu Chi and spread seeds of love and goodness around the world.

" Making vows without taking any action is like ploughing a field without planting any seeds; so, there is no harvest to reap. This is letting opportunity pass us by. "
