Ridgzin is an volunteer organisation that depends on donations. Their goal is simple: to help people in need. The organisation was founded by Rinpoche, a Tibetan Buddhist teacher who lives in New Zealand and has started several meditation centres.

Ridgzin works on education projects, microcredit loans for people to start their own businesses, healthcare projects for the elderly and the sick, and they sometimes do emergency aid. This makes their approach varied, but by working locally they can makes difference through their many different channels.
