Ripple Effect and WSU

April Newsletter:


On the ground in Malawi:



After our January donation push, The RippleEffect was able to deliver many eco-latrines, crop seed kits, and even a village well to the people in the villages around Ntchea. These new amendments to village life will address the main areas of improvement that RippleEffect is working towards correcting: poor health and sanitation, poverty, and low agricultural yields. These communities now have the ability to grow, water, and sell their newly given crop seeds to increase their incomes, health, and agricultural output. However, the success story of these villagers doesn’t stop with this one gift. Because your gift increases household income, parents are able to afford school fees and provide the gift of education to their children. As you may see the gifts you give are not just a static motion, but indeed a ripple effect that spreads from generation to generation improving the lives of those in Malawi.



Did you know:


The RippleEffect was created by Washington State University’s International Research and Agricultural Development team? This group of dedicated people saw a problem in Malawi that was bigger than their hands alone could fix, so they created this non-profit to be an outreach so others across the globe could also actively participate in helping those in Malawi. As a result The RippleEffect has helped thousands of households thanks to your contributions.


A big thank you:


As always we at RippleEffect couldn’t make any impact without your giving, so from the bottom of our hearts we thank you for making such a needed change in the lives of the Malawians.
