What is Ripple Effect?
Ripple Effect is an Africa-based empowerment program created by Washington State University and Total Land Care, a now-independent non-profit organization conceptualized by WSU faculty members. We partner with the people of Malawi to empower individuals and communities to:
- Improve water quantity and quality
- Build infrastructure for diversifying crop production, e.g. irrigation
- Increase the amount and nutritional quality of food grown and consumed
- Create new educational, and other, opportunities for Malawians of all ages to improve their quality of life
The true success of Ripple Effect lies in its sustainability. We provide a “hand up” not a “hand out” to Malawians, establishing partnerships with lasting positive impact to support people of this African nation lift themselves out of poverty. Your contributions are added to those of working Malawians to establish a pool of capital and technology that enlarges the circle of prosperity.
