Overview Of our Work in Ghana
- Ripples works across 44 villages in the Northern Region of Ghana.
- These villages are isolated, rural communities, where Ripples is often the only women’s empowerment CBO on ground.
- 70% of people below the poverty line in these regions are women because gender inequalities limit their access to upward mobility – no childcare, financing, education, nor decision making power.
Committed to Long Term Impact
- Driving results since 2011.
- Ready to scale to meet thousands on our wait list.
Focus for 2023: Drought Resistant Farming for Food Security
Ripples serves over 9,100 women and 45,000 children in Shea Butter production. However, this is a seasonal business and due to climate change and heavy droughts they face food insecurity during the offseason. A climate friendly intervention is needed for off season food security.
