OUR RIPPLE LOVE STORY
In 2011, Jane Wangari and Mary Mukami had a chance to travel to Turkana county for 3 days. The roads to Turkana were deplorable; some impassable, no-bridges, security tension that in the night some of the roads would be closed.
There is this one time they were forced to spend the night in a bus at Kainuk due to security reasons and road closure during the night.
At that time only 2 buses were operating from Nairobi to Lodwar town. Kainuk is a small town whose main road connects West Pokot to Turkana counties.
As they travelled to Turkana Jane and Mary came across some Internally Displaced Camps that were in a desolate state. The people there were barely surviving. Thus seeing the kind of situation the people there were in, Mary and Jane opted to buy two bags of beans, maize and flour after they had gotten a vehicle, whose owner, Sammy, served as a taxi for them.
They then distributed the food among the people living there at the camp. Later on, the two travellers released what they had given was a short term solution for the dwellers.
When they got back to Nairobi the two purposed to visit the region three times a year. To enable them to do that, they needed supplies and support. For that, they also reached out to family and friends to donate clothes, food supplies, Khangas and anything that could be donated. Thus, since 2012 they’ve been travelling to Lodwar, and have visited even more interior places in the region.
As they went on with the charitable journey, they were later joined by other people on this mission.
Flash forward, the simple act of giving out of love, compassion and will to do something, by these two ladies, grew into a fully functioning organisation -Ripple Love.
Inspired by the belief that equal opportunities are the cornerstone of civilisation, the desire to eradicate poverty in marginalised communities of Kenya to create the same opportunities to succeed in life regardless of the circumstances of the people in the communities they are born.
