OUR APPROACH

The Need

We can not all do great things but we can all do small things in a great way.

EDUCATION

In a place like Turkana county, 80% of the population, with a majority of them being women cannot read or write. They can neither communicate in the most basic universal language like English or Swahili. Thus, this has made it easy for the dwellers of Turkana to be easily taken advantage of by non-dwellers.

WATER

Presently, two billion people around the world are living in water-stressed areas, and the same will be true for more than half the world’s population by 2050 if no action is taken. Based on projected demand, the world will face a 40% shortfall in freshwater supply within 10 years.

SOCIO-ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT

The latest poverty data from The World Bank indicates that 36% of People living in Kenya are still living below the poverty line, while youth unemployment stands at 39%. Ripple love Org concentrates more in the marginalized communities of Kenya, rural, arid and semi-arid areas of the north, as well as in the slum areas of Nairobi.

MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES

Ripple love is keen on mental, neurological and substance use (MNS) disorders in Kenya, specifically alcohol abuse, depression and epilepsy, because of the limitations of Kenya’s healthcare infrastructure, lack of availability of medication and data regarding MNS disorders. Additionally, we emphasize the potential benefits of incorporating traditional and faith healers (TFTs) into the Kenyan healthcare system.

ELDERLY CARE

Old age is a a sensitive phase , elderly people need care and comfort to lead a healthy life without worries and anxiety resilience among communities. Lack of awareness regarding the changing behavioral patterns in elderly people at home leads to them been abuse by they Kins.
Statistically most of the elderly people depend on there children for food and clothing despite the fact that most of the children might not be physically available and others are not in the financial capacity to provide the care required by there elders. Ripple love in collaborations with other partners organizes campaigns that offer food, clothing and health check ups for the elderly people

FOOD & CLOTHING PROGRAM

Nothing makes decluttering easier than knowing your clothes are going to a worthy cause — or at the very least, not going to the dump. Ripple love org collaborates with well-wishers to deliver 2nd hand clothes in marginalized communities every 3 months accompanied by basic food items.

Together, we create lasting change for communities in vulnerable situations.

How do we measure progress?

Numbers are a key component of Ripple love org monitoring and evaluation efforts. The amount of food and clothes we donate, students we support, and jobs we help create are all transparent markers of what the projects deliver and to how many people. But numbers, while useful, offer only a limited portrait of how our work positively changes the lives of thousands of people in marginalized & vulnerable situations.
