Ripple Africa, a charity and voluntourism company operating in Malawi striving to empower communities so they themselves can achieve a sustainable future, have launched their latest edition of the popular ‘Match Funding’ campaign. But act quick as it’s only until Saturday!
£25,000 / $30,000 of match funding is available to support Ripple Africa’s projects in Malawi! That means all donations made until Saturday 1st October will be matched by a generous donor. So your donation will have double the impact during this period.
This is especially important right now as the charity is facing a medical emergency in Malawi as there has been an outbreak of cholera in the communities that they work with. They have been repairing boreholes to ensure people have access to clean water, but they would like to build toilet blocks to improve sanitation too. The money raised will be used to build the new toilets and support other projects in Malawi too. You can find out more here. In the US, click here.
Ripple Africa would like to thank everyone for their support, it really does mean the world!
Ripple Africa approach their charity in a different way to many, by providing a ‘hand up, not a hand out’. Operating since 2003, Ripple Africa strongly believe that the local people can be the solution to many of the challenges they face. They are not just another charity in Africa, everything Ripple Africa does is in response to the local communities’ needs. By enabling them, great things can happen.
Ripple Africa operate a very successful voluntourism operation in which international tourists looking for a different kind of trip can work hands on with the charity, and stay by the lake in their properties all for a modest fee which is then reinvested into their work.
