Ripples USA has designed its approach to uplift an entire community while still honoring their unique culture, traditions, and beliefs. We co-develop our programs directly with each community to learn where to stop the pain where it hurts, building on existing community practices, knowledge, and strengths to create familiar yet vastly improved and more profitable programs.
We work with the community to define their specific needs and inform program design, creating layers of individual accountability to promote long-term program success and maximize community impact.
We respect local community customs, rituals, and expectations but require participating communities to follow our stringent processes to ensure that our programs provide optimal and lasting effects.
We will only deploy programs through a community’s women and youth to build up their independence and personal accountability while promoting engagement at every level in the community.
