The impact of the novel Coronavirus, COVID-19 is being felt around the world, and nonprofits are no different. During these challenging times, Ripples USA is monitoring the situation and responding accordingly. Currently, the following operations have been impacted:
-Spring and Summer Internship Programs have been postponed
-All Domestic and International travel has been suspended
-All US and UK office employees and volunteers are working from home
However, our projects on the ground in Africa are still operating business as usual, and therefore, we still need your help. For many people in Africa, the CDC guidelines are impossible to adhere to. Social distancing or working from home are simply not an option. Ripples USA’s immediate focus is working to put programs in place to educate our women and their communities on how to keep themselves safe during this uncertain time. On June 1st, Ripples USA will be rolling out an education program to 33 communities in Ghana that we serve, impacting a population of over 50,000 people. These community events will be held to help educate and spread awareness about COVID-19 and its impact. Please consider donating to help make this program a success.
