Ripple Effect Images Mission: Harnessing the power of visual storytelling to help scale solutions for women and girls globally.
Ripple Effect Images (Ripple) is a small, nonprofit collective of National Geographic photojournalists who document aid programs helping women and girls around the world.
The resulting photographs and films are donated to our aid partners to help them raise funding and awareness. Ripple has created a photo archive that is re-purposed and shared by dozens of organizations working to empower women and girls, affect policy change, and raise awareness that women and girls are the best investment the world can make in our shared future.
Ripple’s extraordinary Team honors include Pulitzer Prize, National Humanities Award, World Press and Emmy Awards. In just five years, Ripple has partnered with 22 aid organizations to document their programs in 12 countries, producing 27 films and an archive of more than 20,000 world class photographs. Ripple’s robust social media network reaches more than 30,000.
