Grantee Spotlight: Ripple Effect Images
George Family Foundation grantee, Ripple Effect Images, is dedicated to bringing attention to under-reported issues and solutions that impact women and children in seven key areas: Food, Water, Health, Education, Energy, Economic Empowerment and Climate Change Impact. Ripple Effect’s recent film “We can do it too” seeks to raise awareness around why achieving financial security is an uphill battle for women in rural Myanmar. To solve this, women are teaming up in extraordinary ways to lift themselves out of poverty and invest back into their communities. Together, they gather in groups to start communal savings banks, elect leaders, receive financial training and start small businesses, all while strengthening their social connections and ability to bring about change. This platform is possible through the award-winning micro banking program, WORTH, a subset of PACT Myanmar, one of the oldest running aid organizations in the country.
PACT Myanmar has broadly leveraged Ripple Effects film and still images across multiple platforms to raise more than 5 million dollars of aid funds.
