Your donations go where it really matters … Malawi


Ripple Africa is an effective charity in Africa and we receive funding from a variety of sources – companies, grants and trusts, major donors, the general public, schools, churches, and other groups – towards our projects.

Ripple Africa is run like an efficient business, and we monitor closely all costs and procedures to make sure that the money our donors give us goes to where it really matters … Malawi. We are extremely proud of the value for money we provide for our donors.
