Our work restores tired land
We are planting 44,000 fruit trees in our Responsible Carbon Project in Ethiopia, which will be nurtured by communities because they provide food, shade and income
We have installed rainwater harvesting capacity, to help farmers to weather climate-induced droughts.
The farmers we work with have produce organic compost, which improves crop yields and helps restore tired land.
We teach farmers to manage livestock sustainably
In rural Africa, livestock are often one of the best, locally appropriate solutions to malnutrition.
Industrial scale beef farming is contributing to the climate crisis, which threatens the livelihoods of the farmers we work alongside. But Ripple Effect farms use agroecological methods to make sure that livestock are managed sustainably, and actually support the restoration of tired land, rather than degrading it.
These farms are well-managed natural systems that sequester carbon overall. Learn more about our responsible livestock farming.
We build confident and thriving rural communities
Our projects support young people to start small businesses and stop the brain drain from rural areas.
Ripple Effect enables people to have access to microfinance through savings and loans associations, so they can invest in their businesses and save money for the future.
