Ripple Effect and emerge poverty free merge

Ripple Effect and emerge poverty free merged operations in 2017 but remained separated entities. In the last four years, our partnership has gone from strength to strength and together we’ve achieved great things. Following the results of a survey in the Autumn of 2020 and taking everything we have learnt in the last year we made the decision to take the next step in our partnership and fully merge emerge poverty free with Ripple Effect and realise the benefits this provides.

We wrote to all our emerge poverty free supporters in March 2021 and a copy of this letter can be found here.

Your support:

As we were already working closely together, on joint projects, every gift we will still go to the same cause - helping rural African families grow their own future and enough to eat. Your information was already shared with Ripple Effect, meaning there is no change to the way we process and protect your information, our privacy policy can be found here. Our commitment to our supporters is outlined in our Supporter Promise.

We are currently in the process of transferring support from emerge poverty free to Ripple Effect. In almost all cases this is an automatic process and does not require you to do anything. More information on specific gifts is provided below.

If you have any questions or would like to get in touch to discuss, update your details or change the way we contact you please get in touch via the following details:

Leaving a gift in your Will:

If you’ve decided to leave a gift to emerge poverty free and you haven’t let us know yet, please get in touch. We’d like to thank you and reassure you about the amazing impact that your gift will still have for families in rural Africa. If you don’t do anything, we’ll still receive the gift in your Will. Please contact Rebecca at or visit this page for more information.


Please remember to now make cheques payable to Ripple Effect.

CAF donations:

All existing CAF donations will be automatically transferred to Ripple Effect. Please ensure any CAF cheques are made payable to Ripple Effect.

Stewardship & Charities Trust:

All gifts through these channels will be automatically transferred to Ripple Effect.

Direct Debits:

Through your bank we will automatically transfer your support, so you do not need to do anything. Regular gifts not only provide a secure and convenient way to support but also help us reduce administration cost and plan for the future more effectively. We’ll write to you with your new reference number and gift schedule 10 days before any gift to Ripple Effect is made.

Standing Orders:

As standing orders are set up between yourself and the bank directly, we are not able to transfer this across. We have written to every supporter who gives in this way with more detailed instructions of how to continue their gift. If you’d like to continue to give to Ripple Effect in this way you will need to set up a new regular gift. This can be done online here.
