TAKE ACTION

The school year has just begun for Little Ripples in eastern Chad refugee camps! Help us keep our schools running by sponsoring one student for a month at $20, providing a month of meals for one classroom at $50, or giving $100 for a teacher's monthly salary.

Little Ripples is supported by Elrha’s Humanitarian Innovation Fund programme, a grant making facility supporting organisations and individuals to identify, nurture and share innovative and scalable solutions to the most pressing challenges facing effective humanitarian assistance.

The HIF is funded by aid from the UK Government and the Directorate General of the European Commission for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (DG ECHO).
