About Us

Ripple Effect Images (Ripple) is a small, nonprofit collective of National Geographic photojournalists who document the aid programs helping women and girls around the world, especially as they deal with the devastating effects of climate change.

The resulting photographs and films are donated to our aid partners to help them raise funding and awareness. Ripple has created a photo archive that is repurposed and shared by dozens of organizations working to empower women and girls, affect policy change, and raise awareness that women and girls are the best investment the world can make.

Ripple’s extraordinary Team includes a National Humanities Award Winner, Pulitzer and Emmy Award winners and a MacArthur Genius Fellow. In less than four years, Ripple has partnered with 16 aid organizations to document their programs in 8 countries, producing 17 films and an archive of 10,000 world class photographs.
