Target: Jennifer Tang, Little Ripples Project Coordinator
Goal: Encourage Little Ripplesto provide preschool education to 7,300 children ages 2 to 6
Little Ripples is a nonprofit dedicated to helping two refugee camps in Darfur. During the daytime, mothers and fathers in this city are forced to leave their children at home, unattended, while they search out work and sources of food. The unattended children are vulnerable to everyday dangers such as cars, and older children who might otherwise attend school must looking after their younger siblings. Little Ripples, by providing preschool care to these younger siblings then has the “ripple effect” of allowing the older siblings to attend school themselves.
Education during this formative time is essential for equipping children with basic literary skills that will enable them to advance in the job market and reduce the chances that they will be compelled to an impoverished existence.
