#GivingTuesday 2023

Dear Friends,

This Tuesday, November 28, is Giving Tuesday, a global day of generosity. Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past eleven years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

As in past years, Ripple Effect Project is joining Giving Tuesday.

This past year has presented a number of challenges to our friends at the Korando Education Center. Updates included an unplanned essential fence and the acquisition of the neighboring church needed to house 3 more classrooms. At the same time, our funding is strained. These unexpected challenges have forced us to question which financial obligations we can meet. 

We know that economic uncertainty and rising prices are causing us all to tighten our budgets. The same is true for our friends at Korando—which is why your support means more now than ever. 

Giving Tuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to come together to thank, help, give, show kindness, and share what they have with those in need. The Ripple Effect Project community has shown that generosity to our friends at the Korando Education Center time and again this year, allowing us to meet so many challenges—from basic food insecurity to emergency medical expenses and changing educational needs. Our community has been there to support our friends in Kisumu since 2007, and they are once again asking for our help. Please join us in supporting them.
