Ripple Effect Images


Annie Griffiths is the founder and Executive Director of Ripple Effect Images, a registered 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Ripple Effect Images is a team of journalists dedicated to documenting the plight of poor women and girls around the world, and highlighting the programs that are helping to empower them, especially as they deal with the devastating effects of climate change. Working closely with scientists and NGOs to identify both the needs and the innovative programs that are helping women and girls, Ripple Effect journalists make strategic trips to document these programs. They then donate their photographs, video, and stories to the Ripple Effect Images Archive . This Archive is made available, at no cost, to our partner aid organizations and to policymakers who are working to help poor women as they deal with the tremendous challenges caused by climate change. The extraordinary Ripple Effect team includes a MacArthur Genius Fellow, as well as Pulitzer Prize, Emmy Award, and National Humanities Medal winners.

Ripple Effect's mission is to raise awareness and funding to help empower women and girls in emerging nations around the world. The organization is currently working with NGOs, ambassadors, corporate leaders, and the State Department.
