Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
— Nelson Mandela

The power of education in changing lives is monumental. Not only does it change lives, but it saves lives as well. The UN declared education as one of the critical ways of preventing human trafficking, including child labor and sex trafficking.  

Rippled Purpose works with local changemakers to establish schools in impoverished communities. We facilitate self-sustaining ecosystems, where schools are able to operate without funding from Rippled Purpose after 3-5 years through local community support.

Founder's Story

DeAnne Wingate returned from India in March of 2012, with a desire to provide forgotten children living in impoverished communities with hope through education and love. These children are most vulnerable to exploitation by human trafficking.  Thus, the seed was planted for Rippled Purpose.  

Living in India was the catalyst for this former digital advertising executive to pursue a life that aligned with her heart and soul.
