Give a Hand to Little Ripples!

There’s excitement in the air! Kids around the world are heading back to school – including over 300 young children who will be setting foot in the first Little Ripples pilot preschool.  As another school year kicks off, let’s be a part of providing the back to school experience to refugee children from Darfur, Sudan.  You can help start a young child’s education that will immeasurably shape their development and lifelong learning.

Your gift of $10 will help pay for:


  1. Classroom play and learning materials such as Arabic alphabet blocks, books, and balls.
  2. Critical health and hygiene supplies to maintain a clean classroom environment (we all know how messy preschoolers can get!)
  3. Teacher trainings for the women refugee teachers, empowering them to be leaders both in the classroom and in their community.

$10 pays for all of the above – and so much more.  Help us plant the seed of education, peace, and hope for Darfuri children and their community.



Take on this effort as a team! 

Teachers, parents, and students: challenge your classrooms to “give a hand” to Little Ripples.  Classrooms can commit to fundraise $10 per student…and get creative!  Each classroom that completes the challenge can decorate a a handprint that will go up on a wall of one of the Little Ripples classrooms.  Please use 11×17 construction paper to create your classroom’s hand.

Check out how one early childhood education center took on this challenge in Los Angeles here.

You can send checks (to i-ACT with LR in the memo line) and your hand to :
i-ACT/Little Ripples
1732 Aviation Blvd, #138
Redondo Beach, CA 90278

For questions or more ideas on taking on the classroom challenge, please contact Katie-Jay at ktj@iactivism.org.
