Often, in the midst of crises, young children bear their weight. Unfortunately, however, crises regardless of form do not know borders and it is precisely for this reason that Ripple collaborates with Rising Malawi to raise funds. Raising Malawi is a non-governmental organization in Malawi whose main objective is to monitor the welfare of orphans and susceptible children across the country. They mainly provide health services and education support through direct sponsorship.

The NGO was founded in 2006 and since then has provided direct support to over 10,000 orphans and vulnerable children. Raising Malawi believes that prone children should not "survive" and work hard by forming a beneficial partnership with local supporters so that these children find better opportunities to learn and develop their careers and lives. Since its inception, the NGO has established a Pediatric and Intensive Care Unit in Malawi to specifically meet the needs of these children.
Ripple senior vice president Eric Van Miltenburg said in a statement that he will support NGO drumming through a one-month Facebook campaign in which they will connect people willing to sponsor the NGO and collect donations for the cause. The campaign started yesterday and will end on August 30th.
"We are honored to be part of the extraordinary work of Raising Malawi with some of the world's most underdeveloped children and we are grateful to our Sound Ventures investors for making the introduction to us and this important cause"

The leaders are not strangers when it comes to supporting noble educational, faunistic and humanitarian causes.

The foundation of Ellen is an NGO that is interested in the conservation of wild gorillas in Rwanda and with xRapid, the foundation instantly converted that amount in Rwandan Francs which was immediately, but in Good news.
However, Ripple talked about donating $ 29 million to Donors Choose, an organization that provides direct funding to school projects in the United States.
