Climate change is a burden for all humankind, but it doesn’t affect all people equally. Hindou Oumarou Ibrahim grew up within the Mbororo pastoralist community in rural Chad. Over the years, Ibrahim observed Lake Chad, once one of the largest lakes in Africa, shrinking significantly and threatening the livelihoods and survival of more than 30 million residents.
She brings together farmers, fisherman, and herders from more than a dozen African ethnic groups, to capture their ancestral knowledge and spatial information, then creates 3D participatory maps of the natural resources. This tool helps communities plan their movement, and promotes better relations among the groups.

Ripple Effect Images assembled a team composed by World Press Photo winner @amivitale, AFI Best Director winner, @mickdavie and Emmy award Editor @nachocorbella to cover the story and develop the film Mapping Survival - view it now at the link in our bio

Stories happen all around us, every day; stories of hope, of joy, of grief, of resilience... and most of them completely pass us by. Stories need to be told to be noticed, and without the right raconteur even the most inspiring story can pass us by. We are proud to have been able to share dozens of these stories with you all over the years, and hope to do so for many more to come.

The power of a story is anything but figurative. The further that word spreads about a community in need, the more people are willing to share their time and resources to help. It's how Ripple Effect Images has managed to inspire millions of dollars in donations to our aid beneficiaries since our founding. Photo by @ljohnphoto | @rippleeffectimages

Each one of these women holds a key to the lockbox in the middle. They are the appointed guardians of the funds put together by their local women's lending group. Dozens of women in this rural community in Myanmar have come together to raise each other up and offer microloans at affordable rates.

When women are faced with a society that is reluctant to invest in them, they respond by investing in each other! With community education and support from PACT Myanmar, these women have been given the tools to protect their homes, their village, and their families. Photo by @ljohnphoto | @rippleeffectimages

Girls represent the future of India, just as a seed represents the tall tree it will one day become. As a way of honoring their newborn daughters and protecting the earth, the people of this village in Piplantri, India plant 111 trees for each new baby girl born there.

Once a region devastated by marble mining and deforestation, this area is now one of the most lush and fertile in the whole country. Over 3 million varieties of trees dot the landscape, speaking to the enormous progress made in the community. Photo by @johnstanmeyer | @rippleeffectimages

Billions of women around the world sacrifice their health to keep their children's bellies full. They have no choice but to cook over smoky solid-fuel fires, inhaling the equivalent of 40 cigarettes per day. The health problems caused by this constant smoke inhalation are myriad, and cause over 4 million deaths per year.

Every single one of these deaths is preventable with the adoption of clean cookstoves, like the ones produced by StoveTeam International. Their stoves have reached over half a million people and prevented a million tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere. Photo by Lynn Johnson

War wreaks destruction on a horrific scale - it is only natural that when conflict breaks out that civilians leave as quickly as possible. As many as 86 million people around the world have been forcibly displaced, sometimes by conflicts that have no end in sight. Despite the hardship of an experience like this, life goes on... and sometimes begins anew.

New babies are a common sight at refugee camps where families have been living for years at a time. Beyond simple shelter, this creates the need for education, recreation... a community. It takes a village to raise a child, and the modern camps built by UNHCR aim to provide just that. These children may never have seen their home country, but they'll always find a loving home among their family. Photo by Lynn Johnson
