Ripple Effect Challenge launched again for 2015

  05 June 2015

Just £15 can enable one person access to safe water, changing their life for the better. In 2013/14, WaterAid reached 1.9m people with safe water, 2.9m people with sanitation and an estimated 4.1m people with hygiene promotion. The VIBES Awards are pleased to announce that the Ripple Effect Challenge, in partnership with WaterAid, will run again this year after a successful 2014. This year we want to smash last year’s total and raise over £10,000 for WaterAid projects in the world’s most disadvantaged communities. The challenge aims to show how even the smallest efforts can create the biggest waves.
