  • “We have posted the video to our YouTube channel where it’s gotten 5000 views. We’ve also made it available on DVD form to our fundraising staff who have shown it to tens of thousands of people. It is certainly the finest program interpretation film we’ve ever had and has sparked a real increase in giving.”

  • “Ripple Effect Images has helped Chintan tell our stories of women and children in the informal recycling sector and therefore raise profile and resources. But most importantly, it has helped us in our advocacy programs. We have been able to share with our partners a part of our work which is otherwise very intangible : i.e., building capacity and knowledge.”

  • “I showed the Women and Water video to our youth group and told them that what they had raised the previous year was about the cost of one sand dam, which excited them. They then set a goal for two sand dams, which they achieved, raising $12,704!”

  • “The visuals are shot in such way that prospective benefactors can relate their lives with the lives of the PPES children. It also reflects the effective operational strategy of PPES, revolutionizing the world of these girls. This video shows the dream of educational empowerment and employment for rural Indian girls. We would like to thank and congratulate Ripple Effect Images.”
    The Staff of Pardada Pardadi, India
  • “The fair market value of the TIST video of $50,000 doesn’t fully measure the artistic impact in telling the story of these women. The response to the video has been fabulous. I wish you could have been a fly on the wall to hear what people have said. This has all been made possible by the amazing team at Ripple Effect Images. We are delighted and honored to be partners.”
