Our mission

To protect and promote the respect for the rights of children through community focused initiatives in partnership with stakeholders as guided by the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Our core values


We put Christ at the Centre of all we do.  Our desire is to show Christ’s love to all those we serve. We regard all people as created and loved by God.  We give Priority to People before money, structure, systems and other institutional machinery.  We act in ways that respect dignity, uniqueness and intrinsic worth of every person-the poor, the donors, our staff and their families, boards and volunteers.  We celebrate the richness of diversity in human personality, culture and contribution.  We practice a participative, open, enabling style in working relationships.  We encourage the professional, personal and spiritual development of our staff.


We aim to help children develop economically, socially, physically and spiritually.  This helps them become Christ-centered adults.

Quality Service

We endeavor to provide the highest quality service to our community.


The resources at our disposal are not our own.  They are a trust from God through donors and other well-wishers on behalf of those we serve.  We demand of ourselves high standards of professional competence and financial accountability.


We are responsive to life-threatening emergencies where our involvement is needed and appropriate.  We are willing to take intelligent risks and act quickly.  We do this from a foundation of experience and sensitivity to what the situation requires.  We also recognize that even in the midst of crisis, the destitute have a contribution to make.

Environmental stewardship

We are stewards of the Earth as a God given responsibility. We are committed to significantly contribute towards a sustainable future for coming generations by instilling environmental soundness in RI practices.

We were created for this work

Ripples International proudly adheres to International Standards while working closely with the Children’s Department and other Governmental Agencies to ensure the safety of all children in Kenya.
