Every girl is a source of incredible potential, and unlocking that potential is a process that always starts in the classroom. An educated girl is happier, healthier, and knows that she's worthy of respect. When she grows up, she'll be more likely to have a fulfilling career, marry later in life, and have fewer children.

Laying the foundation of a quality education is one of the most important steps to achieving gender equality. All around the world, we've seen stories of educated young women transforming their communities for the better and passing on the opportunities they've been fortunate enough to receive.

A new year approaches and gives us the opportunity to reflect on the past twelve months. As we (safely) gather around our loved ones for the holiday season, the whole team is unbelievably grateful for what we've been able to achieve in 2021.

Despite being homebound due to the pandemic, we've released some beautiful animated films, been able to share underreported stories even further due to some incredible partnerships, and crowned our first annual winner of the Forces of Nature Award! We have a lot planned for 2022, and we can't wait to show you all what we have in store. For the time being though, we encourage you to relax, enjoy the holidays, and maybe take a minute to review our very own Ami Vitale's @vital.impacts print sale! Support conservation and purchase some gorgeous photographs! LINK IN BIO! Photo by @amivitale | @rippleeffectimages

Fatma Mziray was plagued by a roving group of hyenas that would slip through her fence at night and prey on her livestock. She now hangs up solar lanterns from @iamsolarsister around the pen and the light scares them away - she hasn't lost a single cow since she started. Photo by @joannapinneo | @rippleeffectimages

In vulnerable rural areas around the globe, simple tooth infections can be major medical issues, sometimes even proving fatal. Barefoot College trains women with no formal education to become dental hygienists, equipping them with livesaving skills that they will use to improve the health of their neighbors.

Beyond the health benefits of this training, Barefoot College is offering these women promising careers and financial independence. These kinds of opportunities help to balance the scales in societies where women are frequently denied the same chances as their male counterparts.

Around the world, women do a tremendous amount of vital agricultural labor. In some countries, women account for over 80% of the agricultural labor force. Despite this, many of them do this work completely unpaid - they’re put to work by their families or husbands, tending crops and livestock. Photo by @anniegriffithsphotography | @rippleeffectimages

Tomorrow is International Human Rights Day, and it's a perfect opportunity to celebrate all the steps forward that humanity has taken to address inequality and help the vulnerable. A vital component of this process has been the expansion of women's rights around the globe.

Women have the firsthand experience and community wisdom that changemakers need to tackle the roots of societal problems - and when we invest in women, we see that they put that investment right back into their communities. It's why the goals of advancing human rights and achieving gender equality can never be separated. Photo by @amivitale | @rippleeffectimages

We hope you've been enjoying our coverage of Taheatul Jannat, Ripple's first annual winner of the Forces of Nature award. She has done so much to improve the lives of women & children in her community and her home country of Bangladesh - but there's much more work to be done.

Bangladesh is a beautiful country of enormously resilient people, but is located in one of the most vulnerable places on the planet to the onset on climate change. As the seas rise, millions of Bangladeshis will be forced from their homes, and they will need as many people like Taheatul Jannat as they can get - community leaders, visionaries, activists, and good neighbors will be their most valuable resource.

Taheatul Jannat helps to counsel and achieve justice for victims of sexual violence, as well as stop child marriages in rural communities. To date, her and her team have prevented over 50 child marriages - and hope to one day see the practice eliminated entirely.

Taheatul Jannat also started her own organization called Nondita Surokkha, which works with marginalized communities in the Faridpur district of Bangladesh to provide developmental aid and legal assistance. They are committed to ensuring gender equality, women's health, children's education, stopping child marriage, preventing sexual harassment, and stopping violence against women and children. To date, they've improved the lives of over 30,000 women and children with this initiative.

Meet Taheatul Jannat! She's the winner of our first annual Forces of Nature Award and an inspiration to women and girls around the world. In 2018, she started a free school for children in the sweeper community in her home country of Bangladesh. This school helps these extremely vulnerable children gain the skills, independence, and confidence they need to survive and thrive.

This school is just the tip of the iceberg of what Taheatul Jannat has been doing to improve her community - so all this week we'll be sharing her incredible work on our feed!

When something has to get done, it's the women who will make sure it will happen. From Peru to Vietnam, when our organizations need to invest in infrastructure projects, they know that their dollar goes further in the hands of women. They have the drive and first hand
expertise to know the best way to help their neighbors.

We've seen women lead projects that provided their communities with clean water, solar energy, safe bridges, and high-quality education. When women have the resources they need, there's nothing they can't get done. Photo by @anniegriffithsphotography | @rippleeffectimages

Women are the key to developing inclusive climate change strategy - they are the community leaders and organizers with the firsthand knowledge that will be critical to effective responses.

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 Ami Vitale, AFI Best Director winner, Michael Davie and Emmy award Editor Nacho Corbella to cover the story and develop the film Mapping Survival - view it now at the link in our bio

@hindououmar’s incredible achievements began with her family - her mother’s desire to ensure Hindou’s education allowed her to pursue higher aspirations.

Young mothers often feel trapped, as if their lives have been derailed. Ruth Anyait dropped out of school for several years after the birth of her child, and said she felt "powerless". @bracworld provided a home for her and the training she needed to start her own honey business. With her earnings, she paid her school fees and re-enrolled to finish her education.
