Melinda commented on The Ripple Academy: when women thrive, the Earth thrives.

Thanks! We've now added info about our partnerships that are in place.

Thank you for sharing this idea! This is such important work. I'm curious about who will be leading the inception workshops, community mobilizations, studies/assessments, mapping community mapping, and capacity building, as well as whether there will be guidance/facilitation given to the participants who engage in the dialogues once they are developed? Are there women from the community who will be identified as leaders to carry out the program? What has been the community response to this idea thus far, particularly from men? Again, thank you for sharing and for the work you do! Looking forward to learning more!

Thanks for sharing your idea! I'm curious how women will be paired or matched with a protector -- how will they be able to take advantage of this resource? Will it require anything from the woman (e.g. signing up whenever protection is needed, etc.)? Looking forward to learning more!
