“RippleNami takes this distinction to heart as we continue to empower people in Africa, Asia, and Europe in ways that will endure for generations to come.

“It is an honor to be recognized for our core mission of connecting the unconnected.

These collaborations greatly strengthen local capacity while driving impact for those needing it most,” said Phil Gahn, chief business development officer and founder of RippleNami.

Participating judges cited RippleNami’s global reach and societal impact as distinguishing its company above others. “We couldn’t be prouder of this recognition from these prominent judges and congratulate our global team for their unrelenting commitment to the mission and to the deserving people we serve,” Connolly-Labelle said.

“This year’s Stevie Award winners in the IBAs are the most distinguished group of winners we’ve seen yet,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “This year, we raised the required average score to qualify as a Stevie winner.
