Where did the name Ripples of Hope come from?

Ripples of Hope is an expression that Bobby Kennedy used in a speech he gave in South Africa in 1968. He said:

Each time a man stands up for an ideal or acts to improve the lot of others or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope; and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
