Here’s to returning the favor.

Since its launch in 2010, RAIN has reached over one million people with sustainable clean water access and has set the bar to reach two million by the end of 2015. RAIN is making a positive difference in 35 of 55 of African countries across a number of key priority areas, including building sustainable communities, catalyzing investment in clean water access, improving water and sanitation access for school children, replenishing over two billion liters of water annually back to communities and nature and empowering women through clean water access and entrepreneurship.
