OUR MISSION

 

Every 15 seconds a child dies from lack of access to clean water. Save the Rain teaches water-starved communities in East Africa to use rain as a sustainable water supply, stopping the needless deaths caused by the Global Water Crisis. To achieve our mission, we educate communities to harvest the rain through roof water collection, surface water collection, and groundwater recharge. We educate recipients on the importance of reforestation, sanitation, hygiene, and sustainable agriculture through permaculture design. Our systems are built from local materials by a community elected local workforce. They require no electricity, pumping or filtration, thus assuring sustainability.

 

We are Save the Rain because saving rain saves lives.

    Her name is hard to pronounce. But her laughter is even harder to forget. We first met Wariankira at a village meeting. She had a really dignified manner but when you looked closely, she also had a quiet sadness.   Regardless of her elected position on the school board committee, Wariankira was also selected as one of the families most in need of assistance in her...

  • VIOLETH

    She won’t be intimidated. She doesn’t even flinch as the room fills with men in leadership positions, years her senior. Some wearing traditional Maasai warrior attire, some in suits. They take their seat in front of us. They are not accustomed to learning from a young Tanzanian woman. Their melodic languages echo in the failing classroom where we gather. Violeth is ready and here to teach...

  • Aminaeli

    Nothing steals Aminaeli’s laughter. Most Tanzanians are taught to cover their mouths when they laugh. Some have severe Fluorosis – a dental discoloration that occurs from drinking water with high levels of natural fluoride. It leaves brown striations on the teeth.   Aminaeli made laughter a life raft. It eases her pain. It rides her through trying times. It allows her to empty out and fill...
