Water is life. Everyone should have the right to it.
Rainwater collection is the simplest way to make that happen.
We are a clean water charity. We believe the solution to the Water Crisis is falling from the sky. All we need to do is help people catch it. By constructing rainwater collection systems on homes and primary schools, generations of African communities gain access to clean and safe drinking water. We teach villages about water conservation, reforestation, sanitation and sustainable agriculture. Our water projects bring about gender equity, alleviate poverty and increase the overall health of communities.
Saving rain saves lives.
