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.

 

Thanks to our corporate sponsors, 100% of publicly donated money directly funds projects.

It needs to come from your heart.” As a manager for Save the Rain, she teaches women how to mix concrete, how to smooth out plaster, how to mold chicken wire. How to...

  • 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...
