RAIN is an international, flexible,

    transparent and innovative organisation.

    We have built up sound knowledge of

    rainwater harvesting techniques.

    Robert Meerman, Senior Programme Officer


    I like to work with people who are creative,

    inspiring and bring in new ideas and visions.

    We make this possible, as it’s a small 

    and flexible organisation.

    Basja Jantowski, Senior Programme Officer


    My work at RAIN enables me to pursue one

    of my greatest passions:

    To ensure successful cooperation between

    people from different cultures and backgrounds.

    Margherita Tinti, Programme Officer for 

    West Africa
