RAIN is an international, flexible,

    transparent and innovative organisation.

    We have built up sound knowledge of

    rainwater harvesting techniques.

    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.
