In this alliance, RAIN and five other Dutch NGOs work together with dozens of local partners in eight low-income countries in Africa and Asia. Its five-year programme, which is funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign affairs, started in 2011. The aim is to build and strengthen an environment in which local people can assert and realise their right to sufficient quantities of safe drinking water, adequate sanitation and hygienic living conditions, in order to improve their health, nutritional status and economic living standard. The alliance follows the FIETS strategy, pursuing Financial, Institutional, Environmental, Technical and Social sustainability. RAIN contributes its network and experience in rainwater harvesting, and is the lead on environmental sustainability.
