Our organisation is all about rainwater harvesting

Sufficient and safe water should be available to everyone. Unfortunately, many people don’t have access to safe water. How to change that? Harvest rainwater! Since its foundation in 2003, RAIN has been working with its partners to develop, spread and implement rainwater harvesting systems.

The idea is simple. There is hardly a place in the world where it never rains. Rainwater belongs to everyone. And the methods to collect, store, use and reuse rainwater (to ‘harvest’ rainwater) are easy to apply. So why not spread those methods around the world?


Rainwater harvesting: for whom?

We aim to motivate and help as many people as possible to apply these methods in a sustainable and effective way, whether the water is for domestic, productive or environmental purposes. Our focus is on making the concept and practice of rainwater harvesting (RWH) familiar to people in areas that lack sufficient and safe water sources.


Rainwater harvesting: with whom?

RAIN joins forces with as many parties as possible. In fact, since our foundation as an international network, we have supported many donors, NGOs, companies, governments and individuals to have a clear and positive impact on the world in which we live and work. Curious about your opportunities? Getting in touch with us is easy. We’ll gladly discuss the possibilities with you.
