Ideally, promoting rainwater harvesting shall be at no extra cost to you.

Ideal promoters are advertisers –– those who draw attention to their products, services, candidacy or events in public offline news medium.

To promote rainwater harvesting, you agree to mark RaHa systems with your logo or name free of charge. Once you agree to promote rainwater harvesting, we will build a water system for a school or community. If you are called ‘THE CHISHOLM TRAIL HERITAGE MUSEUM’, the RaHa system in the school or community will look like one in photo below.

We will take photos of the systems. We will send you a copy of the photos. You will display the photo at your reception or board room. The photo will tell that you are main part of the exclusive rainwater harvesting community. The photo will also tell that you are part of community that improves sanitation conditions in villages and schools.

Who can advertise Cost-free?

This cost-free advertising is for advertisers – those who draw attention to their products, services, candidacy or events in public offline news medium. An advertiser is such as a:

  • Business
  • Government Department
  • Non-Government Organization (NGO)
  • Charity
  • Politician/Political party
  • Service Organization
  • Marketer

We publish news articles about beneficiaries. Main part of the publicity are photos of different built systems. Since your logo/name is not same as that of another advertiser, photo of a system you mark is not same as photo of a system marked by another advertiser. This difference makes the publicity a lot less monotonous.

The news articles are published in the same publication as your advertisements –– these are the same ads that you plan to publish in any 7 days after agreeing to promote rainwater harvesting. The articles actually point people to your advertising. Each of the articles emphasizes the good work you are doing by helping beneficiaries get the much-needed water –– recall that a beneficiary gets water when you agree to do the marking.

Cooperation of the news article and your advertising produces a combined effect greater than sum of their separate effects. The cooperation promotes rainwater harvesting, encourages more nominations while freeing funds that we would otherwise spend on field officers and publicity. The freed money is equal to cost of major parts of the systems, so you also donate substantially –– in some countries, a tax write-off –– without spending anything extra.

Final part of promoting rainwater harvesting is optional. You may mention your support in small parts of your ads. (Assuming that your name is CHISHOLM and subject beneficiary is called KUKU, you may mention that ‘Chisholm Supports Kuku’) – again, this is a right that you may refrain from applying or enforcing.

So, Hurry!




It is Good for Business!

When you promote rainwater harvesting, you can remarkably change the lives of many people for the better.

You free RaHa from spending money on field officers and publicity. RaHa can then spend more of their funds on RaHa Clean Close Water & Sanitation projects in communities and schools. Advertising your products or services is as good as giving money to the water and sanitation project –– in some countries, a tax write-off –– but nothing extra comes out of your pocket!

Advertising on RaHa system lets your customers, friends, constituents, donors, investors –– whoever you advertise to –– get to like you, appreciate and respect you. It’s a cost-free way for you to join in a great cause in bringing clean, close water and sanitation to rural Kenyans and others around the world where women and children walk for hours to fetch water – often dirty and polluted.

In one simple process you:

  • Increase viewership of your adverts;
  • Cut your advertising expenses significantly;
  • Help a community get life-giving water that raises them out of poverty… and be more likely to buy things you advertise;
  • Gain the respect and loyalty of your readership as they see you giving in such a significant way;
  • Fulfill the UN mandate that calls upon people and organisations to help provide water resources and to recognise access to water as a basic human right;
  • Gain free publicity for 20 or more years as your name – or your company or organisation’s name or logo appears on the side of main parts of the RaHa Clean Close Water systems

“Each cost-free advertising on RaHa Solutions saves RaHa money that would otherwise be spent on field officers. Your cost-free advertising frees that money to be spent directly on clean water and toilets for villages and schools.”

– Titi Kadu, RaHa Founder

It is More Publicity!

Once your ads are running members of your beneficiary countdown on your ads –– these are the same ads that you plan to publish in any 7 days after agreeing to promote rainwater harvesting. The beneficiaries discuss with their friends and relatives on how you are helping them in getting RaHa Clean, Close Water. They keep the ads for future references. The ads become dear to the villagers and their friends and relatives.

RaHa supports you by sending out press releases promoting your effort. News articles about completed water systems appear in the same publication as your advertisements—and actually point people to your advertising!

Each of the articles or press releases emphasises the good work you are doing by helping this village get the much-needed water.

This gives readers a high opinion of you and adds to your credibility.

RaHa closely coordinates with you to ensure that the news articles and your ads complement each other.

RaHa also promotes your good works on their website, free of charge. Every time you agree to mark a RaHa system, your logo or advert appears on RaHa website. You extend the reach of your advertising to a world-wide audience.

The logo or advert and good works appear on the RaHa Website. When the project is finished, your logo or company name is posted on main part of RaHa Clean Close Water system for all who pass to see your contribution to the community. This posting is free of charge.

A representative of your business or organisation is invited to the official handover ceremony. Soon after the hand-over ceremony, a news article is published about the beneficiary. The article may be headed: [Your Business name] Transforms [Name of your beneficiary]

RaHa continues to honour you and inspire others by posting on success stories about your business and your efforts to bring life-giving water to this village.

Go a step further, label with RaHa logo the product or service in your said ads. It would be an added advantage for you to add on the product the sentence, [Your Business name] Brought Clean Water Close to [Name of your beneficiary]


Besides the rewards that come with giving, promoting rainwater harvesting has tangible advantages:
