We answer the question:

“How can we maximise the resources that developing countries have; to do the things they need to do …, while minimizing the burden of public debt”

About RaHa Solutions

Targeting SDGs, we: build rainwater harvesting systems on schools’ rooftops, on roads crossing water starved areas, on open fields etc; purify rainwater for the ‘over–served’ in order to avail plenty of low-cost municipal water to the underserved; build toilets in toilet-less homes, schools and roads; and, do menstrual hygiene management (MHM) as a tool for managing the toilets.

We work at a rate of one beneficiary per calendar week in least developed countries (LDCs) and lower-middle-income countries. To maintain or enhance dignity of beneficiaries, we apply high quality of products.

Members of public contribute substantially to our work by nominating beneficiaries for our work. So far, all nominees require our work retrofitted to projects done with funds from the traditional sources (e.g. public funds, overseas development assistance, individual donors, foundations and CSR). This shows that funds from the traditional sources aren’t enough for SDGs at the scale that is needed, particularly for LDCs and lower-middle-income countries, which require about $1.4 trillion in annual investments.

Therefore, we mobilize some of $5 trillion currently sitting in cash with the private sector to our work. Companies support SDGs by promoting our work while promoting their products and services. The more the promotion, the more the work we get. The more we do the work, the more the money we get for our work.
