Promoting rainwater harvesting and water storage is cost-free to advertisers –– here, advertisers are those that draw attention to their products, services, candidacy or events in public offline news media.

A potential beneficiary will mention you as their favourite advertiser and we will start building a rainwater harvesting system or a water storage tank for this beneficiary.

If you are called ‘THE CHISHOLM TRAIL HERITAGE MUSEUM’, the tank will look like one in photo below.

The tank will remain unmarked, if you do not like to mark the system or tank with your name or logo.

When we finish building the system, we will take photos of the systems and 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 part of the exclusive community that improves water and sanitation conditions in villages and schools.

Importantly, the photo and you will inspire your peers to promote rainwater harvesting and water storage. This will reduce water starvation substantially.

Who can advertise Cost-free?

This cost-free opportunity is for advertisers – here, advertisers are those that 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.

While building the system or tank (that is marked with your logo), we will be publishing news articles about another school or village that has already benefited from this project.

The news articles will be published in the same offline publication as your advertisements –– these are the same ads that you plan to publish in any 7 days after you are mentioned.

The articles will 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.

Cooperation of the news articles and your advertising produces a combined effect greater than sum of their separate effects.

The cooperation promotes rainwater harvesting and water storage, 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, by promoting rainwater harvesting and water storage, you also donate substantially –– in some countries, a tax write-off –– without spending anything extra.

Final part of promotion is optional. You may mention your support in small parts of your ads. (Assuming that your name is CHISHOLM, you may mention that ‘Chisholm Reduces Water Starvation’) – again, this is a right that you may refrain from applying or enforcing.

Promoting public access to water is not simply about increasing provision, improving the quality and cleanliness and signage; it is also about increasing information about availability. This is important for local people and visitors alike.

RaHa aims to improve connections between different elements of the environment: better coordination of projects, information and branding – including small details like signposting and mapping of water services – can help to shape an image (for villages, towns, cities and countries) that makes a lasting and positive impression on local people and visitors.

Therefore, RaHa Solutions includes wide publicity. Information on websites and in local leading newspapers will provide information on where water supply systems are located.

So, Hurry!




It is Good for Your Business!

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

You free us from spending money on field officers and publicity. We then spend more of our funds on Clean Close Water & Sanitation projects in communities and schools.

From now on, 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 tanks 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, polluted and dengerous.

In one simple process, you:

  • Increase viewership of your adverts;
  • Cut your advertising expenses significantly;
  • Help a village 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 tank

“Each cost-free advertising on tanks saves us money that would otherwise be spent on field officers and publicity. Your cost-free advertising (on water tank) frees that money to be spent directly on clean water and toilets for villages and schools.”

– Titi Kadu, RaHa

It is More Publicity for You!

Once your ads are running, members of a school or village countdown on your ads –– these are the same ads that you plan to publish in any 7 days after you are mentioned. The school or village discuss with their friends and relatives on how you are helping them in getting Clean, Close Water. They keep the ads for future references. The ads become dear to the villagers and their friends and relatives.

RaHa sends 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 a village or school 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 are mentioned, your logo or advert appears on this section of this website. You extend the reach of your advertising to a world-wide audience.

The logo and news about your good works appear on Success Stories when the project is finished. And, your logo or company name is posted on main part of Clean Close Water system for all who pass to see your contribution to the village or school – 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 will 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 beneficiary.
