Titi, 4Good Inc. Advisor on Clean Water and Sustainability in Developing Countries, is a native Kenyan who thoroughly understands the culture, the system, and the people. He knows how to overcome roadblocks to accomplish his goals. He works beyond tribe and community to bring toilets and fresh water wherever there is a need —in every area of his country or the world.
Titi’s civil engineering background, management experience and understanding of the Kenyan culture make him uniquely capable to lead these projects.
While Titi works personally with the projects, he does not draw a salary from donations. All money donated goes directly into toilets for the toilet-less and rainwater harvesting or boreholes for water-deprived villages.
RaHa began as founder saw, first-hand, the difficulty some villages had in finding clean water.
While doing his first assignment –– supervising and managing civil works on a road project –– as an employee of a consulting engineering firm, Otieno Odongo & Partners; RaHa‘s founder, Titi, saw that quarries left behind collected contaminated rainwater –– these queries were the poor villagers’ best source of water.
Titi brought his engineering skills to bear on solving the pressing need for clean water close to home. Rainwater harvesting seemed the ideal solution. He researched the best methods for rainwater harvesting in low-income settlements.
He wanted a system that:
-requires no electricity;
-needs little maintenance;
-would be kept up by village members without need for skilled labor;
-is of greatest value for building cost;
-requires low to no cost to run;
-is long lasting; and,
For water storage, his research led him to durable galvanized steel tanks and zincalume steel tanks with a life-span of more than 60 years.
He got filters and other water cleaning components for both rooftop and non-rooftop rainwater harvesting. He got SOLAR toilets as means to reducing rainwater contamination.
Starting out, he helped recondition tanks for a new lease on life for Oiti village in Kajiado Kenya. The tank was not used for several years because it could not contain water. Titi used his own funds to make the tank useable.
A Ms. Grace Mueni nominated the water scarce community of Kavililo in Kitui, Kenya. Water was so scarce there, that when she drove to the community she would fill her car with cans of water to take to the village. Some members of the community had to walk 12 hours for a single round trip to collect water.
Again, Titi used personal money to drill a well or bore hole in Kavililo. But he could not continue to fund all the projects his heart wanted to do.
So Titi created RaHa, RaHa Solutions & Raha Charitable Trust.
His understanding of the need for community participation helped him set up a unique way to involve the community, advertisers, and media. Through creative publicity and shared work, RaHa builds a sense of joint ownership and responsibility.

Sarah lost 80% of her sight (see her dog guide in the photo)
Her PhD topic is on Poverty & Disability, Cause, Cures & Consequences. Her theory is that by supporting the disabled to have an income that covers their needs in their society, the impact is that the whole community will correct the issues arising from the poverty enforced on people globally.
There are several parts to the work all of which should impact positively on: the way disability is treated; how globally families with disabled members are far more likely to live in poverty; and, how much people with disabilities have to offer the world if given chance to gain education and employment.
Sarah founded & runs 4 non profit organisations in England:
one supports disabled people in poverty through advocacy. It enables the disabled to get employment within the care and maintenance industry.
One supports homeless people in the UK to build and regenerate homes for themselves.
One, a food and clothes bank, provides clothes and food to those in need – it does this through and with a community cafe.
The 4th is a collective impact project.
The collective impact project is joining together villages across Africa so that the villages can unite with one voice to build sustainable accessible villages where adults (in the villages) can receive a universal basic income (UBI), henceforth UBI health care, apprenticeships and education.
To do this we need your help as no one knows your village better than you do. We can support and guide through those who take the lead in each country.
So far, the collective impact project consists of schools and homes spread in all African countries, but Benin. More schools and homes are in Asia and Bulgaria where we are working on a deprived location on a mountain without water supply but easier to convert into another tourist location – a massive industry.
The schools and homes are introduces to the project by leaders that know best – we work with community leaders because of their dedications.
Sarah arranges for disabled students to do voluntary work on the project. She arranges for disabled ex military to provide the logistics and man power to the project. She sends to the project disabled and older people as tourists so that the villages can gain income and trade.
And, yes, politics is her side issue for raising the profile of our work.
Apart from generating real income, many of the foregoing activities together get research grant.

Rainwater Factors Limited supplies RainSafe to RaHa.
Thanks to Ruslan, CEO of Zander Agro LLC, RaHa can do boreholes on defined land or plot, for agreed water capacity and internationally accepted water quality.
RaHa borehole is the only sure solution for urgent cases and for areas that have no water at all, where other drillers and geophysics have failed to get water after several trials.
The geoscanning methoddeveloped by our engineers is close to the hammer seismic method, but we choose not only a standard echo, as classical seismic suggests, but also use resonant modes that allow us to obtain additional information about ground water. The uniqueness of the method lies precisely in the fact that we can find water-bearing cracks (zones of tectonic disturbance) and determine their coordinates with the necessary accuracy.
We can find a source of water supply with enough volume of the highest quality water precisely in the place where the consumer needs it. At consumer’s request, within a few days we determine the point of water borehole drilling, even in the places where unsuccessful search of water source has already been made.
We have more than 95% success rate of water borehole search missions and we give 3 year water source capacity guarantee per borehole –– in common practice, the success rate in water search is about 45% and no one guarantees water source capacity for any period of time.
Water extracted with our technology does not contain organic and inorganic pollutants and its quality can compete with bottled mineral water. On the other hand, decentralised location of discovered water sources is another big benefit –– recall that we get water precisely in the place where the consumer needs it. This saves us funds for infrastructure construction in our mission to provide boreholes as ‘reserves’ of water supply in the event of natural or man-made disasters and as insurance against terrorism.
For the consumer,decentralised location of water sources reduces logistics cost.
We are proud of our successful water discovery missions in many countries: Germany, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Latvia etc. and would be pleased to serve your village or school
Join us in this vital work of raising communities out of poverty.
