We just got paid, we received this: Hallo, I appreciate your help, [I] am being treated well. God bless everyone in your team.🙏🙏
Mr. Walubengoh nominates for toilets St. John’s Primary school, Kaloleni Estate, Nairobi.
See more details HERE.
Even with public health insurance available since 1966, only 20% of Kenyans have access to some sort of medical coverage. With the population at over 44 million and rising, it means that as many as 35 million Kenyans are excluded from quality health care –– such a story can be said about access to clean water, toilets and sanitary towels in all low-income countries & lower middle-income countries.
Therefore, RaHa is partnering with you to Accelerate UHC. Your only role in the partnership is to:
- nominate or select school(s) or village(s) that you care about for UHC, UHC being medical cover (for those excluded from quality health care coverage), water (for the water-starved), toilets (for the toilet-less) and or reusable sanitary towels (that also help girls finish school);
- inform RaHa about logos and barcodes that you frequently see on trash or receipts …&c–– the same receipts that you get after paying for anything anywhere (Asia, North America, South America, Europe, Australia, Africa and Antarctica, Zealandia); and,
- point at the trash or receipts …&c with your phone camera.
Although your role in the partnership would make little difference to your day, it unlocks funding from other corporations that want to Accelerate UHC –– enough funding not only for the UHC you want for your nominee(s)/selectee(s), but also for more causes.
Therefore, RaHa is also:
- partnering with a children’s fund to donate RaHa Systems and Reusable Sanitary Towels to support the fund’s emergency response to the COVID-19 in South Sudan, Venezuela, … One of RaHa’s obligations in the partnership is to engage you to support the fund, including through fundraising for the Emergency Programme.
- partnering with the fund to “‘Build a Next and Better Normal’: Oxygen Therapy Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, pneumonia and beyond” –– per target nation, this involves initial analysis of current barriers to, and, securing functional equipment, training health workers and formulating a national oxygen road map while increasing access to amoxicillin dispersible tablets; and,
- fundraising to ‘Help Build Latrines’ with World Vision, Canada.
Accelerate UHC, and:
- your selectee(s)/nominee(s) get UHC that they are nominated for; and,
- up to 5% of value of the UHC goes to the Emergency Program, the ‘Build a Next & Better Normal’ or the ‘Help Build Latrines’.
Click on ‘Accelerate UHC with Receipts… &c ’ and you will start by selecting and or nominating village(s) and school(s).
Nominees / selectees get medical covers, premiums for which RaHa Solutions pay. From advert below, you see that nominees (in Kenya) currently get 2 types of medical cover, one called ‘WoteAfya’ and the other is called ‘AfyaPoa’. We are looking for similar medical cover in / for other countries.
Nominees / selectees also get Rainwater Harvesting Systems (RaHa Systems), one of which consists of a gutter system, a Zincalume steel water storage tank, a rainwater filter, a leaf separator, a down pipe with calm intake and associated skilled labour –– where rainfall is scarce, nominees get equipped boreholes.
Nominees / selectees have started getting UHC. From informercial below, you can see some beneficiaries. Click on the informercial to read it more easily.

Menstruation, a natural process in all healthy woman, keeps girls away from school.
You can now stop this, barter your adverts for girls’ time in school, see details
If you’re as upset as I am about the ‘underserved’ — I want to tell you about a game-changing solution: SDGSUPPORTERS.
Here’s how it works: SDGSUPPORTERS is a supplement in leading daily newspapers. It invites readers to nominate communities or schools for water, sanitations and hygiene services. You enable publishing of the supplement by placing your ads in it –– while nominating, readers must mention the ads, without which they (readers) would not see the invite.
This simple idea makes advertising less expensive. It also makes the services more accessible by the underserved. It’s a much-needed improvement over our cumbersome, outdated processes of availing the services. Plus, it’d significantly decrease the number of the underserved — the nominees get the services at a rate of one nominee per week.
Now, I need your help to keep this momentum going. Make advertising in SDGSUPPORTERS a top priority in the coming months.
With this critical support, you will make sure every underserved person gets water, sanitation and hygiene services. Please step up to fuel this fight today.
Thank you for your immediate response,
Sara-Jane Brownlie, the team at RaHaSolutions
We have just had a chat with parent and children at Gatina Primary School, Gatina Ward, Nairobi.
Just before talking with the parents, we distributed pieces of Safepad to the girls and asked them to feel it. As they were at it we said that ‘in her lifetime, an average woman uses 11,000 tampons, pads and panty liners that make up 200,000 tonnes of waste a year. If the waste does not clog storm water drains, it ends up in the ocean where it stays for 500 years while decomposing’. We then asked them whether they would use reusable Safepad. They said YES in unison. Being light, luxurious and stretchy; we were not surprised by a question – does it leak.
Another question was – will it not smell. This question was brought about by our instruction that soap is not needed in washing Safepad. Smell indicates presence of bacteria, fungi and the like. Safepad is designed with a permanently bonded antimicrobial technology based on a treatment that leaves a positively charged layer on the fabric. This layer attracts and kills the negatively charged microbes, like bacteria and fungi. The treatment does not contain any harmful chemicals.
Turning to parents, we quickly pointed out that switching from single use plastic isn’t as easy as we think, it often means thinking a bit more about what we buy. We asked them to think about the lots of money they would spend in 4 years on the huge amount of disposable plastic jettisoned into the environment. Why do we, without thinking, pick tampons from supermarket, put them into our handbag and dump related plastic wrapper into the bin?
It was difficult for the parents to accept fact that tampons and sanitary items are found in rivers, lakes and ocean. Besides the plastic wrappers an individual pad can contain up to four plastic bags’ worth of plastic.
They allowed us to distribute Safepad to the kids.
We are happy to inform you that Kenya Urban Roads Authority responded positively, regarding building toilets on roads in Kericho County (see self explanatory twitter conversation above).
You are like-d by the village around Makindu Primary School. They want you to mark their rainwater harvesting tank as illustrated above, for free, see more details here. When you agree, they get water which they currently have little of. When you agree, you will also enable many more similar schools and villages to get water and toilets.
