Each of your print ads should become awesome phone video ads.

After nominated villages and schools for rainwater harvesting, toilets and reusable sanitary towels; members of public point print ads with phones to see replies to their nominations.  –– click on video to see how a reply would be seen upon pointing at a Nairobi Waldorf School ad.

We reward readers for nominating and for reading their respective replies

We also use sms to invite members of public to nominate.

Schools and villages are nominated mainly by sms. Each nomination gets 7 replies (which are in 7 different adverts in SDGSUPPORTERS).

Soon after a reader confirms to us that they have seen and or heard their 7 replies (see illustration of reply to Mr Kamau), we start providing the services to their nominee.

Soon after we provide the services to the nominee, we start to provide rainwater harvesting system to the reader’s home –– the reader is another opportunity for us to increase rainwater harvesting in the world. If the home is in urban areas, the system consists of a decorative barrel. If in rural areas, the system consists of a Zincalume or galvanised Steel water tank

Every 7 of your full page print ads should become awesome billboard in a villages or school.

After every reply (see illustration of a Kamau’s reply in video above), we build in a village or school a rainwater harvesting or toilets, or provide school girls with reusable sanitary towels. The facilities are marked with your name for every 7  of your print ads  –– see how a a facility would be marked with a Chisholm’s name.

Every facility marked with your name is published in leading newspapers  –– see how a facility marked with a Chisholm’s name is publicised.

Whenever we provide rainwater harvesting, sanitation or hygiene facility to a school, village or homestead; we publish news articles about the village/school in SDGSUPPORTERS, a supplement to leading newspapers.

The supplement is published whenever you place your adverts in it (same ads that you plan to publish in the offline publication). You place your ads in it to promote rainwater harvesting, sanitation and hygiene –– to, at no extra cost, invite readers to nominate communities or schools for water, sanitation and hygiene services.

You place your ads in SDGSUPPORTERS so that we may reply to the nominations through your adverts –– when the readers point their phones at your adverts, they see and hear the replies on their phones.

We take photos of the systems and we send you a copy of the photos per system.

You display the photo at your reception or board room. The photo tells that you improve water, sanitation and hygiene services in villages and schools.

Importantly, the photo inspires your peers to promote rainwater harvesting, sanitation and hygiene. This reduces water starvation, water contamination and school-drop-out.

So, Hurry!




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

As mentioned before, we publish news articles about beneficiaries in SDGSUPPORTERS. Main part of the articles is photos of the systems (that are marked with your logos or names). The articles emphasise the good work you are doing by helping beneficiaries get the much-needed water, sanitation and hygiene services.

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

The cooperation promotes rainwater harvesting, sanitation and hygiene, 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 , sanitation and hygiene, 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.

It is Good for Your Business!

When you promote rainwater harvesting, sanitation and hygiene, 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 & Hygiene projects in communities and schools.

From now on, advertising your products or services is as good as giving money to the project –– in some countries, a tax write-off –– but nothing extra comes out of your pocket!

Advertising on the systems 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, sanitation and hygiene services to rural Kenyans and others around the world where women and children walk for hours to fetch water – often dirty, polluted and dangerous.

In one simple process, you:

  • Increase viewership of your adverts;
  • Cut your advertising expenses significantly;
  • Help a village get life-giving water, sanitation and hygiene services 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 one year as your name – or your company or organisation’s name or logo – appears on the systems

“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!

From now on; newspaper readers, members of schools or villages countdown on your ads –– these are the same ads that you plan to publish. The school or village discuss with their friends and relatives on how you are helping them in getting Clean, Close Water, Sanitation and Hygiene services. 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 beneficiaries of this project 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 villages or schools get the much-needed water, sanitation and hygiene services.

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. When you publish 7 adverts, 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 every time you publish 7 adverts as your logo or company name is posted on main part of Clean Close Water and Sanitation 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.
