our vision

A water secure world free of hunger and poverty where every individual lives a dignified life.


Today, millions of people live daily with the effects of water insecurity. 2.1 billion people currently live without access to safe water. In South Sudan, lack of access to water is a reality for 50% of the country’s population. More people are losing access to water every year, worsening the effects of armed conflict, hunger, poverty, health challenges and further environmental degradation.

Holistic and sustainable solutions to the roots of the water and food crisis are urgent. At Rainmaker, we believe that water is the divide between poverty and prosperity. We are proud to work alongside many individuals and organizations towards the achievement of a water secure world. In recognition of the International Decade for Action “Water for Sustainable Development” 2018-2028, the UN states, “Water is critical for sustainable development and the eradication of poverty and hunger, and is indispensable for human development, health and wellbeing.”

Thank you for joining us on our journey to build dignity drop by drop.

Yours sincerely,

Our Guiding Principles


Our vision can only be accomplished by opening our hearts, working together and putting communities first. To face the daunting challenges of the 21st Century, we go beyond silo effects and foster diverse and cohesive networks of collaboration and cooperation with the individuals, organizations and companies who share our goals.


We approach our work and the people we serve with love, kindness and acceptance, believing that each human being is born with vast potential and must be nurtured to achieve it. We are optimistic about the future and build towards it vigorously.


As a diverse and youthful team, we inject creativity, ingenuity and inspiration into our work, keeping the vision and the details aligned throughout. We seek innovative, integrative and sustainable solutions to the world’s pressing challenges. There is no amount of aid that will end suffering if its application is not sustainable and does not elevate the voices of affected communities.


We are honest, transparent and inclusive. We are dedicated to our vision and committed to excellence in all aspects of our work. We are trustworthy and accountable to the communities we serve and to our communities of support.


We accept the unique social, cultural and economic character of each partner community and walk alongside them towards our shared vision of peace and prosperity. We respect and are grateful to all those who join us on our journey to restore dignity to vulnerable people around the globe, and who support us generously with their resources, time and guidance.


We stand tall for what we believe in - building resilience in hard-to-reach communities and ecosystems. We inspire active global citizenship and water stewardship through visionary leadership.
