Helping farmers have access to water all year round, whatever the weather.

Having enough water for both crops and family use can be an issue for African farmers, particularly as weather patterns have become more uncertain due to the climate crisis. Families working with Ripple Effect learn to build and maintain a rainwater catchment tank. These clever storage areas capture rainwater runoff, usually from the roof of the house, directing any surplus into the tank. This means that no matter when the rainy season comes, precious water is available.

  • When you buy a gift from Ripple Effect, you’re making a donation to help families develop their own solutions so they can grow a better future including tools, livestock and training. Your gift is spent wherever the need is greatest across the countries we work in, making a huge difference to the lives of families living in some of the poorest regions of rural Africa.
  • Gift Card and other product orders will be dispatched within 5 working days of your order being received by us and will be sent by Royal Mail 2nd class post. E-cards will be sent directly to the recipient on the date you have specified.

Before we learned about rainwater harvesting, I would spend over an hour collecting water – but now it is right here! Also, during the dry season our animals always need a lot of water, so water collecting became time consuming. Now that has reduced as I have water all the time.
