The Raincoat Foundation was founded in 2015 by Mikaela and Peter Granström. Clean water is a non-issue to most swedes as it flows on demand from every tap around our cities, villages and homes. To some 650 million people on this earth it just doesn’t happen that way. We didn´t start Raincoat with a clear idea or game changing innovation but what we can do is to give to those individuals and organisations that have a plan. Our policy is simple – We support initiative that will create awareness and knowledge where it is low and we support solution-oriented water projects where our actions will make a real difference.

Raincoat dwell in Ethiopia is in place

In 2016, The Raincoat Foundation made a substantial investment to support Charity Water and their mission in Ethiopia as an official Water Project Sponsor. Finally the dwell is in place.

Constructing clean water points is a time-consuming business, and over the past 21-months the Charity Water team has been dedicated to the high-quality implementation of the drilled well project that was funded by Raincoat Foundation.

We are now happy to report that our dwell in Ethiopia is in place in a community called Mukuiam-Atekna and that it serves 255 people in that community.

Over the last 30 years, people in Ethiopia have suffered greatly due to both political unrest, and increasingly unpredictable climate change. And, as often happens in developing countries, the people who are hit the hardest live in the poorest, most isolated regions—places where securing the basic necessities of life is a daily struggle for more than 82 million people.

Charity Water had a milestone year 2017, serving over 1.2 million people.

The Raincoat Foundation are happy to have been able to support their work and we are confident they will continue their great mission to solve the water crisis in our lifetime.
