Through RAIN, The Coca-Cola Foundation has provided access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene for over 7 million people in 41 African countries.

For over a decade, RAIN, the Coca-Cola system’s groundbreaking community water program, improved millions of lives and measurably contributed to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal on clean water and sanitation access (SDG 6).

Designed and managed by GETF, RAIN addressed specific community needs and created long-lasting impact through WASH and other water-based activities by deploying a network of over 350 public, private, and civil society partners for collective action. Implementing projects in nearly every African country, RAIN became one of the continent’s most impactful community water initiatives.


By 2020, RAIN surpassed its goal by improving the lives of over 7 million people across 4,250 at-risk countries:

  • Served more than 1,200 schools and 60 clinics
  • Empowered over 480,000 women
  • Strengthened 14 water utilities across 17 cities
  • Contributed to strengthening the health of 8 watersheds through nature-based solutions
  • Returned 12BN liters to nature and communities
  • Provided 350,000 people with COVID-19 prevention supplies
