Donate now to Rain for the Sahel and Sahara


Rain for the Sahel and Sahara partners with rural and nomadic desert people of West Africa to enable enduring livelihoods through access to education.

What RAIN Believes In

RAIN values mutual respect - the giving and sharing of knowledge, skills and resources between RAIN and our stakeholders - our partner communities in West Africa.  Basic education and secure livelihoods are critical to accessing the world of possibility for nomadic and rural peoples and their families.  RAIN believes in the universally accepted values of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
