Replenish Africa Initiative
In response to the severe water challenges faced by the nearly 300 million Africans living without access to clean water, TCCAF introduced the Replenish Africa Initiative (RAIN) in 2009. RAIN recognizes the water projects that TCCC and its bottling partners have already supported on the continent (since 2005) and highlights TCCC’s new investment of US$30-million over six years (2010 to 2015) to water projects in Africa. RAIN aims to provide over 2 million people in Africa with access to clean water by the end of 2015. RAIN is TCCC’s contribution to helping Africa achieve the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals on clean water and sanitation access. TCCAF will leverage this US$30-million investment and aims to attract dollar-for-dollar match funding through 2015.
