"Committed to the responsible and sustainable development of Africa
through profitable business"
WHAT IS THE AFRICAN RAIN INITIATIVE?
The African Rain Initiative seeks to create a business platform where African projects of excellence are matched with appropriate capital and execution skills such that the outcome is beneficial to the host country and people and profitable to the project promoters, implementers and capital providers.
African Rain wishes to generate above average returns for itself, its partners and stakeholders employing a profitable, responsible and sustainable model. We believe that the unilateral provision of aid model has been comprehensively discredited as a sustainable means of upliftment in Africa.
The “Aid model” generally leaves the country poorer by enriching the wrong people, stifling self-initiative and encouraging a dependent mentality. Conversely our model provides a viable alternative without compromising our profit motive. Consequently African Rain is focused on projects that are capable of making a profit for itself, its project promoters and investors whilst being of on-going value to the host country and encouraging local participation and sustainability.
