Music to your ears
By downloading just one song, you can help The Coca‑Cola Africa Foundation improve water access and sanitation in Africa
Music stars have released an inspiring song to raise funds for RAIN, our Replenish Africa Initiative set up by The Coca‑Cola Africa Foundation. Through special RAIN projects such as this and Water for Schools, Coca‑Cola hopes to bring clean water and sanitation to at least two million Africans by 2015.
The track called ‘Kenya’ features guest musicians Solange Knowles (Beyoncé’s younger sister) and Twin Shadow, with video footage of Kenya by acclaimed director Natalie Johns, who had travelled to the rural areas of the country with the Coca‑Cola Africa Foundation to learn about the issues and solutions around access to water and sanitation.
Donate to download
To download the song and video, head over to the Music for RAIN website and choose the amount you'd like to donate.
Each ‘Kenya’ download brings us closer to our fundraising target of $10,000 (approx. £6,227). The money will be spent on three projects hand-picked by the music artists:
- Building a girls’ lavatory at a school in Rwanda
- Installing a rainwater harvesting roof at a school in Uganda
- Supplying water-carrying containers to families in Cameroon
Did you know? Since its establishment in 2001, the Coca‑Cola Africa Foundation has helped over a million people in over 30 countries across Africa
According to William Asiko, Director of the Coca‑Cola Africa Foundation: "We realise that no one organisation can solve the problem of access to water and sanitation across Africa. With RAIN we hope to start a social movement and galvanise people into action."
