The Rainmaker Enterprise
From Intern to CEO, James Thuch Madhier used his time as the Dahdaleh Institute's inaugural Global Health and Humanitarianism Intern to build up The Rainmaker Enterprise.
The Dahdaleh Institute provides strategic support to The Rainmaker Enterprise, a non-profit social enterprise that seeks to transform lives in South Sudan, and later in other conflict-affected regions. Using solar-powered water infrastructure, The Rainmaker Enterprise enhances health by increasing the availability of potable water, enhancing food security & supporting community self-sufficiency.
