Film explaining how sand dams work and their potential impact in the world's drylands
Sand dam projects can play a key role in alleviating water shortages in rural communities, but they can also do so much more. Speaking with a member of the Gurdo community in Ethiopia, we hear about how achieving a reliable water source is helping people to thrive and develop their livelihoods without the burdens of water scarcity.
Without a reliable source of clean water, people living in dryland communities often find themselves lacking the opportunities they want in life. Speaking with two members of the Uvilani Central self-help group, we learn how a sand dam project has opened up new possibilities for locals in southeast Kenya.
Programmes Officer, Callum Sheehan, looks at various sand dam success stories as Sand Dams Worldwide reaches the milestone of enabling 1,000 sand dams in drylands.
