In June 2023, Sand Dams Worldwide and a group of volunteers from Jersey, as part of the Jersey Overseas Aid Community Works Project 2023, teamed up to support community members from 'Ngui A' self-help group in southeast Kenya to build a sand dam. The sand dam will go on to provide the community with a local, lifelong supply of clean water, transforming lives and land for generations to come.

Hear below their thoughts and highlights, along with community members from the self-help group, and staff from our partners in southeast Kenya, the Africa Sand Dam Foundation (ASDF):
