Sand dams provide safe water for life and the opportunity to grow enough food to eat, store and sell. Sand dams empower communities, putting their future firmly in their own hands.

Over 40% of the earth’s surface consists of drylands (hyper-arid, arid,semi-arid and dry sub-humid areas with concentrated periods of seasonal rainfall). These drylands which cover large areas of Africa and Asia are home to around 2.3 billion people, mostly living in rural poverty trying to eke out a living in a tough climate, typically spending up to 11 hours a day fetching water.
