Sand Dams Worldwide

Sand Dams Worldwide (formerly Excellent Development) is a registered charitable company that supports some of the world’s poorest people to transform their own lives through water and soil conservation in drylands. We do this in three ways:

  • By working with local partners, we support rural communities to gain access to clean water close to their homes and to invest in sustainable agriculture.
  • By pioneering sand dams, we promote and support the application of sand dam technology by key stakeholders in drylands.
  • By influencing and educating those who can help achieve our vision including – but not limited to – policy makers, international NGOs, government departments and civil engineering firms.
