Sand dam


Sand dams are a simple yet highly effective way to provide clean water for an entire community. A concrete wall is built across a seasonal riverbed, and sand fills in behind it—trapping rainwater. An average sand dam can store millions of gallons of water for years, and provide water for drinking and/or irrigation even when droughts occur. Your gift of necessary tools and equipment could help build a dam.

Printable certificate of gift will be emailed with your order.
