Since 2002, Excellent Development have supported the construction of more than 890 sand dams across two continents and their dryland areas. The dams contribute by improving a range of health and practical challenges people living in these areas face daily. From providing a long-term source of clean water and helping to improve food security for an entire community, decreasing the hours women, many whom are pregnant, must walk in unbearable heat to collect water, and empowering the next generation by saving school children on average 5 hours a day due to not being required to take time out of their learning to collect water. The charity believes that by providing the necessary training and equipment, it presents the community the opportunity to transform and sustain their own lives. The Shanly Foundation are excited to hear that our contribution will go towards the construction of a specific sand dam in South-East Kenya.
