'Walking on Water' 6 min documentary
This short version of our 30 minute documentary demonstrates how soil and water conservation are key to helping communities develop in drylands.
In rural Kenya, basic needs are a daily struggle.
Water, soil and trees are the three things that need to be conserved in order to make a difference to people's lives.
Sand dams are the cheapest method of rainwater conservation in drylands. They keep clean water close to people's homes and enable communities to invest in sustainable land management practices, such as terracing their land and planting trees.
This film demonstrates how soil and water conservation are key to helping communities develop in drylands.
The skill we are getting from Excellent Development is more important than the help we can be given. When our mind is filled with a skill then we will do it for ourselves.
