Annual Report & Accounts 2012/13

We are delighted to publish our Annual Report & Accounts 2012/13 - demonstrating our impacts during the year as well as outlining our strategic direction for the future. We have been supporting rural dryland communities for ten years. None of this would be possible without the extraordinary support of our generous donors; voluntary public speakers, Rotarians and Trustees; our dedicated executive team, and our operational partners.  

The potential of sand dams is huge. We hope this Annual Report reflects the impact of our donors and supporters investment and that we will inspire their continued invaluable support. 

This is Excellent

Our supporters are creating hope and opportunity for dryland families. Nothing we do would be possible without them. In this, the first edition of our new brochure, produced entirely in-house to reduce costs, we share the impacts of their support for some of the world's poorest people, and celebrate the fantastic ways people get involved to make it all happen. Thank you!

The Excellent Development Sand Dam Manual

The Excellent Development Sand Dam Manual is a practical guide for the siting, design, construction and management of sand dams. It is an invaluable resource for anyone who wants to implement sand dams. But, above all, it demystifies san dam technology - making it accessible to a wide range of people and organisations in drylands around the world. Order a free copy of the sand dam manual here.
