  • The Makueni Food and Water Security Programme
    • The programme provided direct help to two small villages and a primary school in Kenya
    • The programme included:
      • Improved water supply by building sand dams for each village
      • Providing a reliable source of water for crops and livestock
      • A training programme to support local farmers
      • Growing trees to reduce soil erosion
    • Small dams store water in the ground, filtering and cleaning the rainwater as it soaks into the soil. They are cost-effective and sustainable
    • How was the project successful?
      • Crop yields and food security have increased
      • Water-borne diseases have been reduced
      • Less time is wasted getting water
