Sand and Sub-Surface Dams: transferring water technologies from Kenya to Sudan
SOS Sahel UK requests a £44,000 contribution towards a one year training and exchange programme that will result in the construction of three sand or subsurface dams in Kordofan, Sudan. This grant will help fund an exchange visit to Kenya for community representatives to see the technology in action, training workshops in Sudan using skills and expertise from Kenya and all the materials needed for the construction of the dams. The purpose of this new water project is to transfer a proven effective water technology from Kenya to Sudan to increase the amount of water available and lengthen the time it is accessible in the dry season, thereby improving the livelihoods of nomadic and settled communities in Kordofan.
