Give a Dam and
Excellent Development offers a range of expeditions where you can get involved in building a sand dam.
It's hard work - but there's a job to suit every ability.
Working closely with rural communities, you will help transform lives.
Our next expedition dates are:
17 - 23 September 2017
What better way to learn about the miracle of sand dams than to go and build one yourself?
What and where?
On an expedition with Excellent Development, you’ll stay in a small Kenyan town, learn about people's daily life, their challenges and hopes. You’ll join them in building a sand dam and see for yourself just how it’s done and what it means. It’s hard work – there's no doubt about it - but there’s a job to suit every ability. Your efforts will be rewarded with an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life and make a real difference for a rural community in Kenya.
Most travellers to Kenya don't get the chance to take part in a trip like this. So, whether you're looking for a gap year challenge, a break with a difference, a different way to donate, or a way to get your company involved - an expedition could be just the thing for you.

There are two different ways you can join an expedition: You can either join our annual sand dam expedition (see dates above), or talk to us about creating a bespoke expedition organised just for your group.
