Rootworks has joined hands with ARAHA in partnership to raise awareness and funds for the importance of building sand dams in the Horn of Africa region.
Sand dams are the most cost-effective solution to the ongoing cycle of drought in the Horn of Africa region. Sand Dams capture millions of liters of rainwater and store it underground. One Sand Dam can provide up to 1000 people with drinking water for up to a year without rainfall.
In addition, sad dams revitalized the surrounding land, regenerating grassland, crops, and helping to increase soil fertility.
Together with ARAHA, Rootworks will build sand dams across the Horn of Africa and empower thousands of people.
