What we do


The Dakhleh Oasis Trust was formed in 1999 and is a UK registered charity. Its primary role is to raise funds for the continuation of study within the Dakhleh Oasis Project.


Its declared aim is to advance understanding of the history of the environment and cultural evolution throughout the Quaternary Period in the eastern Sahara and particularly in the Dakhleh Oasis in the Western Desert of Egypt. At present the trustees believe that they can best achieve this aim by supporting the work of the Dakhleh Oasis Project whose current activities and plans are described in this website.
