Excellent Development is a charity that enables communities in Africa to transform their environment sustainably and improve water supplies, food production, health and incomes. Excellent Development does this by the building of sand dams, the terracing of adjoining land and the planting of indigenous and medicinal trees. Excellent Development is also working to enhance development education in the UK and worldwide through the promotion of sustainable development and the mitigation of climate change.
Excellent Development's projects help alleviate poverty in rural south eastern Kenya by conserving soil and water, thus improving the environment sustainably, and enhancing its capacity to support rural livelihoods. Excellent Development's key strategies are building sand dams, terracing land, planting trees and sustainable agriculture.
