Excellent Development supports farmers in Africa to gain access to clean water and grow enough food to eat and sell by teaching them improved soil and water conservation and farming techniques, while also building innovative sand dams that give access to clean water all year round.

The MCFEA began its partnership with Excellent in 2010 by funding a project to construct numerous sand dams in south east Kenya and thereby provide access to clean water and enhanced food security for local communities. The programme also involves the digging of terraces to conserve soil and water, the planting of trees, and training on sustainable farming activities to help enable optimum use of sand dams.
