Solution

Today, 2 billion people in the world still have no access to drinking water. The targets set by the UN for 2030 for universal access to drinking water seem unattainable, especially for people living in rural, often isolated areas. Investing in innovative, effective and sustainable solutions such as 1001fontaines is the only way to achieve SDG 6.

1001fontaines develops and deploys sustainable solutions for access to drinking water for vulnerable populations. 1001fontaines' model breaks the circle of poverty on a village scale: the association creates small drinking water production stations (water kiosks) in rural villages in developing countries, then trains local entrepreneurs to manage them. They then resell the water at less than 2 cents per liter, a price recommended by the WHO, which enables even the most vulnerable households to obtain drinking water.

A new project for 1001fontaines!
Dear Captains,
 
2 months have passed since our last news and we're delighted to share some 1001fontaines news and achievements with you! We have some very big news that wouldn't have been possible without you!"

We're proud to announce that on March 20, 2024, two days before World Water Day, we launched a clean water access project in Bangladesh, in partnership with local organization Uttaran!"
We aim to become the drinking water solution of choice for vulnerable populations in 5 countries by 2030. Each of your difts brings us a little closer to our goal! 

Thank you for your support, which enables us to provide quality drinking water for all 💙

Journée Mondiale de l'Eau
Chers mécènes Captain Cause, 

La Journée mondiale de l'eau, célébrée chaque année le 22 mars, est une initiative des Nations Unies qui met en lumière l'importance de l'eau potable et encourage l'action pour résoudre la crise mondiale de l'eau. 
Coordonnée par ONU-Eau et dirigée par des membres et partenaires mandatés, elle vise notamment à soutenir la réalisation de l'Objectif de développement durable 6, qui vise à garantir l'accès à l'eau et à l'assainissement pour tous d'ici 2030.

Depuis 20 ans, grâce au soutien de nos mécènes et partenaires, 1001fontaines élabore et déploie des solutions pour permettre l’accès à l’eau potable aux populations vulnérables. La qualité de l’eau est garantie de la production jusqu’au point de consommation et son prix est abordable, rendant le service accessible à tous et toutes : 
  • 💧 Au Cambodge, 330 entrepreneurs 1001fontaines fournissent aujourd'hui une eau potable conforme aux normes de l'OMS, atteignant ainsi plus d'un million de consommateurs dans les zones rurales.
  • 💧 A Madagascar, 1001fontaines est présente en zone urbaine où une usine de production d'eau potable dessert des points de vente décentralisés, au plus près des foyers des populations vulnérables.

En ce jour si spécial, toute notre équipe vous remercie chaleureusement pour votre soutien 💙

Recent result

1001fontaines has successfully demonstrated that decentralized rural drinking water services can cover a country and be financially viable. The first program, in Cambodia, today gives ¼ of the population access to 100% autonomous services.

Goal

By opening a water kiosk, 3,000 villagers benefit from sustainable access to drinking water, and 1,000 children with the "Water In School" program delivering free drinking water to schools.

The money will be used for

- Financing the construction of Water Kiosks in rural Cambodia;
- Training a local entrepreneur to manage a Water Kiosk;
- Improving the health of thousands of people through access to safe drinking water;
- Providing free drinking water in schools around Water Kiosks.
