Water Kiosks
deployed in rural Cambodia, providing access to drinking water for vulnerable populations


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.

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.
