Why we love it?

Rising living standards, reduced illness, lower school absenteeism, lower CO2 emissions and, quite simply, access to the most vital resource of all: it's hard to think of a more positive impact on Cambodia's underprivileged populations than 1001fontaines!

Solution

The 1001fontaines model breaks the circle of poverty at village level: 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.

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 💙
Journée Mondiale de l'Eau
Over a million lives transformed thanks to you!
Dear patrons, 

After reaching one million beneficiaries in all our countries of intervention in March, we closed 2023 in style by reaching one million beneficiaries in Cambodia, our first country of intervention.
💧A total of 231 million liters of drinking water were thus produced and distributed in 2023 in Cambodia, Vietnam and Madagascar by 1001fontaines.

All our teams would like to express their gratitude for your invaluable support. Each of your difts has enabled us to provide lifelong access to drinking water for vulnerable populations. 

We're counting on your support to extend our impact to even more beneficiaries in 2024!

💙 1001 mercis 💙 
Over a million lives transformed thanks to you!
