About 1001fontaines Vietnam

1001fontaines, is an NGO that is pioneering an innovative response to the problem of safe drinking water. It provides small decentralized infrastructures of water treatment - or water kiosks - to areas still lacking access to safe water. Each kiosk is run by an entrepreneur who is recruited and trained to manage its small local social enterprise. Water entrepreneurs are making their kiosk sustainable through the sales of 20-liter jugs at an affordable price. In 14 years, 1001fontaines set-up 200 water kiosks in Cambodia and Madagascar reaching 500,000 beneficiaries.

Starting in July 2018, 1001fontaines is launching a pilot project in Vietnam in order to test the local market through the upgrade of 5 existing small-scale water kiosks in the Mekong Delta area, Vinh Long Province. The objective is to learn from this experimentation and to design the best model for acceleration in 2020. The end-game is to reach 500,000 beneficiaries over the next 5 years.
