1001 Fontaines pour demain

Sector of activity: Civil society/NGO

"1001 fontaines pour demain" is a non-profit organization acting in the domain of drinking water. Its initiative is specifically oriented towards small rural communities (which generally fall outside the gambit of other “access to drinking water” projects). It aims at improving these populations’ health by allowing them to meet, in a sustainable manner, their drinking water needs, by themselves and without any specific infrastructure or expertise.
"1001 fontaines pour demain" concept is to create, in every village, a surface-water purification capability (based on UV treatment powered by solar energy) operated by a village family as a micro-business (thus ensuring the production facility sustainability). Water is purified, bottled and made available to the fellow villagers for a price of 0,01 US $ per litre.
This approach has been experienced first in Cambodia where 20 sites are currently operating (serving approximately 20,000 customers). The current deployment project (2008-2010) involves fifty new operating sites, still in Cambodia, thus enabling an additional 60,000 persons to drink water good for their health instead of water making them sick. An experimental project is also currently conducted in Madagascar.

PKL

Sector of activity: Food

PKL for Protéin Kissèe-La – i.e. protein coming from grain in the Mandingo language, was created in 1994, in Ivory Coast with a double objective: i) to provide West African families a fortified infant cereal made of soya beans, with high nutritional value and good quality standards, affordable to a great portion of the population. ii) bring to farmers a reliable market outlet for their locally cultivated products.
PKL's vision is that economic performance has a close link with people's welfare. PKL aspires to contribute as much as possible to the development of part of Africa by utilizing its various agricultural resources and human capacities. PKL's mission is to struggle malnutrition by offering protein-enriched fortified foods, to reduce rural poverty through the promotion of local food crops and to develop a local, profitable and competitive company complying with international standards of management rules and quality. The company follows a sustainable development policy.
PKL's owners perceived the existence of a considerable market for local infant cereals, both in terms of consumer demand and potential product supply. The target included families with weak purchasing power to buy the imported products available on the market. Local production in the early 1990s was limited to traditional flours with low nutritional value, and even sometimes a low hygienic quality, requiring a long and costly cooking time.
PKL has gradually grown by improving its soybean processing methods, then by adding other local agricultural ingredients, such as maize and rice, to its products and finally by adding essential vitamins and minerals. The Quality Policy instituted at PKL since 1999 is constant and attested by the certifications by AFAQ to ISO 9001 and by HACCP standards of quality.
In 1998 the infant cereal FARINOR was put on the market with a still undeniable success. FARINOR is specially enriched to fill African babies’ common deficiencies in vitamins and minerals.
The creation and marketing of FARINOR were long and difficult, but were absolutely exciting and unforgettable stages of the firm life. Some keys allowed to take up major challenges and to get over important obstacles: − taking consciousness that malnutrition is one of the causes of underdevelopment of our countries; − having observation of local uses and customs, having creativity then taking into consideration its to create a fortified product our people can easily accept; − research of knowledge where it is and work with the scientists.

1001 Fontaines pour demain

Sector of activity: Civil society/NGO

"1001 fontaines pour demain" is a non-profit organization acting in the domain of drinking water. Its initiative is specifically oriented towards small rural communities (which generally fall outside the gambit of other “access to drinking water” projects). It aims at improving these populations’ health by allowing them to meet, in a sustainable manner, their drinking water needs, by themselves and without any specific infrastructure or expertise.
"1001 fontaines pour demain" concept is to create, in every village, a surface-water purification capability (based on UV treatment powered by solar energy) operated by a village family as a micro-business (thus ensuring the production facility sustainability). Water is purified, bottled and made available to the fellow villagers for a price of 0,01 US $ per litre.
This approach has been experienced first in Cambodia where 20 sites are currently operating (serving approximately 20,000 customers). The current deployment project (2008-2010) involves fifty new operating sites, still in Cambodia, thus enabling an additional 60,000 persons to drink water good for their health instead of water making them sick. An experimental project is also currently conducted in Madagascar.
