« More than 900 million people around the world living in rural areas do not have access to safe drinking water. Using sand filtration and solar-powered water purification technology, 1001 fontaines provides clean, affordable drinking water to over 50,000 people at a price of US $0.01 per litre. To encourage local ownership, village entrepreneurs are trained to sell and distribute the water as well as maintain the water production site. » Lo Chay, 1001 Fontaines pour demain (Cambodia) awarded by the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship.

Fort de ce constat, RSF a financé l’approvisionnement en eau de boisson pour 5 000 élèves pendant un an au Cambodge avec l’appui de son partenaire local, l’association 1001 Fontaines pour demain.
