Access to clean drinking water

Objectives:

The two-year project aims to install two production stations for drinking water in two villages in the north-eastern region of Madagascar, enabling 4,000 people to access clean drinking water daily and to improve their health. Two small drinking water production stations will be constructed and managed by local operators in charge of producing and selling the water at a very low price(1 euro cent/l). Each operator will be trained and mentored until they reach break-even. They then pay a royalty of 20% of their turnover to a local platform which ensures the quality and sustainability of the service (regular monitoring of water quality, support in case of technical problems, etc.).This model of social entrepreneurship, which has already been proven successful, will ensure the sustainability of the project while ensuring local autonomous development.
