Background
“TeukSaat 1001” is a Cambodian non-governmental organization created as an offshoot of safe drinking water supply project in rural area in partnership with the French NGO “1001 fontaines pour demain”. The first stage of the initiative started in 2005, in North West Cambodia, and has achieved to date the implementation of 50 operating sites in Battambang, BanteayMeanchey and Siem Reap provinces. These sites provide more than 50,000 people daily with safe drinking water. “TeukSaat 1001” is committed to act as a service platform for all production sites of safe water and as a project manager to set-up new safe water production sites.

Mission
The mission of “1001 fontaines” is to implement sustainable improvement in the health of people living in isolated communities. The proposed objective of our non-profit association is to empower rural communities by enabling them to produce and guarantee quality of drinking water at an affordable price, based on a social enterprise business model, which ensures that they are self-sufficient and reach the largest number of beneficiaries.

Main activity
The “1001 fontaines” solution uses water that is available locally - surface water from swamps, rivers, ponds- and purifies for bacteria contamination (using ultraviolet rays), at very low cost, in order to eliminate a high percentage of therisks of disease, while in parallel providing on-site education programs on hygiene to raise awareness. The purified water is sold at a fixed price of USD 0.01 per litre and distribution is done using 20 litres containers, which are disinfected, closed and sealed, thereby guaranteeing the quality for the end-consumer.
The management of the operating site and distribution to families and schools is undertaken by an entrepreneur recruited within the village and trained through our “Social Entrepreneur Academy”. This approach, combined with the support of the local platforms, ensures that the solution is sustainable and that villagers receive a quality service.
The local NGO acts as a service platform to fulfill the needs of entrepreneurs located in villages: supply chain of consumables, water quality control, technical assistance and control, business consultancy. In exchange of those services the entrepreneurs pay monthly fees to the platform.
