Each year, the Foundation focuses on an important theme. In 2014, the Foundation will favour again projects with an entrepreneurial approach.

These projects will aim for a sustainable local development, through the creation of micro-enterprises/cooperatives with a social approach, protecting the environment, and creating jobs. If suitable, these projects will also plan financing solutions, in particular through micro-credit (preferably by partnering with MFI’s), always focusing on sustainability and replication of the project model.

This year, the Programme Fund applies to the Four intervention sectors listed below, whereas the Small Grants Fund is solely open to Conservation of threatened animal species projects.

Refering to the four intervention sectors for the Programme Fund, examples of approaches can be the following:

Sustainable Agriculture and Fishing
Production, transformation, and marketing of products by community groups/cooperatives with sustainable techniques in the agriculture area : agro-ecology, biological agriculture, conservation agriculture, agroforestry, non timber forest products, giving value to indigenous seeds and varieties… and in fishing : sustainable aquaculture and fishing techniques ;

Renewable Energies

Production and marketing of solar lightning, decentralised rural electrification, production and marketing of local renewable energy : solar, wind, micro-hydraulic, biogaz, production and marketing of ecological or fuel efficient heating systems (stoves, ovens)…

Training and marketing of ecological and sustainable habitats, and/or exploitation, transformation, manufacturing and marketing of products and equipments obtained in a sustainable way from local materials, accessible to all, and in particular to the poorest,...

Biodiversity Conservation

Sustainable management of ecosystems, and animal and plant species requiring protection : certification, responsible tourism, sustainable agriculture and handicraft, other sustainable income generating activities…

All projects relying on marketing activities will have studied in depth and optimised the planned business model : distribution channels, demand, cost and sales price, local, national, or international marketing, and the conditions to meet to achieve sustainability : level of investment, sales volumes and customer base, planning of repair and maintenance solutions and costs, etc.
