1001 Fontaines Decription/Background
To give poor people living in remote areas an opportunity to produce safe drinking water locally and sustainably, thereby improving their health and developing an economic activity: that is the purpose of 1001 fontaines.

1001 fontaines is a nonprofit organization, which has been engaged since 2005 in Cambodia, where it has developed an en-to-end project including the installation of small water treatment facilities run by village operators, as well as targeted support to build entrepreneurial capacities, achieve auto-financing and raise communities’ awareness of water issues.  Because children are the most vulnerable to water-borne diseases, the project also includes the supply of safe drinking water to primary schools in every target commune, free of charge.

To date, 130 rural communes have been equipped with their own safe water production facility, enabling more than 250 000 people to drinking purified water every day.  The technology used involves micro-filtration and UV disinfection and relies on solar energy.

1001 fontaines also operates in Madagascar since 2008 as well as in India since 2013. See more information on

Context and Partnership perspectives in Cambodia
1001Fontaines and Teuk Saat 1001 ambition in the long term is to install 250 water treatment plant in the 250 Communes of Cambodia by the end of 2016 which ultimately serve between 0,5 to 1 million villagers – while today 7 million of Cambodian people living in rural areas don’t have any access to drinkable water. Approximately 1,000 full-time jobs will be created out of this program.

Actually, 1001 fontaines’s projects in Cambodia are implemented in partnership with a local organization, « Teuk Saat 1001 », of which the director is also a co-founder of 1001 fontaines. The local team has 45 staffs and is in charge of running the deployment of the initiative in about 15 provinces of Cambodia, with 1001 fontaines’ support.

The projects are conducted in the framework of a cooperative agreement with the Ministry of Rural Development of Cambodia, and are supported by several financial and operational partnerships with international organizations such as UNICEF, Oxfam GB, World Vision, etc.

1001 fontaines’ objective is to achieve a scaling-up phase in the next 4 years, through reaching 250 water stations and a total of more than 500,000 beneficiaries in Cambodia.

In order to lay the ground for this deployment and strengthen the autonomy of operations in Cambodia, 1001 fontaines and Teuk Saat wish to develop local funding resources through:
