Bringing lifelong access to safe drinking water

Over the last 15 years, 1001fontaines has built evidence of our model’s sustainability and impact, leveraging safe drinking water to improve the lives of vulnerable populations.

Water is the source of life

Today, 1 in 3 people lacks access to safe drinking water.
This situation generates a vicious circle that 1001fontaines transforms into a virtuous one.
