An innovative approach
In 2008, Eau et Vie started its projects with an idea which could seem very ambitious: to install affordable running water in each household of targeted slums. 6 years later, the innovative approach of Eau et Vie is recognized in the Philippines, Bangladesh and will start soon in Ivory Coast.
The intervention scheme of Eau et Vie is based on social entrepreneurship and micro-credit methodology, applied to water supply and solid waste management in urban areas.
Concurently, the NGO implements activities which are mandatory for the improvement of the living conditions on a long-term perspective. Indeed hygiene promotion, fire-fighting and sanitation are handled by the NGO.
In Bangladesh, the social business is Shobar Jonno Pani (SJP) and the NGO is Water and Life Bangladesh (W&L).
