Electriciens sans frontières
Electriciens sans frontières is a French international NGO and registered charity.
Since 1986 it has been leading projects designed to give access to electricity and water for the poorest people to improve their living conditions by making access to electricity a lever for human and economic development.
1,200 volunteers spread throughout France mobilize their time and life skills for the NGO’s projects.
The NGO prioritizes the electrification of public services to make access to electricity a first step towards development.
Training local actors and creating income-generating activities ensure the sustainability of the NGO’s projects.
Over 80% of the NGO’s projects use renewable energy, either partially or totally.
The infrastructure of the village of Sissili has neither electricity nor an adequate water supply. The demand for water and electricity is part of the "1,000 vegetable gardens in Africa" project initiated by the Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity with the Terra Madre and Noi con Voi associations that helped create a gardening school to improve the nutritional quality of the midday meal served to the 425 students in the village.Voir le projet
