FIELDS OF ACTION
Acting in any situation
The NGO meets the needs of distressed populations, whether they have been left out of development movements, or have been hit by a natural disaster or conflict.
Acting for human and economic development of the poorest by providing them with access to electricity and water
Helping disaster victims and other NGOs in emergency humanitarian disasters.
Putting our expertise in providing access to electricity and water at the service of international solidarity actors.
Meeting basic needs
Because it crosses so many spheres of human activity, access to electricity helps address food, education, health, security, social, economic and environmental issues. .
Signing up for the long term
Our actions on the ground are based on guiding principles based on our expertise and our experience since 1986. These principles guarantee the smooth running of projects and ensure that they fully and sustainably meet the needs expressed by local populations.
Going where others don’t
Because 80% of people without sustainable access to electricity are located in rural areas, the NGO operates primarily in rural areas remote from national electricity grids.
Starting from locally expressed needs
Projects are based on local social and economic concerns in order to provide efficient solutions tailored to the needs of the locality.
Making maximum use of renewable resources
Meeting energy efficiency criteria
Prioritizing community structures
Involve local populations
Responding to the needs of other actors
Other NGOs can apply to Electriciens sans frontières to support them in those aspects of their projects involving access to electricity and water. Equally for local authorities as part of their decentralized cooperation activities.
In November 2013, typhoon Haiyan devastated the Philippine archipelago. Many houses were destroyed. Areas considered to be at risk were abandoned by the inhabitants. To relocate these people, in 2015, the French Red Cross undertook the construction of a village north of the island of Cebu in the municipalities of Daanbantayan and Bogo. The main objective is to strengthen the resilience of these populations to natural disasters.Voir le projet
