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.
Electriciens sans frontières was asked by the city of Montreuil, twinned with the Palestinian village of Beit Sira, to carry out an expert study on the public lighting network of the village. Electriciens sans frontières proposed two complementary solutions that are part of a sustainable approach: optimizing the functioning of existing street lights, in particular by reducing the total power of installed bulbs and installing a solar field (solar panels) on the roof terrace of the town hall that enables produced the day to be injected into the network that will offset the consumption of street lights at night. The work then continued with the construction of solar fields on two schools and an community building.Voir le projet
