electriciens sans Frontières
Electriciens sans frontières, French international NGO and registered charity, has been fighting since 1986 against inequalities of access to electricity and water throughout the world. With the support of our 1300 volunteers and through partnerships with local actors and using renewable energies, we make access to electricity a lever for human and economic development.
The Energy of Development
Our objective is to improve the living conditions of the poorest populations, making electricity and water access a lever for economic and human development.
We build our projects systematically associating these levers for development and environmental stakes! Our 6 development levers are: access to quality water, health, education, security and people’s social life, training and economic development.
We use renewable energies to reduce energy poverty to fight against climate change and to promote the energy transition.
Voluntary and committed, in France or anywhere around the world, they are many today who write the humanitarian and solidarity history of our association.
SOCIAL MODEL AND SUSTAINABILITY
We prioritise collective services, we train local stakeholders and we participate to the creation of income generating activities to ensure the sustainability of our projects.
More than 95 % of our projects use renewable energies. Our action is structured around two aspects: the attenuation and the adaptation.
