I'm Adrien and I'm about to start the ADVENTURE of my dreams with 1001FONTAINES !
29th of May : At the end of my Master's degree in "Entrepreneurship And Innovation in Sustainable Energy" at the University of Queensland in Australia, I will bicycle 2,500 km on the Australian west coast from Perth to Broome with a tent, a trailer and a bike. The aim of this challenge is to give access to drinkable water for 2,500 kids in CAMBODIA !
I'm not doing this alone ! We are going to do it TOGETHER to help those who need it the most !
Today, 1 person out of 4 is deprived of drinking water in the world, that is more than 2 billion people. Water that is unfit for consumption kills more than 2 million people every year, mainly children.
MY GOAL : to fund access to clean water for 2,500 SCHOOL CHILDREN IN CAMBODIA!
AMAZING! The initial goal has been achieved in 6 weeks!! And it's all thanks to you, a HUGE THANK YOU!
Therefore, I have increased my goal to 3,000 school children!
And... A gigantic surpise, because 6 hours later, WE WERE ALREADY AT 3,125 SCHOOL CHILDREN! A significant achievement reached and exceeded!
BUT IT'S NOT OVER YET! Now my goal : to fund access to clean water for 5,000 CAMBODIAN SCHOOL CHILDREN!
HOW WILL WE REACH IT ?
Raise 2€ for each km cycled !
Each 2€ donation will allow a school child to have access to clean water for a whole year in Cambodia!
2,500 KM CYCLED = 10,000€ = 5,000 KIDS !
WHO IS 1001FONTAINES ?
For almost 20 years, 1001fontaines has been developing and deploying sustainable solutions for access to drinking water for vulnerable populations.
Today, 1001fontaines allows 1 million beneficiaries to have a sustainable access to drinking water in Cambodia, Madagascar, Vietnam and Myanmar.
HOW DO THEY DO ?
IN 5 STEPS :
1- Locally available surface water is collected from ponds, rivers, etc.
2- The collected water is then decanted, filtered and purified using an ultraviolet sterilization technique (100% of the energy comes from solar panels installed on the roof of the infrastructure).
3- The purified water is then packaged in 20 L bottles and delivered to families and schools!
4- The bottles are then recovered to be cleaned and used again to limit the plastic footprint!
5- The quality of the water is controlled every month and conforms to the standards of the World Health Organization!
WHO IS FINANCING MY PROJECT?
ME ! None of your donations will contribute to the logistic and material part of the project, I have been working in parallel with my Master's degree to finance all the equipment! (bike, trailer, solar panel, batteries...and a drone to film all this)!
I will share with you all my adventure on my social networks with my phone and my drone (my experience during 2 months cycling, the landscapes, the encounters...) Come and join me , we will have a good laugh !
