Since 2004, 1001fontaines has been a leading pioneer of the water kiosk model, a social business solution able durably to provide a unique combination of three characteristics: (i) water quality at WHO standards; (ii) affordability thanks to a decentralized approach; and (iii) sustainability through a market-based model supported by franchise.

We set up small water production units, called water kiosks, directly in the target areas. Water is purified using a low-cost technology, then bottled and home-delivered at an affordable price.

To ensure sustainability, we hire and train an entrepreneur, who makes a living by managing the water kiosk. We also support the creation of a social business in each country. These entities are responsible for developing new water kiosks, and supporting the active ones through a franchise model. Entrepreneurs pay a fixed percentage of their turnover in exchange for a set of services guaranteeing their viability. Thanks to the fees, the franchise services become self-funded and can run without any need for external financial support.
