Project duration: The Fondation considers applications from both once-only projects and multi-year projects. It does however only support associations, organizations or institutions having proven the relevance of their action and the durability of their results.

Eligible organization: As below

Eligibility: The Fondation supports projects proposed by project initiators with an associative legal status and which have been legally established for at least one year prior to the date of the submission of the project application.

The Fondation does not support projects developed by individuals.

The Fondation attaches a great deal of importance to how actions are relayed on the site of intervention and gives priority to applicants which possess local divisions or which report a very close partnership with a local structure.

Similarly, particular attention will be paid to:
– The clearly identified demand and the determination of the populations concerned to contribute towards maintaining the service or activity to be created,
– Whether or not the project is of general interest,
– The commitment and support shown towards the project by local stakeholders: user associations, local resident communities, local authorities etc.
– The correspondence of the project with the national or regional policies adopted in the domain considered,
– Coherency with the other projects implemented on the same theme in the same geographical zone; for access to essential service projects: resource preservation, integrated management of the receiving environment, collection and treatment management…
– The search for efficiency and the sustainable improvement in the living conditions of populations as part of a development process which respects the environment,
– The search for the sustainability of actions thanks to the relevance of the prior assessment designed to measure the impacts of the project’s achievements
– Impact measuring thanks to indicators and assessment mechanisms based on transparency, in conjunction – where possible – with the authorities in the countries concerned,
– The introduction of post-project monitoring,
– And, particularly for projects relating to access to essential services, the existence of training to improve and manage services, personnel training and awareness-raising actions among local populations with respect to health and hygiene.

Eligible Country: For access to essential service projects, the Fondation supports projects implemented in developing countries. It does not intervene in so-called developed countries within the context of the domain considered. The Fondation is looking to focus its actions on problems encountered in urban and peri-urban areas: projects meeting this criterion will be studied as a matter of priority. However, projects in rural settings will not be disregarded if they permit the management of the services provided to be structured on a long-term basis.

Special Note: Project applications received before 31/10 will be presented at the Board of Directors Meeting in April,depending on the results of their initial assessment.
