Elisabeth & Amélie Fund - access to water - 2022
Support for projects of Belgian organizations working in countries in the southern hemisphere to improve access to water.
What is it about?
The Elisabeth and Amélie Fund supports initiatives of Belgian organizations active in Africa, Latin America and Asia, which work with a local partner to improve access to water in a sustainable way.
The specific objective of the call 2022 is to provide access to water in primary health care centers in rural areas.
Access to sufficient safe water, basic sanitation and hygiene is an absolute necessity to maintain the health of a community and contribute to its economic development.
Water being a common good, it must be managed equitably. There must be a concerted approach between all stakeholders.
In the current context of climate change, it is essential to emphasize water conservation while adapting to local specificities and context.
