Eau & Vie establishes piped water services in low-income urban areas, with additional services such as hygiene training, firefighting, waste management and sanitation. It has operations in Philippines, Bangladesh and the Ivory Coast. Its objective is to provide high quality, integrated services that are affordable, easily accessible, and financially sustainable.
Eau & Vie connects to the local utility’s network, treats water and distributes it to low income households where the majority of residents live under $2 a day. Households receive a single bill for services, and benefit from local customer support and maintenance services.
The Foundation is providing grant support to operations in Bangladesh, where Eau & Vie is currently delivering services to 10,000 people in Dhaka and Chattogram.
In the next 18 months Eau & Vie plans to deploy piped water services in four new slum areas and implement initiatives to increase revenues and improve operational efficiency.
