The Puressentiel Foundation: Protection of Childhood

Water and electricity for over 50 children in an orphanage

IN BENIN, THE PURESSENTIEL FOUNDATION SUPPORTS 1.2.3. DECLICS TO PROVIDE MATERIAL SUPPORT TO CHILD-RELATED STRUCTURES IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES.

The project supported by the Puressentiel Foundation in 2022 concerns the orphanage Centre d'Accueil La Paix, located in Natitingou in Benin. This orphanage takes care of more than fifty children from birth to adolescence.
Water and electricity are, of course, fundamental for the good functioning of the orphanage in autonomy. Still, at the moment, they are very random and depend a lot on the will of some donors.

Therefore, the project aims to finance the installation of solar panels in the orphanage. These will allow an autonomous supply of electricity and the functioning of a water pump.

The construction of 10 houses to improve the living conditions of 10 families

IN SRI LANKA, THE PURESSENTIEL FOUNDATION SUPPORTS THE C.I.E.LO PROJECT (INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION FOR LOCAL EQUILIBRIA) TO HELP IMPROVE THE LIVING CONDITIONS OF DISADVANTAGED POPULATIONS IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES.

It will improve the living conditions of 10 families (44 people including 20 children) living below the poverty line in the village of KAPPALTHURAI in unhealthy and indecent housing conditions by building for each of them a house that complies with human dignity, equipped with a living room, a kitchen and two bedrooms.

The project also aims to help improve the sanitary conditions of these families, who currently have no toilet, by building latrines next to their new house that meets the standards of the World Health Organisation.

Access to water for 300 people (including 150 children)

THE PURESSENTIEL FOUNDATION ALLOWS THE CREATION OF 2 WELLS FOR TWO VILLAGES IN CAMBODIA: SAMRONG AND ALONG TRACH, WITH ENFANTS DU MÉKONG.

This project will help 300 people with their daily domestic and agricultural water needs (cultivating their fields and watering the few animals). The children will be able to attend school properly and live in good hygienic conditions.

This project, therefore, provides for the creation of a well in Samrong to give access to water to the 75 people who live, study and work at the Children of the Mekong Education Centre in Samrong. And the creation of a well in the village Along Trach gives access to water to 40 families, i.e. 200 people & their hundred animals.

The rehabilitation of 6 new nurseries for 400 children

IN SOUTH AFRICA, THE PURESSENTIEL FOUNDATION HAS SUPPORTED THE FROGGIES FAMILY SINCE 2020. THIS ASSOCIATION COLLECTS FUNDS TO FINANCE SUSTAINABLE PROJECTS BACKED BY LOCAL STRUCTURES FOR DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN WORLDWIDE.

It consists of carrying out renovation work (roofing, waterproofing, electricity, kitchen and sanitary facilities) to contribute to the safety and general well-being of the children and educators in 6 crèches due to significant defects in the buildings.
