Fondation Ensemble

Fondation Ensemble is a private foundation - recognised by the state as serving the public interest. Its mission, that is clearly defined in the statute, is: \"All actions undertaken take into account environmental factors and integrate environmental protection of all living plant and animal species\".


In partnership with international, national and local associative structures, and funding agencies, the Foundation supports projects in direct relation to the needs of the populations; projects whose impacts are measurable over time and favour the emergence of local skills; and innovative projects, whenever the context allows. Water and sanitation, sustainable development, animal biodiversity: the Foundation's three areas of activity illustrate the founders’ will to fight poverty and, at the same time, contribute durably to the protection of the environment. Climate change, depletion of natural resources, the destruction of ecosystems, deforestation, the breakdown of food supplies, reduction in the amount of agricultural land, etc. The area of activity \"sustainable development\" is dedicated to financing alternative solutions such as renewable energy, biodiversity conservation, the rational use of natural resources, sustainable agriculture, alternative methods of waste management, etc.
