Founded in 2008, better with water (previously Eau et Vie) is a French non-confessional and non-political international solidarity association, inspired by an idea: slum dwellers also deserve and can afford sustainable water supply in their homes. The levers of action are access to a water service at home, the absence of which is a real scourge in densely populated urban areas, and whose impact is also achieved through community building. In 2023, better with water manages 6 programs in 2 countries (Bangladesh and the Philippines) for a global budget of 4.2M€, with mixed financing (private and public).
