Autonomy and sustainability
At Iles de Paix, our work is small-scaled and in close collaboration with families involved in the projects. This allows us to work at a level that responds concretely to their needs. Thanks to this close and participatory approach, simple techniques that are low-cost and easily reproducible are used to obtain results that are sustainable. So there is no dependence created – financial or otherwise. The winning solutions coming out each Ile de Paix* can be reproduced in other families, villages and communities.
*”Ile de Paix” is a limited geographic zone (a commune, for example) where the population is faced with similar problems. Its size is just right for us to carry out actions of a certain scope and to obtain significant results.
