High Five : Seventy One Percent x Vision du Monde

Every 5th of month, SeventyOne Percent is happy to present to you an organization, an initiative, a person committed to change for a better world. In February, zoom with a brand partner NGO, Vision du Monde and it’s CEO Camille Romain des Boscs.

What is Vision du Monde  ?

Vision du Monde is an international  solidarity association to help the more vulnerable children. Member of World Vision NGO, founded in 1950, today’s World’s #1 sponsorship association.

Concretely ? Every month, thanks to a 30€ donation, the godmother or godfather of a child participates in a concrete and sustainable life condition improvement, in essential domains, such as Health, Education, drinking Water access and food. He or she can mail, exchange pictures, drawings, and can meet, to better sense the real impact of the sponsorship in  the godson’s life or his community. In France, the association counts with 35 000 donors, 24 000 children spread in twelve countries such as Mali, Mongolia, Cambodgia, Bolivia, Ethiopia, Lebanon.

Why does SeventyOne Percent support Vision du Monde ?

Vision du Monde is the 1% of SeventyOne Percent, more than a financial commitment, it is an encounter based on shared values that makes the collaboration, in particular because water is at the origins of Life, and the association brings access to drinking water. It acts building drinking water wells, also helping communities on hygiene, health, education, security and dignity issues.

In 2017, Vision du Monde brought access to drinking water every 10 seconds to a new person via the World Vision Partnership, making the NGO, the #1 drinking water supplier of the world.

Meeting Mrs Camille Romain des Boscs, Vision du Monde CEO :

What combat makes you wake up every morning?

Camille Romain des Boscs, Vision du Monde CEO : Since my arrival at Vision du Monde, 8 years ago, I am proud of everything we do, little by little, everyday, to make children live peacefully, eating at need, beloved and enjoying life. I saw the fruit of our fieldwork, met women and children, fathers whom’s life was transformed thanks to the generosity of our donors. Our teams implication on the field, the needed time taken to help real change (10 years in average), and the full understanding of the issues in their complexity. We can celebrate projects. And that is exciting!

Of what action do you take more pride in ?

Camille Romain des Boscs : I do not know if you are aware…Thanks to our international network, Vision du Monde is the #1 worldwide drinking water supplier. We give access to drinking water to a new person every 10 seconds and we equip 3 new schools every day ! We are proud of these results, because we know that water is life ! Water is everything : health, food….but also schooling, equal opportunities for girls and boys. If there's no water in the villages, the girls have to walk miles every day to find  it rather sitting in classrooms.

That’s why since 2 years now, we have decided to rally the french public over drinking water access issues launching an international movement : the Global 6K for Water” the 6 kilometers for water. Why 6 Km? It is the average distance an in development country child walks every day to have water, which is often polluted and dangerous for health. When these kids, mainly little girls, look for water, they miss school and are exposed to multiple dangers. The idea is to complete the 6 km for these children so they do not have to do it themselves. In 2019, the race took place in 30 countries, rallying 62 000 people. Thanks to them and the inscriptions, more than 75 000 people will benefit of these actions. In France, 3200 people met in 29 cities for the second edition of the Global 6K for Water. Join us in 2020 !

What concrete action can anyone take ?

Camille Romain des Boscs : At Vision du Monde we have understood that the efficient and full of sense approach to eradicate the root causes of poverty is sponsorship. Your donation is used to finance sustainable projects who benefit the most within the sponsorship program and your godson benefits of a specific follow up and the moral cheering of your sponsorship. You can mail him and visit them if you wish ! With 30€ per month (1€ per day!), it's the life of entire families you help to improve. All your donations allows you a 66% tax write-off (for a 30€ donation, you only pay 10,20€). Should you know that 81% of your donations are allocated to our social missions. Ready to join the great solidarity chain of godfathers and godmothers of Vision du Monde ?

Special thanks to Camille Romain des Boscs and team for helping us with this interview.
