Entrepreneurs du Monde, founded in 1998, is a French public interest association which works with populations in developing countries. The organisation helps thousands of women and men living in extremely difficult circumstances to improve their living conditions, by supporting their own entrepreneurial ventures and giving them access to products which can bring significant health, economic and environmental benefits. Entrepreneurs du Monde helps these people create the conditions they need to become successful, and in turn make economic and social progress.
The modern and economical equipment it offers through its access to energy programmes improves the living conditions of beneficiaries, reduces the risk of poisoning and contributes to a reduction in large-scale deforestation.

The Haiti School Project was created by Tim Myers and Fred Ireland after hearing a follow-up story on NPR’s Planet Money about a school building that was started in Villard, Haiti. The building of the school had stalled, literally, at the foundation stage. Tim and Fred had never met but heard the same story on NPR and wanted to help. They each independently contacted NPR asking if something more could be done. They were put in touch with each other and this was the genesis of The Haiti School Project.
