What is the JWF Fund?
The JWF Fund was founded in 2005 and is solely operated by the Japan Water Forum (JWF). The JWF Fund aims to contribute to solving local water-related issues in developing countries by assisting the implementation of sustainable solutions led by grass-roots organizations.
Every year, the JWF publicly seeks out projects to assist and provides grants up to 1,500USD per project adopted after due assessment. We value the projects which utilize local resources, knowledge and technologies, and establish a sustainable operation and maintenance scheme.
The JWF Fund is made up of JWF membership fees of the JWF members and general donations. Please visit here for more details.
