JWF Fund

 The Japan Water Forum Fund (JWF Fund) was founded in 2005 and is solely operated by 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.

During the past 19 years, the JWF Fund supported 194 projects in 32 countries, benefiting more than 268,000 people. The JWF Fund is made up of JWF membership fees of the JWF members and general donations.

The JWF Fund 2022 was conducted where 5 projects from 5 countries were selected out of projects submitted from 32 countries.
