What is the JWF Fund?

The JWF Fund was founded in 2005 and solely operated by Japan Water Forum (JWF), which aims to support selected grass-roots organizations in developing countries who have been addressing water-related issues in their own countries.

Every year, JWF publicly seeks for projects and those adopted will be eligible to receive the funding of up to 1,500 USD per project.  The due assessment will be focusing on the consistency of project solutions, commitment to locally available material, personnel, technology, and facility maintenance structure.

The JWF Fund is based upon membership fees of the JWF members and donations from general contributors.
