What is the JWF Fund?
- The JWF Fund was founded in 2005 and operated solely by the Japan Water Forum (JWF), which aims to support selected grass-roots organizations in developing countries, which have been addressing local water-related issues.
- Every year, the JWF publicly seeks projects to support. Those adopted are eligible to receive funding of up to US$ 1,500 each. Our assessment focuses on the consistency of project solutions, reliance on locally available materials, personnel, technology, and facility maintenance structures.
- The JWF Fund is based on membership fees of JWF members and donations from general contributors.
