 JWF Fund

 The Japan Water Forum Fund (JWF Fund) was founded in 2005 and is operated solely by JWF.  The JWF Fund aims to contribute to the solution of local water-related issues in developing countries by assisting in the implementation of sustainable solutions led by grass-roots organizations.  Every year, the JWF publicly seeks out projects to assist and provides grants of up to USD1,500 per project, adopted through an assessment process.  We value projects that utilize local resources, knowledge, and technologies, and include a sustainable operations and maintenance scheme. 

During the past 20 years, the JWF Fund has supported 199 projects in 32 countries, benefiting more than 273,000 people. The Fund is made up of JWF membership fees and public donations. 

In 2023, the JWF Fund selected 5 projects from 5 countries from 208 submissions coming from 32 countries.
