Young Water Fellowship Program

The Young Water Fellowship (YWF) is our flagship programme. It aims to empower early-stage young entrepreneurs from low and middle income countries to set up social businesses that tackle water, sanitation & hygiene, water pollution and water scarcity issues, by offering them a fully-funded intensive training in business & WASH, seed funding grants for their pilot projects, and mentorship support from senior level experts during one year.

We provide the enabling conditions for young entrepreneurs to create water and sanitation social businesses.

Young Water Fellows are selected through an open call for applications according to criteria that include innovation, impact, feasibility, business potential, leadership potential of the candidate

Selected Fellows attend a two-weeks start-up training delivered in partnership with local and international incubators. After completion, Fellows have a viable business model to tackle a water or sanitation issue, ready to pilot.

Seed funding for pilot implementation
Fellows can apply for a seed funding grant of up to €5000 to pilot their business models over 6 months following the training. So far, 97% of selected Fellows have received funding. The average amount awarded is €4400.

Coaching and mentor matching
During the pilot implementation, YWS offers regular coaching calls to Fellows, and matches them with senior experts according to their needs. They also join the YWF Alumni community, where they can meet and interact with Fellows from other cohorts.
