The 2018 Young Water Fellows have been selected, after a tough selection process due to the high number of quality applications received.
Based on criteria that included innovation, impact, feasibility, social business potential and leadership potential, 10 young people coming from Africa (5), Asia (2) and Latin America (3) were invited to participate in the Young Water Fellowship 2018. You can check their profiles here.
These 10 Fellows will come together in Switzerland on August 13th, to start a one-month training that will help them shape their initiatives and turn them into social businesses. They will also have seed-funding opportunities for the first phase of their start-ups, and be matched with mentors that will guide them in their path as young water entrepreneurs.
We thank the 430 people that applied to the call for applications, and we encourage them all to try again next year.
