After successfully implementing these series of youth-led field projects across Africa and Asia, Young Water Solutions is proud to bring together its knowhow into one flagship program, the Young Water Fellowship.
The program aims to provide training + mentorship + funding for young people with ideas of projects to tackle water scarcity, water pollution and water, sanitation & hygiene (WASH) issues at a community level, for the period of one year. In its first edition, ten young leaders from developing countries will be selected from a global call for applications , and they will be offered to participate in an intensive hands-on training program in Brussels in November 2017, seed funding opportunities for their projects, and mentoring support by senior level experts. It will be the first fellowship of its kind, there’s no other focused on young people and field water projects.
Applications open on July 8th and close on August 7th.
