2018 Fellows advance on their pilot projects
From November 2018 to April 2019, Young Water Fellows selected in the 2018 call for applications are focused on piloting their social businesses with the €5000 received as part of the seed funding offered by the Young Water Fellowship Programme. Their pilots are expected to help them set up their social businesses and improve the water and/or sanitation conditions of 5,000 people.
