The Young Water Fellowship (YWF) incubation programme empowers 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, in partnership with local incubators.
Through our YWF incubation programmes we provide the enabling conditions for young entrepreneurs to create water and sanitation social businesses.
Key figures of the YWF Incubation
Since 2017, Young Water Solutions has implemented multiple editions of the Young Water Fellowship at different scales. To learn more about the outcomes of each edition, please download the reports using the links below.
Other than solving water, sanitation and other water management issues (SDG 6 & 14), our Fellows’ social businesses are gender-sensitive (SDG 5) and increase employment opportunities for local youth (SDG 8),
