Small grants for water and sanitation projects

Call for applicants for the Japan Water Forum Fund 2008 ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

The Japan Water Forum is pleased to invite grass-roots organizations in developing countries to apply for the Japan Water Forum Fund 2008.

This Fund was created for awarding grants to grass-roots organizations in developing countries involved in water-related activities. We will provide up to 1,000US$ per activity or project. However, receiving a grant is limited to once a year for each selected organization.

“Grass-roots activities” are activities planned and faithfully implemented by grass-roots organizations to bring about an appreciable improvement upon the current water issues. These activities include various projects, awareness-raising campaigns, publicity activities to promote citizens participation and educational programs for capacity building on water-related issues: water supply; sanitation; water-related diseases; irrigation; drainage; dams; river and lake basins; wetlands; groundwater; poverty; and gender.
