Fellows Profile 

WaterWalla provides seed funding to idea- and prototype-stage projects focused on improving access to clean water. We also engage established organizations in related sectors, seeking to launch clean water projects. While teams with experience are preferred, the founders of WaterWalla began with nothing more than an idea, and we look for commitment and passion equally. Applications should demonstrate the team's capacity the following areas:

  • Focus on water, hygiene and sanitation
  • Education and community mobilization
  • Female empowerment
  • Inclusive business models - employing local talent
  • Long-term impact and core team sustainability

We ask for brief proposals with key information about your project, current status, and team. This allows us to identify projects and teams we think would be a good fit without requiring a full business plan. After an evaluation, we’ll invite selected teams to chat with us in person (if in our regions of operation) or via Skype, Google Hangout, etc. Here we hope to learn about your passion, vision, and more about the team.
