The Women in WASH Mentorship Program connects junior and senior women working in the water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) sector. The focus is to help junior professionals to develop their skills and support their personal and professional growth with guidance, advice, and feedback from a female mentor.

How Does it Work?

Red Triangle

The Women in WASH Mentorship Program will have an online format, and it is free of charge.

Orange Triangle

For the initial phase, we expect to have a maximum of 30 participants — 20 mentees, and 10 mentors — and each mentor will co-mentor two mentees.

Yellow Triangle

The mentoring relationship is expected to last for 6 months; though, engagement between mentors and mentees can of course continue beyond the 6 months if both parties agree.


If either party decides to terminate the mentoring relationship before the 6 months is up, you can do so, but please communicate this to the Agenda for Change Secretariat first.

About the Mentees

Our mentees are a diverse group of young WASH professionals or students under the age of 35 who identify as women. They hail from 12 countries and speak more than 15 shared languages.

About the mentors

Our mentors are all senior women professionals with experience in the water, sanitation, and/or hygiene (WASH) sectors. They bring a diversity of experiences, skills, and languages to help our mentees through the program.
