Marbella-Guadalmina shows the way at TRF event

The Rotary Foundation (TRF) is Rotary's own and only charity that has spent over $3 billion in the last 100 years on sustainable, life changing projects. Rotary Clubs must navigate a strict application process to obtain access to TRF funds for their projects.  At a recent seminar in Malaga, Marbella-Guadalmina's application for a Global Grant was used as a notable example of how to achieve this. The Grant was for the Hagamos las Paces project - a peer mediation programme in Colombia.

Below, slides from the presentation by Juan Ballester, President of the TRF in the District, and a past Governor. He used the project as a example of how to make an application for  Global Grant.
    
To be approved, your application must clearly describe how your project, scholarship, or vocational training team:

  • Is sustainable — include plans for long-term success after the global grant funds have been spent
  • Includes measurable goals
  • Aligns with one of Rotary's areas of focus
  • Responds to real community needs
  • Actively involves Rotarians and community members
  • Meets the eligibility requirements in the grants terms and conditions

 Martina Spann presented Juan Ballester with honorary membership of the Medellin Club. As always, the event  included a celebratory lunch!
