Rotary Global Grants help Economic and Community Development



The Rotary Foundation (TRF) through its well established GLOBAL Grants empower Rotarians to carry out service projects by administering and partly financing the budget.  Rotary is dedicated to six areas of focus to build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever.
One of these areas of focus is Economic and Community Development (ECD).  TRF enables Rotarians to invest in people by creating sustainable, measurable and long term economic improvements in their communities and livelihoods. The Foundation has supported many global grants in the following sub-areas of ECD.

The Rotarian Action Group for Microfinance and Community Development (RAGM) is a group whose purpose is to promote and assist clubs and districts to participate in effective Microfinance and Community Development programs. 

One specific area in which RAGM can help Rotarians worldwide is the support in global grants from its inception to completion.   RAGM Board member, Narayan Murarka, is available and eager to provide expertise in navigating these grants through the process.  Please feel free to contact him npmurarka@comcast.net

Narayan is a member of Barrington Breakfast Rotary Club, D-6440, and has been extremely active both at the club and district level in a multitude of capacities including, but not limited to, membership, fundraising, community and youth service, international service, and club operations. 

During 2010-2016, Narayan served as Matching/Global Grants Chair for D-6440 Rotary Foundation Committee, developing an in-depth understanding of the Rotary Foundation and its various grant programs.  He has been instrumental in:

> Developing and implementing district policies for TRF's global/district grants
> Interfacing with district Rotarians to provide information and conduct training programs
> Serving as primary trainer at the Grants Management Seminars (GMS) at the district level
> Supporting district Rotarians to navigate through the intricacies of grant approval process
> Building partnerships between in-district and outside district clubs to share resources to finance global grants. 
> Providing guidance to over 35 individual Rotarians who sponsored global grants with over $2.5 million in budget.  These grants were implemented in several developing countries and incorporated several areas of focus.

Narayan has developed several videos and PowerPoint presentation related to The Rotary Foundation and Global Grants.  A sample video link is given below:
