Reid Asselstine, President of the Rotary Foundation (Canada) is pleased to announce that the new international development assistance program, entitled “Partnership for Community Development” funded with support from the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development will begin accepting applications from Canadian Rotary clubs commencing October 1, 2015.
The new program has as much as possible been integrated into the Rotary Foundation’s Global Grant program and will support many but not all Global Grant projects going forward over the next five years. To ensure that the project proposals meet program requirements, a pre-qualification process has been established.
For detailed information about the program please click on the GOC button at top of the Rotary Foundation Canada’s home page. There you will find the information, guidance and forms necessary to complete and submit the pre-qualification submission to TRFC.
In making the announcement, President Reid said, “This program is a wonderful opportunity for Canadian Rotarians to enhance international service projects, magnify their impact, advance peace in the world and truly make a difference! For our part, TRFC is very pleased to strengthen our working relationship with the Government of Canada on the one hand and Canadian Rotary Clubs on the other. We are confident that this new program will truly improve in a sustainable way the lives of so many of our fellow global citizens.”
The Partnership for Community Development will be administered by TRFC’s Program Committee in a virtual way. Questions and queries about the program may be directed to the Program committee via a dedicated email address -
