Parkville Rotary Partnering on a NEW Global Grant! 

The Parkville Rotary Board has approved the use of $2,200 to be put towards Smithville Rotary Club's Global Grant with the Rotary Club of Rudramati Kathmandu in Nepal to provide much needed medical equipment and supplies in the rural area outside of Kathmandu. We have drafted a Global Grant application, number GG 2235567, called Nepal Healthy Communities. 
The area of RI focus is maternal and child health. Two health centers will receive medical equipment, supplies, and training.  Both health centers provide obstetric and gynecological services to socially and economically marginalized women. 
The total value of the grant project is $31,001. The project currently has financial support from the Rotary Clubs of Smithville, North Kansas City, Gladstone, Parkville, and Rudramati Kathmandu; and from District 6040. We anticipate the contributions from the World Fund (RI) will be $12,000. 
The grant application will be submitted mid-May. If the Grant request is approved, the funds will be needed mid-June. We are excited to be helping fund this wonderful grant.
Our own Steve Youngblood will be in Kathmandu this summer and is intending to travel for the project as well.  He will be working directly with the Smithville Club to determine where he will go and hopefully he will be able to take a gift for the Rotary Club of Rudramati Kathmandu with him on the trip!
