Proposal Form

The Community Needs Assessment was carried out by members of the Rotary Club of Rudramati Kathmandu and Rural Youth People Concern Forum (RYPCF) the summer of 2020.

The global grant project funds will be used to train approximately 210 indigenous inhabitants, primarily farmers, youth and women, from an area outside Kathmandu, Nepal, and to purchase a 15 MT cold storage facility and dehydration unit.

Training of the community participants will include orientation to the grant, its purpose and goals; agriculture best practices to increase yield; production and use of non-toxic pesticides; use, scheduling, and maintenance of the cold storage facility and dehydrator; education in food preservation (dehydration, jam and jelly preserves, juicing and candy-making); Hygiene best practices and quality control; and basic financial management. The training of the students is expected to begin May 2021 and completed in approximately three months. Field professionals will conduct the training which was designed by the CTEVT.

The Rotary Club of Rudramati, in conjunction with the RYFCP, will carry out both the selection of students, implementation of the program, as well as monitoring throughout and at the conclusion of the program. Members of the Rotary Club of Denver Mile High will travel to Nepal at the end of the project to finalize any open issues, and to visit with and see the success of the students. Rotary Club of Denver Mile High will write the final report to Rotary International Global Grants.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
