First Look- First FVP Grant Supporting Child & Maternal Health

As a participant in a non-FVP (Future Vision Pilot) districts, I think I am just as curious as to how the integration of our Foundation's programs will look under the new construct. Hot off the presses- here is the first opportunity ever for FVP districts to participate in a "Packaged Global Grant", including an associated VTT or Vocational Training Team. The following is a project description with a link to more information if you are interested.   

Grant Description. Rotarians will assemble vocational training teams (VTTs) to enhance the clinical and administrative skills of university‐level nursing educators, thus improving the quality of the education the nurses receive. VTTs will design the training curriculum with input from Aga Khan University. AKU, an agency of the Aga Khan Development Network, is focused on increasing the number and skill sets of professionals in the developing world by providing access to opportunities in higher education and research. The training will take place at AKU’s campuses in Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda. The VTTs will also work with local Rotarians in District 9200 and with AKU to coordinate and implement a service project that connects the training to existing clinics or medical programs. The award amount is US$20,000‐$30,000 per vocational training team. Approximately three grants will be awarded annually. This packaged global grant supports the maternal and child health area of focus.
