Vi er kjempefornøyd med den støtten og omtalen prosjektet vårt har fått, både på Distriktskonferansen for D2270 og ellers i form av omtale og mailer.
Det er begynt å komme inn penger fra klubbene til vår prosjektkont. Pr. idag har følgende klubber betalt inn mellom 1.500 og 10.000 hver:
- Fauske RK
- Bodø RK
- Fosna RK
- Bodø Mørkved RK
Totalt Kr. 21.500,- Tusen takk!
I tillegg står det 10.000 på kontoen fra egen klubb, men dette regner vi med vil øke betydelig etter at vi har gjennomført arrangementene våre i august/septermber.

Til tross for at vi dessverre ble meddelt at Matching Grant budsjettet er oppbrukt for dette rotaryåret, har vi absolutt ikke til hensikt å la prosjektet lide av den grunn. Vi står på for å øke finansieringen gjennom klubbmidler og ikke minst DDF midler. Det er derfor gått ut en oppfordring til deltakende parter om å øke sin finansielle støtte til prosjektet, ikke minst ved øket bruk av DDF midler. Ny finanieringsplan vil bli sendt inn innen 31.03.2010.
De to Harstadklubbene er igang med å planlegge aktiviteter!
Foreløpig står 4-5 spennende og til dels morsomme aktiviteter og "events" på blokka. Det jobbes iherdig med disse og vi kommer tilbake med mer info i løpet av Februar/Mars .
Vikommer også til å registrere klubbene for Grasrotandel i Norsk Tipping og kommer til å avsette disse midlene uavkortet til prosjektet.
Vi har gitt ut et INFO skriv for Januar 2010.

On behalf of Primary Host Club, Jimma-Central RC of District 9200 and Primary International Club, Harstad Syd RC of District 2270 as well as other clubs, districts and partners, we are proud to inform that Application for our Matching Grant project “Operating equipment for pediatric burn care unit” has been submitted today. The project will be carried out in close cooperation with our partner, Childrens Burn Care Foundation of Ethiopia.
19 October 2009
Initially, Addis Abeba Bole RC of Ethiopia, was selected to be "Primary Host Club". The project plan was created in close cooperation with this club and Childrens Burn Care Foundation.
However, Addis Abeba Bole has been vary active the last years, thus the number of active project in this club exceeds 5, the maximum number of simultaneous projects that can be managed by one club.
Through contacts established by Club President of Addis Abeba Bole RC and Einar Eriksen of CBCF, we are pleased to inform that Jimma Central RC of Ethiopia has taken over the role as Primary Host Club.
This process has also caused a minor delay in completing the final MG application. This will be completed shortly and within next deadline, December 1. The delay does not have any consequence as to the general progression of the long term project for CBCF. The funding situation of Matching Grant does not imply any funding this year.
Local fund raising and use of District Designated Fund will be initiated shortly and the intention is to spend this year on club/district funding.
At the D2270 District Conference, our project was presented by President Elect Jan Johnsen and Hans Petter Schjelderup. The interest for our project at the conference was overwhelming and both clubs and our district indicated financial support and we are quite convinced that we will receive financial support outside the four initial clubs and related districts. During the conference we also had useful talks with Rotary Officials. Some important matters was clarified with RRFC Edrun Olaisen, Zone 16.
To sum up the latest progressions:
1. Harstad Syd RC will establish a bank account for open support from Rotary Clubs. These clubs will participate in a financial matter only and will be kept informed by email and website about the progression and financial status. There will be no limits on support (low or high)
2. The four clubs, Addis Abeba Bole (primary host club), Harstad Syd (primary international club), Harstad RC and Molde RC will still form the management of the project.
3. Since this is a Competitive Grants project, Application deadline is August 1, and TRF will evaluate in October.
