where are we going
Where are we going?
  • TRF is reviewing its mechanisms for funding and trying for bigger more useful projects such as the Medicine Hat Club’s HHH Project in India.
  • At the same time clubs will still be able to apply for smaller grants through District Project Grants – a part of TRF. These are for international or local projects.
