Small Grants Program
Communities in malaria-endemic regions can embrace anti-malaria projects. For MPI and its Rotary Member partners, these small grant projects are instrumental in helping in the global campaign to end malaria.
In 2013, Malaria Partners International began its Small Grants Program. It was aimed at empowering Rotary Clubs in malaria-impacted regions to take direct action in controlling the spread of malaria in their community. Successful applications must address needs carefully defined community needs, utilize best malaria control practices, and provide measurable and attainable goals.
Malaria Partners International works separately within the Rotary International community raising its own funding independently through donor appeals to individuals, foundations, and corporations.
