31/01/2017

Georges River Council, through the Stronger Communities Fund Program, has awarded $20,800 in funding to the Team behind the 2NBC Radio program Janaranjani.
 
The Janaranjani Team, which hosts an Indian language and cultural program every Monday night, requested funding to help continue creating radio shows to facilitate the intergenerational learning of Indian culture.
 
The funding will be used to help purchase new mobile recording equipment and the development of a new website.
 
Janaranjani Team member Sarma Nimmagadda said the Team wanted to sincerely thank Georges River Council for the funding.
 
“The funding allocated to Janaranjani has been at the right time in implementing our projects,” he said.
 
Sarma added that it was also a “unique and wonderful experience” learning about the other successful applicants of the Stronger Communities Fund Program and a great opportunity to share ideas and interests with these groups.
 
Administrator of Georges River Council, John Rayner, congratulated Janaranjani on their successful grant funding application.
 
“Community radio is a great platform for diverse groups to share their culture with the wider community. This funding will go a long way to supporting Janaranjani and their mission to promote and share Indian language and culture,” he said.
 
“Cultural diversity is what makes the Georges River area such a unique place in not only Sydney but NSW as a whole, and Council is proud to help support this diversity through groups such as Janaranjani.”
 
More than 60 applications were received by Council requesting funding through the Stronger Communities Fund Program.
 
Of these applications, 27 were awarded grant funding ranging from $10,000 to $50,000, which totalled $1 million.
