TechnoXian encourages all teams who are in need of raising funds, especially in rural areas. With the help of grant, beneficial team will be provided:

Frequently Asked Questions ( ? )
Question: We are starting a new team, how can we raise ?
Answer: The first option to raise fund for WRC can be your school's sponsorship. If you do not get it, there are many other opportunities to raise money for your WRC team and contacting local businesses is great place to start. Many teams have associations with companies that have interest in or may already provide grants/support to WRC teams - but often, the connection is never discovered. Also consider having your team's Mentors and parents ask their employer about supporting your team.
