RAGM identifies it's mandate as four fold: Coordination, Communication, Networking and Education. Using the search box and discrete topics such as a country or a project type (microfinance, savings groups, etc.) you can find articles of interest and contact names from which you can follow up.
Typical articles are less than 1,500 words in length, contain one or more graphic image / photograph and address a single point of interest.
Contact information, usually at article's end, helps direct enquiries first to the article's authors and then to the webmaster and finally the RAGM Communiations Direvtor.
