Decision

We are happy to support the events, but unfortunately we are not able to cover the entirety of the requested sum. Thus we are going to provide funding up to the amount of $1030 (the suggested budget reduced by the values of the gifts and stationery posts).

@Mompati Dikunwane: please reach out to us at alicia.fagerving(_AT_)wikimedia.se so that we can keep in touch about the practicalities. Best, Alicia Fagerving (WMSE) (talk) 10:07, 17 December 2019 (UTC)
