  • Community organizer Hey! I'm an underage and I would help!

  • A very essential project. Grants:IdeaLab/Wiki Loves Social has the same theme and has the same purpose. Possibly the projects can be merged and taken ahead. DiptanshuTalk 10:27, 3 March 2017 (UTC)
  • Would love to connect with you! We're also going for major improvements in the inclusivity of kids, not just for accessibility, but across all ages, cultural backgrounds and abilities. Would be very happy to collaborate and help bring you the Human Resources you need. DrMel (talk) 20:54, 29 March 2017 (UTC)
