Offline publishing for targeted networking 250 USD 21,978.30 MXN 0 MXN / We originally planned to spend 250 USD. Because of all the resources we have created, the cost has increased. Fortunately, since we established so many partnerships for our edit-a-thons, the grant money will cover this expense.

Total 5,500 USD 103,158.73 MXN 0 MXN

* The project time changed because we created a new strategy that involved training the WiR, creating manuals of this training, and establishing a flexible part-time job that allowed us to do more activities with the same budget.


  1. We didn't consider the sending taxes, so our entire budget reduced.
  2. We had unspent funds from most rows thanks to the partnerships we established, but we used this money on the "offline publishing for targeted networking".
  3. We added the row "transportations", which we didn't consider at the beginning but it was necessary.
