Request changes[edit]

We understand that sometimes plans change. Please use this button to request approval for changes to your grant’s budget while your project is in progress. Any variation of 20% or more to any line item in your budget must be approved by staff here before you make the change (for projects with budgets of $15,000 or more, the accepted variance is 10%).

Budget change request[edit]

We would like to request for an additional $1,886.73 to purchase two laptops and two headsets which will be used by facilitators during our virtual workshops and trainings.

Item quantity Unit Cost(USD) Total Cost(USD)
Laptop 2 857.604 1715.208
Headsets 2 85.7604 171.5208
Total 1886.7288


We have had to organise most of our events online and it has been quite challenging considering the faulty laptops and headsets our facilitators have been using during the virtual trainings and workshops. There have been situations where our facilitators either drop off the calls unexpectedly, or they either have to readjust their earphones several times before participants can hear them. These challenges end up frustrating our facilitators a lot and have hindered us from organising smooth trainings online so far.

Request approved[edit]

Approving this request for an additional $1,886.73 USD to cover laptops and headsets for facilitators. This equipment should be maintained by the Global Open Initiative when the project is finished to support Wikimedian volunteers and/or projects going forward.
