  • As account for uploading contents. Louvain Coopération (talk) 14:38, 9 March 2017 (UTC)
  • As fundraising and marketing manager of Louvain Coopération NGO, I fully support this project by working as adviser Feronthomas (talk) 12:16, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
  • We at Kiwix know Lionel very well (and he's been a great evangelist for us in Belgium): he's actually getting a discount on the plugs because we believe there's potential for scaling. Overall the project looks good value for money, particularly with the potential extension described in Phase II. Stephane (talk) 07:52, 29 March 2017 (UTC)
