Movement Strategy Implementation Grant Report

Please review the notes below before submitting your report.

Your draft implementation plan document should address the following questions clearly:

  • What movement strategy initiative or goal are you addressing?
  • What activities will you be doing to address that initiative?
  • What do you expect will happen as a result of your activities? How do those outcomes address the movement strategy initiative?
  • How will you measure or evaluate your activities? What tools or methods will you use to evaluate your activities?

To create a draft implementation plan, we recommend the use of a logic model, which will help you and your team think about goals, activities, outcomes, and other factors in an organized way. Please refer the following resources to develop a logic model:

What Movement Strategy initiative is this draft plan supporting?

What activities have you completed to produce this draft plan?

  • Weekly working group meetings.
    • We kept a fairly dense weekly meeting rate with few exceptions.
    • For a few meetings we had guests joining us to follow and give input.
  • Two focus group meetings with 10 participants
    • We meet with new users who have recently started editing, but as librarians in the country without Wikimedia Affiliates there was no obvious pathway to advance with engagement. We collected their inputs over urgencies they have and the ways to advance learning and practice.
    • We met with experienced Wikimedians who generously share their skills and help their language communities to grow. We collected inputs on ideal ways to self-represent, how to search for skills and commit to peer to peer support.
  • Presentations at other events:
    • Presented at a number of Wikimedia events we joined as a group or via representatives.

In which community channels have you announced your draft plan?

  • Upcoming presentation at the next Wikimedia European Affiliates Cooperation meeting in early 2022.
  • Announcement planned on the relevant Wikimedia Affiliates mailing lists.


Grant funds spent[edit]

Please describe how much grant money you spent for approved expenses, and tell us what you spent it on.

As of the end of the grant period, we have spent 1500 USD. The majority of the funds were spent on the coordination and documentation activities relating to the focus groups as outlined in our grant proposal. The allocated funds were also spent on the outlined research and documentation we proposed, and we have also spent a portion of the allocated funding for the translation of relevant documentation and to compensate for participation in focus groups.

Remaining funds[edit]

Do you have any remaining grant funds?

Remaining funds have been used or will be used for other approved mission-aligned activities. This use has been requested in writing and approved by WMF.

As of the end of the grant period we have 500 USD unspent funds. The majority of the unspent is related to the ongoing pandemic and the effect that was felt on our outreach efforts and ability to identify translators in some of our target languages, amounting to 300 USD. The rest of the balance is unspent funds relating to coordination and the difficulty in organising an additional focus group totalling 200 USD.

If it is possible to retain these funds to continue to support the translation of the relevant meta pages into additional languages, this would be hugely beneficial.

Anything else[edit]

Anything else you want to share about your project? Due to COVID-19 pandemic, holiday season, professional and family issues we had a hard time meeting the plan. We hope to have new people join us in 2022.
