Project Goal[edit]

Briefly explain what are you trying to accomplish with this project, or what do you expect will change as a result of this grant. Example goals include, "recruit new editors", "add high quality content", or "train existing editors on a specific skill".

As an original project grant was not eligible for dead line submission reason, this rapid grant could permit to start activities until the next round proposal. The activity project on Louvain coopération NGO (L.C. NGO) already started and should be sported by Wikimedia Foundation or suspended until possible acceptance of the project grant.

Digitalization became a warm topic in Belgian Cooperation sphere :

With this rapid grant, we hope starting soon as possible a first collaboration between Wikimedia Mouvement and a Belgian NGO as concrete example for lobbying in Belgian Cooperation sphere.
