This had been a submission to the Wikimedia Participation Support process, but was withdrawn or otherwise cancelled (not denied).
I am an active Wikipedian with a considerable contribution on Gender Gap Issue. I have had a submission accepted at Adacamp, where I will be speaking about the gender gap issue that exist on Wikipedia specially at the Albanian Wikipedia. I have done activities and i am planing to do more in collaboration with others Wikimedias(like Serbian one) to increase the participation of girls on editing Wikipedia.
Goal and expected impact
As a result of my talk/discussion , hopefully everyone in the audience will understand the importance of having more females on Wikipedia, and sharing their own experience/thoughts about this. So we together to find more alternatives how to reduce the gap.
- Travel: From Tirana, Albania to Quebec, Canada. 1100 USD
- Visa: 79 USD
- Accommodation: USD 70 per night x 4 nights. 280 USD
- About the accommodation the price can be lower if i find more people to share the room.
The round trip from Albania to Canada was around 900-1100 USD. As the price is a little bit to high for me if i will win the scholarship it would be nice if Wikimedia book the ticket for me. I need a visa to go to Canada, so please as soon as possible I need to know if i won or not the scholarship. It would be great if a have a advance disbursement for the accommodation.
