This proposal will help to develop Wikimedia Commons with better images. Yusuf Sa'adu (talk) 20:33, 17 July 2022 (UTC)Reply


There are few photos from this area of ​​Sokoto and Kebbi states, surely this proposal will help to provide accurate photos from this important area. And it will develop Hausa and English Wikipedia articles with photos. I'm a photographer I'll be happy to participate. Hamza DK (talk) 23:08, 17 July 2022 (UTC)Reply

Endorsment from A Sulaiman Z (talk)[edit]

In my review, I also faced the problem of lack of photos in articles related to Sokoto and Kebbi States, I support this proposal based on the experience of the person who will lead its management is a person who is an expert in managing wikimedia projects.

Not funded[edit]

Hello Gwanki,

Thank you for submitting your grant application. We appreciate your interest in contributing to the mission of the Wikimedia Movement. We are continuously strengthening our grants review process, ensuring that grant funding is being invested towards impactful projects and efforts geared towards contributing to the mission of Wikimedia Movement in the most efficient and effective manner.

After a thorough review of your application, we have decided to not fund your Rapid Fund request. Here are the main reasons for our decision:

  • The overall impact of the proposed project is unclear. The proposed budget is not aligned with the proposed impact. Please write a detailed grant application that shows impact and the change you want to see; it should not be repetitive and should have well-planned activities and budget that align with your context.
  • The team's experience on the relevant Wikimedia project is unclear. This has been communicated to the team in the past too.
  • The described activities are similar to another grant request in this round.
