Endorsment from —Gwanki✉️[edit]

I am thrilled to endorse this project! Through my past engagements with the applicant, I have witnessed their exceptional competence and experience in project delivery and carefully planned strategy. This project will undoubtedly be no exception. It is inspiring to see that the region is producing highly skilled facilitators, especially through projects like this. After this project, the region will have a surplus of talented individuals to transition to group for any future project.

Furthermore, I am impressed with the applicant's idea of engaging the Hausa Wikimedians Usergroup in the implementation process. This approach is highly strategic and sustainable. The proposed strategies are achievable and directly connect with the expected outcomes. I am confident that this project will be successful and contribute significantly to the growth of knowledge in the region. Hence, I wholeheartedly endorse this project!

Endorsement from Yahuzaishat[edit]

Having previously participated in a project led by the applicant, I can attest to the positive impact that his leadership has had. As someone who has been recruited as a trainer for this project, I am excited to work alongside the applicant and contribute to its success. The proposal is well-crafted and displays a high level of clarity and quality. The strategy for sustainability is both clear and viable, which is crucial for the long-term impact of the program. I have no doubt that this project will benefit the university community and increase awareness of the Wikimedia Foundation and its mission.


I am pleased to provide my endorsement for the proposed Wikimedia Awareness in Pen Resource University, which will undoubtedly be a valuable initiative for the university community. The project lead has a proven track record of strategic planning and strong organizational skills, having worked on various projects including the Global Youth Project, which was funded by renowned organizations such as the United Nations and the World Health Organization.

The lead's previous project was of exceptional quality and demonstrated a high level of excellence in its execution. His ability to strategize, plan and implement is truly impressive, and I am confident that he will bring the same level of dedication and skill to this project.

It is heartening to know that the University is supportive of this project and is eager to embrace it. The proposed strategies for the project are clear, and it is my belief that it will be a significant asset to the university community, particularly in the realm of Wikimedia training.

The proposed Wikimedia Awareness in Pen Resource University is an incredibly qualitative initiative that I wholeheartedly endorse. One aspect that particularly impresses me is the application's high level of quality and comprehensiveness.

This not only demonstrates their readiness to undertake the project but also indicates their commitment to ensuring its successful implementation. I am delighted by the prospect of our region benefiting from the expertise of experienced facilitators who will be nurtured through projects of this nature. By bringing in such knowledgeable individuals, this initiative promises to enhance the educational landscape and provide invaluable guidance to students and faculty alike. I am highly optimistic about the proposed Wikimedia Awareness in Pen Resource University, as it not only showcases the applicant's commitment to excellence but also offers the opportunity for our region to thrive and grow through the contributions of skilled facilitators.

I love the fact that the proposal is very clear. In all the time I have checked or read applications under Rapid Grant, rarely do I come across qualitative and well detailed proposals as the Wikimedia Awareness in Pen Resource University. And the applicant has proven to be dedicated and strategic organizer and trainer, including the fact that the project will also partner the Hausa Group for sustainability. I therefore strongly endorse the project for approval with the hope that the university community will greatly benefit and join the free knowledge movement.

Good day YPam, I am writing to request an extension for my project to commence on the 24th of July instead of the initially scheduled date of 10th of July. The is due to the late delivery of funds/payment, which only arrived yesterday, causing a 10-day setback to the project timeline. I am in communication with the university, the new requested extension date will be beneficial for both the project and the university. Thank you!
