Hello FaithMwanyolo, thank you for your Wiki Loves Africa submission. I have a couple of comments regarding your application.

  1. We're hoping to keep prizes the same across the continent. If you can adjust your prizes to be $350 in total that would be great.
  2. Please note that we don't allow cash prizes. Can you please confirm that you are planning to provide vouchers, gift cards or the like instead of cash to your participants?

Please let us know your responses to these questions and we will proceed with our proposal review. Best regards, WJifar (WMF) (talk) 00:38, 5 December 2019 (UTC)Reply

Hello WJifar (WMF),

  1. I have amended this.
  2. I will give out gift vouchers to the participants.

Warm regards, FaithMwanyolo

Additional comments from WMF


Hello FaithMwanyolo, I'm sorry I didn't catch this earlier but I see in your budget that you have a line item that states you will be giving stipends to coordinators. You will see in our Funding guidelines that is not something we cover. Could you please remove this from your budget? Best regards, WJifar (WMF) (talk) 22:34, 12 December 2019 (UTC)Reply

Hi WJifar (WMF), I have amended this and removed the stipend from the budget. I hope it is alright now. Looking forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, FaithMwanyolo
