Comments from I JethroBT (WMF)[edit]

Hello KAG1LP2MDIAKITE. Unfortunately, I have marked this proposal as ineligible for funding, as it was formally proposed after the deadline. This deadline for Art+Feminism-related proposals was initially set for 15 January, and an extension was given until 17 January. I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 07:50, 30 January 2020 (UTC)Reply


Hello JethroBT (WMF) ok I take note and see you again. KAG1LP2MDIAKITE08:15, 30 January 2020 (UTC)Reply

Additional comments from WMF[edit]

Bonjour KAG1LP2MDIAKITE, thank you for resubmitting this request. I have reviewed your proposal and have the following initial comments and questions.

  • Are you applying on behalf of Wikimedians of Mali User Group? If so, please change the grant type accordingly.
  • Would you please push back your grant start date - February 15 - by roughly two weeks to allow time for grant processing?
  • Your detailed budget adds up to 1,725.32‬ USD, while your total budget is 1.875,32 USD. Please correct this discrepancy.
  • What is your target Wikimedia project? Please update the probox and include it.
  • It is unclear to me whether you are planning an edit-a-thon, a photowalk, or both. Would you please elaborate on the type of your event? If your event includes a photowalk, kindly specify the event location and type of images you will be taking.
  • Which photos will you be using to create the photo album? What is the purpose of printing a photo album?
  • In the impact section what do you mean by “100 photo articles created or improved”?
  • Which skills will you be training at your edit-a-thon?

Thank you again for your engagement in the Rapid Grant review process. Best regards, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 10:56, 18 February 2020 (UTC)Reply


Hello JethroBT (WMF) ok I take note and Here are my answers KAG1LP2MDIAKITE17:24, 18 February 2020 (UTC)Reply

No I apply with my own name, therefore individually since wikimedians of Mali user group has not become an association and does not have a bank account

Ok I postpone the date of the event which will now be from March 10, 2020 to April 30, 2020

Ok the budget gap has been corrected

Ok the theme for the photos is on: women artists and craftswomen (writers, photographers, dyers, seamstresses, dancers, hairdressers ect. the women beneficiaries will first follow a training on wikicommons then they will go to take photos then upload them on commons

These are the best photos that will be published in an album book and the book will be uploaded to digital commons and the physical book will be redistributed between women photographers during an award ceremony.

It will be 100 photos taken by upload on commons and which serve to create or modify articles on Wikipedia


Hello KAG1LP2MDIAKITE, thank you for your responses.

  • Please consider using the Outreach Dashboard to track the contributions of the participants.
  • Please ensure that the photos serve an encyclopedic purpose and are useful for other Wikimedia projects. Think about how you can increase their usage on other Wikimedia projects after your event.
  • When dealing with photographs of people, do not forget to follow Wikimedia Commons guideline on Photographs of identifiable people.

I am approving you grant request and looking forward to your quality images. Best regards, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 06:22, 20 February 2020 (UTC)Reply

Dépôt de rapport fin décembre 2020[edit]

Bonjour Le Mali à l'instar des autres pays ont été confrontés à la maladie du Covid 19 ce qui a fortement boulversé tous les agendas Aussi le Mali est confronté à l'insécurité Djihadiste et il n'ya pas très longtemps de longs mois de contestation soci-politiques qui a aboutit à un coup d'état militaire. C'est cela que nous avons pris du retard dans la réalisation de nos projets wikipédia Nous reprenons petit à petit nos activités et demandons fin décembre 2020 pour déposer nos rapports finaux Merci de vos compréhension --KAG1LP2MDIAKITE (talk) 17:06, 5 October 2020 (UTC)Reply
