Comments from WMF
Hello Melkhayes, thank you for submitting this rapid grant request and for organizing Art and Feminism edit-a-thons in Northern Ireland. I have reviewed your proposal and have the following comments and questions.
- I noted that your total budget is only 325 USD (250 GBP). Per our Guidelines and Criteria Rapid Grant requests must be at least $500 USD. Your grant request is currently ineligible for funding. In order to bring it to eligibility I suggest expanding your event and budget. If you choose to update your budget and project, please make the necessary changes on the proposal page by February 10, 2020. Otherwise, I will have to change the status of your request to "not eligible".
- Have you been able to find experienced editors who will support you at edit-a-thons? If yes, could you kindly provide their usernames? Please note that we cannot fund this request until we can see that there are experienced editors able to support the participants at the event.
Thank you again for your contributions to the Wikimedia Movement! Best regards, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 08:19, 6 February 2020 (UTC)

Hello Melkhayes. I have marked this proposal as "not funded" because a grant agreement was not successfully completed for this proposal. I have contacted you over e-mail with more information and guidance on next steps. I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 22:50, 3 March 2020 (UTC)
