Eligibility Issue[edit]

Hello Jadnapac, at this point we're unable to move forward with this grant request because your group has an overdue report. We're hoping to receive this report for Art and Feminism. In case you're able to get that to us quickly I will leave this proposal open and also leave my questions for your AfroCine editathon below so we can move it forward once it's resolved. Please let me know how you would like to proceed. Best regards, WJifar (WMF) (talk) 19:18, 22 November 2019 (UTC)

Questions on proposal[edit]

Hello Jadnapac, thank you for submitting this proposal. We have a few questions before we move forward with a decision. 1.What are your design plans for the banner? We prefer to fund banners when they are designed in such a way that groups can reuse them at future events.

  • Hello WJifar (WMF), We are intending to have a burner since its a new projects to be done in Tanzania hence is one of the way to raise awareness and branding.The banner can be reused every year by altering the specific theme of each year.Jadnapac (talk) 18:07, 29 November 2019 (UTC)

2.We consider t-shirts a high-cost, low-impact item and therefore ask that you either remove them from your budget or reduce their number to 5 only. If you decide to keep them in your budget please also include in your application the criteria you will use to decide how to award them, since they are listed as prizes.

  • In order to get good quality content we thought t-shirts may be used both as a way of branding and event as well to motivate the contributors. I will add to the application the criteria which will be used to award these t-shirts.Thank you for your cost concern, then we can reduce it to the advised number or below.Jadnapac (talk) 18:07, 29 November 2019 (UTC)

3.Can you list the three people you are budgeting for, for long-distance travel?

  • The three people coming from outside Dar es Salaam who will join the Dar es salaam Wikimedians are Otto Nyongole, Magoiga Mtatiro and Ebenezer Mlay Jadnapac (talk) 18:07, 29 November 2019 (UTC)
