J'ai fais quelques corrections sur ta demande. Point important: les Rapid Grants, c'est jusqu'à 2000 dollars. Donc tu es au dessus du budget. Il faut alléger un peu. Sinon, très bien. Anthere (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 23:30, 7 November 2018 (UTC).
- Bien reçu
J'ai réajuste mon budget, est ce que je suit dans les normes (Anthere) pour savoir où placé nos pieds, étant donné qu'on tante des sensibilisation par là. Aboubacarkhoraa (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 17:38, 12 November 2018 (UTC).

AfroCine: Join the Months of African Cinema this October!
After a successful first iteration of the Months of African Cinema last year, we are happy to announce that it will be happening again this year, starting from October 1! In the 2018 edition of the contest, about 600 Wikipedia articles were created in at least 8 languages. There were also contributions to Wikidata and Wikimedia commons, which brought the total number of wikimedia pages created during the contest to over 1,000. About 9 in-person events were also organised for the edit-a-thon in different parts of the world.
The contest is organized by a Wikimedia project called The AfroCine Project, which is dedicated to improving the coverage of the history, works, people, places, and events, that are associated with the cinema, theatre and arts of Africa, African countries, the Caribbean, and the diaspora.
If you would love to join this exciting event, please list your username as a participant on the English Wikipedia contest page. If you would love to lead this contest for your country or community, please list your name in the coordinators' page here. The rapid grants team would be accepting proposals throughout October and November, in case you'd need funds to run local edit-a-thons or some other activities related to this event. Upon listing your name on the coordinators' page, you'd be contacted to talk about the resources you'd need to run the event in your community. You can also contact me directly for any clarifications.
Finally, We also need volunteers to handle some aspects of the AfroCine project. These aspects include:
- Community Liaison: This role essentially involves closely engaging with local communities to support their activities within the scope of Afrocine.
- Communications: This involves the communications aspects of the project. Sharing relevant information on mailing lists and social media would be the responsibility of this person.
- MAC Jury: This role involves joining the jury of Months of African Cinema contest. We need as many people as we can get 🙂.
- Tools: Going forward, we would need relevant tools to better track the metrics and also analyse the general impact of these events. We are calling for Wikimedia volunteers who can navigate wikimedia tools that can be useful for the project.
If you would love to help with any of these roles, or some other roles that have not been mentioned, please contact me directly or on: samoye_hotmail.com
If you have further questions, complaints, suggestions, etc., please reach out to me personally or right here or the project talkpages.

Lingualibre is a Wikimedia France project which aim to record words in various languages, so I can be turned into practical workshop on the ground. Wikimedia France wish to expand Lingualibre's usage is Africa and non-Western countries. Indian usage is raising right now, more is to come hopefully.
