Wikimedia Funded Grants[edit]

The projects listed here are the projects funded under the Rapid Grants Program of the Wikimedia Foundation. These projects are all under the individual type grant since this group is not yet eligible to request funding as a group.


The SheSaid Philippines is an initiative of Filipino volunteers aimed at improving the visibility of women by creating new quote entries or improving existing quotations associated with them. This is in participation for the international SheSaid drive of Wiki Loves Women.
The aim is to recruit more volunteers to engage in the movement and inspire them to devote their skills to developing the Wiki projects.
This series of translate-a-thons, photowalks, and talks will be part of the #WikiForHumanRights22. An iteration of last year's Wiki para sa Karapatan Pantawo 2021, this project aims to translate to Tagalog and Central Bikol high-quality English Wikipedia articles that tackle climate change, biodiversity loss, and pollution. This is to increase articles that allow access to neutral, fact-based, and current information about our Right to Healthy Environment. Community visits and photo walks will also be conducted to document environmental issues that are faced by the local community. Lastly, this project aims to improve the accuracy of Bikol Translation Tool by polishing all Bikol translations produced during Wiki para sa Karapatan Pantawo 2021 – 2022 campaign period.
The project will be a series of edit-a-thons in Central Bikol Wiktionary with a focus on incorporating audio recordings reproduced on both Lingua Libre and Spell4Wiki application. The Capacity building and Meet-ups of local Campaign Organizers and editors will be a space for strategic planning, collaborative learning, and building partnerships with mission-aligned organizations.


The SheSaidPH2021 is an initiative of Filipino volunteers aimed at improving the visibility of women by creating new quote entries or improving existing quotations associated with them. This is in participation for the international SheSaid drive of Wiki Loves Women.This project aims to conduct a series of edit-a-thons both online and offline. The focus will be on improving content about Filipino women on Wikiquote, Wikisambit, and Wikikawikaan.
Promotion of the Central Bikol Wikipedia through the distribution of translated Reading Wikipedia in the classroom modules. The modules contain instructional activities on creating accounts and editing articles. The landing site of the activities will be directed to Central Bikol Wikipedia. This project includes the promotion of Reading Wikipedia in the classroom to educational institutions through module distribution, awareness through the installation of tarpaulins, and handing out free brochures containing relevant information with regards Wikipedia.
This project is a series of informal meet-ups to conduct edit-a-thons for the wikiprojects under incubation. For this year, this project will focus on improving Wikisambit and Wikikawikaan, the Wikiquote platforms for Central Bikol and Tagalog languages.
This is in participation of the international campaign of Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos 2021. Our local Wikipedia projects will benefit from these edits through the uploading of appropriate photos for existing articles. The main objective of this project is for our local Wikipedia Projects to be involved in this international campaign. Articles will certainly be improved since they will be provided with the right photos supporting the article itself. The accumulated photos that are all available on Wikimedia Commons will find their place in articles located in Wikipedia. A stub article is common in our local Wikipedia, then adding a photo for it is another step of improving those stub articles.
This series of edit-a-thons will be part of the #WikiForHumanRights 2021. This is to increase content with regard to human rights, environmental health, and diverse communities impacted by environmental issues around the world and provide awareness through a simple lecture on how to protect and maintain healthy ecosystems. One of the project goals is to invite new editors with the same advocacy on preserving a healthy environment and prospect editors coming from different civic organizations for human rights.
Program -1lib1ref.jpg
The #1Lib1Ref campaign is hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation and supported by the Wikipedia Library Team and Wikimedia Affiliates around the world. Twice per year, volunteers add references to a Wikipedia article. This project is a parallel campaign of the #1Lib1Ref that invites librarians in the Philippines to join this initiative. This project invited Bicol Region Librarians, recruited new librarians to be editors, added new references to the articles on Bikol Sentral Wikipedia, added and improved content on the Bikol Sentral Wikipedia.
This project is focused on continuing the objectives of the previous year's Art & Feminism in the Philippines by adding and improving content in Wikipedia, Wiki Commons, and other Wiki projects with regards the Art and Feminism, not only limited in the Philippines but throughout the world.
This is a series of in-person events that focuses on translating articles on climate change events especially in the Philippines using the content translation tool of the Central Bikol Wikipedia. This project will give more focus on the typhoons that heavily impacted the country's history and economic development. This will both help promote awareness of the climate history of the country as a guide for disaster preparedness and will also provide a good avenue of recruiting new editors and promoting Wikipedia to college and senior high school students.


This project focuses on adding new entries in the Bikol Wiktionary, improving the previous content, and inviting editors to do vocabulary contributions. This project aims to recruit new editors, will encourage mostly local Bikolano writers since they have an advanced skills in the language usage, increase skills for existing editors fix word orthography and add new word meaning based on reliable Bikol language references.
This is an online promotion that gives emphasis on the Wikimedia-based projects as a free resource for remote learning in the Philippines. When the entire country was put under the enhanced community quarantine, educators are forced to convert the traditional way of teaching into remote access learning. As a developing country, we are not prepared for this kind of teaching-learning environment. The main objective of this project is to equip teachers with free online teaching and learning resources through the use of Wikimedia-based projects. We will give emphasis on the use of the Philippine language Wikipedia such as Bikol Sentral, Cebuano, and Tagalog Wikipedia. We will also give an overview of other useful Wikimedia projects such as Wikimedia Commons, Wikibooks, etc.
This proposal aims to add new content with regard the Art & Feminism in the Philippines. This is also to improve existing articles related to Arts and Feminism in the Philippines. This project focuses on recruiting new editors, increasing the skills for existing editors and improving existing content, and adding new translations about art and feminism in the Bikol language.


This project hopes to promote the development of Bikol Sentral Wiktionary, recruit editors to be trainers of editors. The trainers will facilitate future edit-a-thons efficiently and organized. Bikol Sentral Wiktionary is currently in incubator status. However, the demand for a free source for Bikol Sentral words is high due to the transition of the Philippine Educational system to mother tongue-based languages as a medium of instruction.
