OverviewEdit

1. In order to support community review, please provide a brief description of your organization's work in the upcoming funding period.

Wikimedia Argentina has faced a complicated and challenging context. In consequence, we have developed a planning based on specific principles, which guarantees: stability, flexibility, innovation, and efficiency.

  • Stabilizing our current lines of work in order to guarantee the continuity and consolidation of our programs.
  • Designing a contextualized and flexible planning, easily adaptable to context changes.
  • Developing innovative projects that promote cooperation, knowledge transfer, skills and, resources.
  • Develop a planning that is feasible and workable.

Programs

We have defined 3 strategic axes - Promote Knowledge equity, Capacity Building and Skills development, and Resources and Cooperation-  which will be implemented through 3 different programs Education & Human Rights Program, Culture & Open Knowledge Program, and Cooperation & Inclusion Program. Also, we will continue working to strengthen the area of Communication, outreach and new audiences, cross-cutting to all our programs.

Regional cooperation

Our commitment with LATAM  is a priority for Wikimedia Argentina and our work with the region is present in each of our programs. In 2021, we will work to continue supporting the development and growth of Latin American communities. In order to achieve this, we will collaborate on assessing the needs, will open new cooperation opportunities, and share and distribute our resources in a more efficient way to strengthen regional capacities on different topics - according to our needs. We will also foster the strategy implementation.

Also, and as a pilot project, during 2021 we will promote a project with a global outreach, to identify peers and mentors, and learn from others with the long-term goal of boosting a better and greater cooperation among Wikimedia communities.

Strategy 2030

Wikimedia Argentina will continue to be involved and committed to the development and implementation of the 2030 strategy. The organization has defined local priorities, as well as global priorities - defined here, of which we expect to be actively involved in 2021.

Organizational sustainability

We will work towards building a more sustainable and resilient organization. To this end, we will improve the capacities of the team to boost the development of more distributed, sustainable and cross-cutting leadership and the capacity of WMAR in fundraising and advocacy - among other issues.  

Last but not least, we will prioritize above all the health and wellbeing of the team.

4. How does your organization know what community members and contributors to online projects need or want? Does your organization conduct needs assessments or consult the contributors and volunteers most involved with its work?

Wikimedia Argentina defines its community from a broad and inclusive perspective. Apart from our work with the Spanish -online and offline- community, during 2020 we worked more than ever in identifying, analyzing, and assessing the needs and interests of our communities (long-term editors, new editors, volunteers) and program beneficiaries to design relevant initiatives for them in this context and that can be summarized as follows:

Local and regional communities:

  • Regional feedback: Projects with a regional scope have been previously discussed with the communities involved and will always be carried out in cooperation and mutual collaboration.
  • Monthly meetings and General Assembly: Wikimedia Argentina holds monthly meetings with its Board. These meetings are open to the whole community, and travel allowances are paid for those community members who wish to attend. The current annual plan has been designed along with our local community and has been approved during our General Assembly, October 10th.
  • Mentoring and support encounters: we carried out online meetings for our local community which has allowed us to get to know their interests. This proposal also reflects their interests, demands and needs.
  • Wikimedia Argentina's members email list: Wikimedia Argentina has an email list to interact with its members, through which we share each new activity or any news regarding the Wikimedia movement. Our members also use this channel to give us their feedback regarding our activities.


Newcomers and beneficiaries:

  • Education & Human Rights Program: during 2020, 100% of the participants (+400) that took the survey of our training proposals - webinars and Wikipuentes- defined them as relevant to help the educational continuity  during the pandemic and 70% replied that our projects are adapted to the context. Regarding the design of new offline resources, 70% of the educators that received them (300) asked to be sent the printed booklets, which helps determine the importance of designing proposals for contexts without internet access. Also, there was an emerging issue during the development of all our initiatives: 80% of participants said they needed tools or training to improve their knowledge regarding digital rights, privacy and digital safety. This will be one of our lines of work during 2021.
  • Culture & Open Knowledge: during 2020, we carried out surveys aimed at staff from libraries, archives, museums and other cultural institutions. +1500 professionals and + 100 cultural institutions participated. 100% of the participants said they were interested in new training opportunities on digitization projects (33,6%), Wikimedia Commons (83,8%), Wikidata (58,6%), Wikipedia (48%) and on free licenses and intellectual property (37%). Survey respondents said that learning on these topics would improve the quality of their daily work processes. They also emphasized the need to generate spaces for knowledge transfer and cooperation. This information lays down solid bases to develop activities and work alliances in 2021
  • Cooperation and Inclusion (of communities): this program has engaged around 700 participants of which +400 have participated in our training and gender activities. Almost half of those, participated in our editing activities for new editors, where we involved long term editors as mentors, with good reception. On the other hand, 100% of participants in gender proposals think our workshops were  excellent/very good and 90% said they would participate in new training spaces. These will be two of the lines of work to be strengthened during 2021.

MetricsEdit

Grantee metrics

Education & Rights

  • Diversity: % of improved and created content to narrow the existing gaps as gender, local history and Human Right
  • Impact: people mentored/trained through our new education proposals

Culture & Open Knowledge Program

  • Diversity: % of content from endangered and underrepresented heritage
  • Impact: # number of new counterparts as a result from our cultural training program

Cooperation and Inclusion Program

  • Diversity: number of new women and people from historically excluded communities actively involved in our activities.
  • Impact: # of mentored and supported, especially emerging, communities at a regional scale

Metrics 2020-2021

Total metrics Participants Newly registered Content pages Diversity Impact
Education & Rights Program 3500 500 1200 30% content created 2000 trained/mentored
Culture & Open Knowledge Program 2000 250 At least 80,000 15% of content released 10 new counterparts
Cooperation and Inclusion Program 700 300 6000 At least 300 At least 5 communities

Additional information regarding our metrics: More than ever our metrics are tentative. Each program has its own defined and flexible metrics to adapt to possible adverse situations. Likewise, the importance of these metrics may be altered depending on the limitations of the future context; this is notably relevant, per example, for the culture program and its digitization project, whose content release work depends on keeping cultural institutions open to workers.

Strategy 2021Edit

The 3 programs of Wikimedia Argentina respond to the following 3 major strategic axes, adapted during 2021:

  • Knowledge equity: Creating diverse, reliable and underrepresented knowledge to guarantee that knowledge is locally relevant for Argentina communities.
  • Capacity Building & Skills development: Developing skills, strengthening capacities, tools and internal knowledge to promote and build a learning-oriented Wikimedia Movement, to help advance current and future communities
  • Resources & Cooperation (to boost innovation): Facilitate cooperation and resources to strengthen the construction of a more innovative, diverse, and distributed Wikimedia Movement

These 3 strategic axes allow us to adapt and contextualize our programs to foster continuity and sustainability of our work and keep supporting the development and engagement of local communities; also at the regional and global level, in a comprehensive way.

Programs 2021Edit

Education and Human Rights Program

Background

The education and human rights program of Wikimedia Argentina has a local and regional scope and responds to all the projects and activities that we carry out with educators, students, human rights organizations and established and emerging Wikimedia organizations at the regional level. It aims to train, support and promote the use of Wikimedia projects in educational contexts; to create locally relevant and under represented knowledge to guarantee a diverse and equitable representation of the Global South in the Wikimedia projects; and to mentor and develop educational and Human Rights projects at the regional level by collaborating with the Latin American and Caribbean chapters of the Wikimedia movement.

Although 2020 has been a very complex year, we have been able to expand and reach our goals and respond with innovative projects to the critical state of education in Argentina.

During 2021 we will work to adapt, expand and design suitable proposals to strengthen the development, growth and sustainability of education and human rights communities at a local and regional level, as well as to generate and share learnings in the Wikimedia movement.


Context

To design this planning we carried out a context assessment, which can be found here. This analysis helped us establish the following forecasts that will define our work in 2021:

  • The implementation of the program in both online and offline formats will continue throughout 2021. We will generate a flexible and contextualized program, with projects that can easily adapt to the challenges and opportunities of a very unequal context.
  • The needs of educators to incorporate new digital skills and strengthen their capabilities will remain stable, as they are able to adapt their curricula to a scenario that remains very uncertain.
  • Face-to-face activities may be a possibility in Argentina but are still difficult to happen at a regional level in a short term; strengthening, supporting and mentoring online will remain fundamental to boost the development, growth and sustainability of communities in matters of education and Human Rights.


Program 2021

According to the context and based on our 3 lines of work, we defined the following goals and activities for 2021:


Goals and activities 2021

Goal Activities: during 2021 we will Primary Audience
Involve educators and human rights communities in the creation of high-quality and locally relevant knowledge in Argentina.

Culture & Open Knowledge Program

Background


The Culture and Open knowledge program includes all the activities we carry out with archives, museums, cultural institutions, international and governmental organizations aiming to release local cultural heritage and promote the incorporation of open access and digitizing policies among cultural institutions in Argentina, to improve the diversity of the Wikimedia projects.

However and due to the context, the program has been significantly redefined during 2020. This, has resulted in the setting new priorities as to foster our training and mentoring proposals; to strengthen our advocacy work on open access and digitizing policies or to guarantee that knowledge is accessible in an equitable manner in Argentina. This approach has allow us to become a strong, meaningful and trusted partner for cultural institutions from Argentina.

With the aim of developing these priorities further, during 2021 we will work to increase the representativeness of Argentine culture in the Wikimedia projects, create new learning, mentoring and cooperation opportunities, and build a new cultural network to bring more diversity to the Wikimedia Movement.


Context

To design this planning we carried out a context assessment, which can be found here. This analysis helped us establish the following forecasts that will define our work in 2021:

  • The needs to incorporate new skills, knowledge and resources will remain fundamental, as cultural institutions will continue to prioritize their digital and online strategy next year.
  • Cultural institutions will work to make their collections accessible, so strengthening mentorship and advocate for open access policies and digitizing projects will continue be a priority.
  • Budgets will not increase during 2021; in a context of limited resources, similar challenges and common needs, creating networks of cooperation and support is a key to guarantee the sustainability, resilience and growth of cultural institutions and communities.


Program 2021

According to the context and based on our 3 lines of work, we defined the following goals and activities for 2021:


Goals and activities 2021

Goal Activities: during 2021 we will Primary Audience
Foster the access and release of local cultural heritage in order to create and improve the representation of the Argentine culture in the Wikimedia projects.
  • Expand and amplify the scope of our digitization project on a national scale in order to preserve, release and improve the diversity regarding local culture in the Wikimedia projects. For it, we will also directly involve the cultural communities we work with as new editors and content creators.
  • Along with UNESCO (ASPNet), promote our work about education on heritage to guarantee that access to knowledge is really egalitarian for the whole citizenship, regardless of their resources, location or access to the internet.
  • (New) Allocate resources to preserve and release underrepresented heritage and increase knowledge equity within the Wikimedia projects. We will focus our new partners and our Technical Support Fund on institutions with collections that incorporate historically silenced and/or dissident voices.

Cooperation & Inclusion Program


Background

Our Diverse Communities program has undergone important changes in 2020 that have translated into the reformulation of the program to Cooperation and Inclusion (of communities) program, for the following reasons:

  • to help support, expand and diversify our local community: long term editors, new editors, current and future volunteers and partners.
  • to help advance regional communities by creating with and for them new projects, networks of support and opportunities for collaboration.
  • to help building a more inclusive Wikimedia Movement by promoting new cooperation opportunities.

Although due to the context we faced important challenges that have reduced time of a portion of our community, this new approach has allowed us to train, mentor and support our local community accordingly, create locally relevant content, strengthen our outreach, involve more women in our activities and improve our collaboration at the regional level.

With the aim of developing these priorities further, during 2021 we will adapt and create new projects to expand, diversify and build a more inclusive local community, support the growth and sustainability of current and future regional communities and create new opportunities to collaborate and learn within the Wikimedia Movement.


Context

To design this planning we carried out a context assessment, which can be found here. This analysis helped us establish the following forecasts that will define our work in 2021:

  • In a context of (possible) lock-down, where the media and the Internet are key to maintaining contact with the outside world, creating and making accessible verifiable, reliable and locally relevant information to citizens becomes a priority.
  • Most volunteers are connected to the Internet all day and need to redefine their spaces for resting. In this context, creating proposals that favor learning, leisure and socialization are critical, especially for women who have been directly affected by this "new normality" that has highlighted gender inequalities in Argentina.
  • Although we can not meet face to face, working online erases distances and generates new possibilities of articulation, cooperation and assistance among communities at all levels.


Program 2021

According to the context and based on our 3 lines of work, we defined the following goals and activities for 2021:


Objectives & activities 2021

Goal Activities: during 2021 we will Primary Audience
Promote Wikimedia projects as tools for access to updated and locally relevant information.
  • Establish long-term, sustainable partnerships with a diverse range of organizations, communities and experts to create, review, and update relevant information for society.
  • (New) Carry out a research on content gaps to identify content that is relevant for the citizenry in Argentina. This project will also help us develop meaningful partnership and content creation projects accordingly.
  • Civil society organizations. Special focus on SDG.
  • Experts on topical issues
  • New and long-term editors
Promote new learning and support networks to foster the development of a welcoming, diverse and inclusive local community.
  • Promote our community as a space for training, mutual support, socialization and belonging.
  • Keep developing training, supporting and socializing activities for our local community
  • Strengthen our mentoring program and design appropriate resources to favor the onboarding, inclusion and retention of newcomers, involving our long-term members as mentors. Focus on promoting the equal representation and participation of women and other gender identities.
  • (New) Design a new training and skills development program in Argentina, to address the challenges of the Wikimedia movement and projects, regarding gender and diversity. We aim to get our local community more committed to an inclusive movement.
  • (New) Carry out an analysis on how people use and participate in Wikipedia. We will focus mainly in newcomers' experiences to identify the barriers they face that hinder the growth, diversity and renewal of our local community.
  • Women, other gender identities and underrepresented communities
  • Local leaders and volunteers
  • Newcomers, new editors
  • Long-term editors
Develop the resources and support needed to strengthen and grow regional cooperation and communities.


  • Continue cooperating with the region in a comprehensive way: support, mentoring, allocate resources, grants etc. as well as regarding the implementation of the strategy 2030.
  • (New) Improve the management of internal knowledge at a regional scale to efficiently promote learning transfer and resources. Among other activities, we will expand the community resources platform with a description of regional projects and fundraising opportunities, two needs detected during 2020.

Table 5 notes: If your organization has significant funding other than FDC funds, please note how those funds will be used.


Wikimedia Argentina has had a certain diversity of funds to carry out its activities since 2017. During 2020, most of the grants call have focused on reducing the inequalities and new poverty gaps in Latin America due to the Covid. Even so, we tried all the opportunities we had, without luck. One of the 2021 objectives is to be able to expand and improve our local fundraising capacity, a priority to which we have allocated resources. Diversifying our funds is a priority for Wikimedia Argentina.

Operating reserves: current and upcoming yearsEdit

Please note that there is a policy that places restrictions on how much FDC funding your organization can use to build its operating reserves. If you would like to use FDC funding to for your organization's reserves, you must note that here. You will not be able to decide to allocate FDC funding from this grant to your reserves at a later date.

1. What is your plan for maintaining, building, or spending your reserves in the current year and the upcoming funding period? Please use the table below to show the amounts in your reserves at the beginning, year-to-date, and end of your current year, and the amount you plan to have in your reserves by the end of the upcoming funding period.

Table 6

Year Year start Year start (US) Year-to-date Year-to-date (US) Year end Year end (US)
Current year (e.g. 2017) 3,327,500 ARS 55,000 USD (***) 4,413,750 ARS 55,000 USD (*) 4,763,000 ARS 55,000 USD (**)
Upcoming year (e.g. 2018) - - - - ARS (****) 55,000 USD

(*) The currency exchange rate for the moment we decided the amount of reserves was situated in $60,50 = $1 dollar

(**) Now, as the exchange rate has fluctuated, the same amount of argentine pesos represents a lower level of reserves in dollars. The current exchange rate is $80,25 = $1 dollar

(***) The exchange rate estimated for January 2021 is situated in $86,6 = $1 dollar

(****) Wikimedia Argentina does not know which would be the exchange rate for the end of 2021. So we intend to maintain the level of reserves in dollars.

2. How much FDC funding is your organization requesting to add to your reserves in the upcoming funding period? If you are not requesting any FDC funding to add to your reserves in the upcoming funding period, you can write zero.

The term “political or legislative activities” includes any activities relating to political campaigns or candidates (including the contribution of funds and the publication of position statements relating to political campaigns or candidates); voter registration activities; meetings with or submissions and petitions to government executives, ministers, officers or agencies on political or policy issues; and any other activities seeking government intervention or policy implementation (like “lobbying”), whether directed toward the government or the community or public at large. General operating support through the FDC may not be used to cover political and legislative activities, although you may make a separate grant agreement with the WMF for these purposes.
