Explain your planEdit

Currently I am an active Wikimedia who organizes and leads editathons (as La mujer que nunca conociste) and workshops related to Wikimedia projects in Bolivia. I’m a co-founder of the proposed user group Wikimedistas de Bolivia. I am also a member and board member of the Wikimujeres User Group, and Mujeres latinoamericanas en Wikipedia I am a strong believer in reducing the digital divide in Bolivia, as well as the gender gap across the Wikimedia Movement. I also contribute to other free knowledge projects like OpenStreetMap also being part of https://geochicas.org/ Geochicas. I’m also joining as a founding member of the proposed User Group for Latin American indigenous languages.

I have also attended various movements events such as WikiWomenCamp, Wikimedia Conference 2018, and have been selected as a scholarship recipient for Wikimania 2018 in Cape Town. I also facilitated a Strategy Salon in 2017 in Cochabamba with members of various indigenous communities of Bolivia regarding their participation in the Wikimedia movement.

I had been utilizing my ten year-old personal laptop tethering my mobile phone as a modem. Unfortunately, during my travels to Berlin for WMCon 2018, my laptop died and the technician informed me that it wouldn’t be worth repairing due to its old age. And also recently, my smartphone was stolen in the city of El Alto. Not having this equipment has made it difficult for me to continue editing and coordinating my numerous Wikimedia-related activities.

  1.   Strong support - During this time that Olga has been without equipment, her absence online has been felt on the mailing list, Telegram channels, and the ability to respond timely to emails. She is such a key member of the coordination team for Wikimedians of Bolivia and this hardware would allow her to continue her important role to advance the work of the group here in Bolivia. --Barrioflores (talk) 10:58, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
  2.   Strong support - Olga is a vital part of Wikimedistas de Bolivia. Not only does she work on wiki, but she also handles Twitter and Facebook accounts for our organization. She has recently had to return the laptop she was using to work on the projects because it belonged to the institution where whe worked. Now, coordination is much more difficult and this is slowing down the development of our projects (namely wikicafé, and WLM 2018 to name some). I really hope she can get back on her feet and keep contributing to the projects. alhen Did you call, sir? 15:11, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
