Clarification requestEdit

Hi the Scholarship team has reviewed your application, we have some questions;

  • can please provide information about each community
    • where they are, why they cant be at the same event,
    • a breakdown of costs for each community,
  • The administration cost appears disproportionate to what is being provided to the community

Thank you on behalf of the Core Organising Team Gnangarra (talk) 05:50, 24 July 2021 (UTC)[]

Hello Gnangarra
  • Thank you for the questions. Below are the answers as requested:

Our community cuts across different regions in Ghana:

  1. Northern region- Dagbani Wikimedia User Group
  2. Eastern region- Frafra Wikimedia Community
  3. Central region- The University of Education Dagbani Wikipedia community
  4. Greater Accra region- Global Open Initiative
  • As stated on our meta page, The Dagbani Wikimedians UG is working to support 16 Mole-Dagbani languages from Ghana, Burkina and Bénin. The above selected communities are far away from each other, some will require several hours of travel be at the same event.
  • Although Dagbani Wikimedians and Global Open Initiative will be the only groups to have in-person meetups, that is, 2 pre-conference and 2 post-conference meetups, Childcare services (or similar family services),Data packages, Small hardware expenses to support access will be provided to participants across all the four groups.
  • Administration cost will be shared by the Dagbani Wikimedians UG and the Global Open Initiative for organizing the in-person meetups.Din-nani1 (talk) 16:19, 24 July 2021 (UTC)[]
