around African women stories.

Dear African Wikimedians,
As you may already know, this year's WikiIndaba
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiIndaba_conference_2023> is scheduled
for November 3-5, 2023, in Agadir, Morocco. In addition to the main event,
we're embracing a hybrid model that includes both virtual and localized
in-person gatherings across Africa. To foster community engagement on a
local level, we are pleased to offer micro-grants to Wikimedia communities
across the continent.
Wikimedia communities across Africa are warmly invited to apply for
micro-grants of up to $300 <https://w.wiki/7V3W>. These funds are
intended to support the organization of local events or meet-ups where
participants can virtually attend and interact with live-streamed and
pre-recorded sessions of the main WikiIndaba conference. Whether you plan
to set up a community meet-up, a workshop, or even a hackathon mirroring
the larger event, the choice and format are yours—feel free to innovate or
draw inspiration from successful projects in other communities
Who is eligible?
Applications and subsequent reports can be submitted in Arabic, French, or
English. While we welcome applications from all African locations,
underrepresented communities or groups will receive priority consideration.
What should your application contain?
Each application should feature a detailed event schedule, a list of
prospective local partners, biographies of your organizing team, and a
thorough budget outline. A review panel will evaluate applications on a
rolling basis, with decisions based on the overall quality of the
proposals. Successful applicants will need to sign a formal agreement,
specifying grant deliverables and outcomes, and provide essential contact
and banking details.
When to apply, and how funds are allocated?
Micro-grants will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis until
the fund is fully exhausted. After the fund is depleted, we will not be
able to consider further applications. Early submissions stand a better
chance of approval, with the final application deadline set for October 8,
What expenses can the micro-grant cover?
Your micro-grant could typically cover costs related to:
Rental of an event venue
Internet connectivity fees and data vouchers
Minor transportation expenditures
Certificates of attendance
Custom printed materials and promotional items
Light refreshments for attendees
We eagerly anticipate your active involvement to make WikiIndaba 2023 a
