Hello Florence,

I just wanted to say that this look great. I think we can find great
synergy effects here, since WMSE also is doing some work in Uganda in 2014.
Firstly, we are, through the help of WWF, sending two volunteers on a
train-the-trainers program in mid January to mid February. Secondly, we are
sponsoring some of the infra structure in this Wikipedia center:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IEG/Mbazzi_Village_writes_Wikipedia (and
the IEG looks really promising too). When do you think you will have the
WiC on the ground?

*Med vänliga hälsningar,Jan Ainali*

> (*) After much thinking, we decided to name the people we are looking for,
> "WiC" as in Wikipedian in Community rather than Wikipedian in Residence as
> previously. Our reasoning was that in most cases, WiR are typically
> Wikipedians "planted" in institutional context (Museums, libraries etc.)
> whilst we wanted to avoid this situation and get us to focus on people or
> communities (already-existing or to-be-created). Hence the new name.
> Thanks
