[edit] Funding

An estimated 15 projects a year is (max) R30,000 a year.

On the board meeting in November 2012, we discussed how this can be funded:

  • Regranting system: We get a source of funds (e.g. from WMF) which we can use for small projects.
  • Dumisani and Isla are membors of the WMF "Flow funding" pilot project: they will use this to fund projects.
  • Use the term "competitions" to solicit grant applications for small grants (e.g. "win a camera" for best grant proposal)
  • Workshops for winning groups (e.g. winning school; Municipality can sponsor prizes) - needs a lot of work from us!
  • For schools projects, one of the issues is that it is hard to edit Wikipedia: need funding to support training efforts.
