1.We are two team leaders Shantanu and Bhavesh, we have experience of community building in Status wallet India and Dfinity India. Along with that we have 10 moderators who overlook the day to day functioning of our community on various social platforms 24Ă—7.
2. As most of the web3 content is available in English it is untouched by the people in tier2 cities and villages , we intend to make content in regional languages and in easy way to bring them closer to the web3 and Graph ecosystem.

Hi, yes thank you, that’s very helpful. I like to hear more about this proposal and possibly setup a time to speak about it in the future in order to further break down the milestones you’ve listed. Personally, I’d like to see some existing advocates that are on board with supporting this effort as well. Are you currently engaged with advocates on our discord?

Sure. We can connect over a meet or Zoom call . We can explain rest of the things there.

Unfortunately, this grant proposal did not generate the level of support in the community to move it to the next phase of the grant application process.

Thank you for submitting this proposal and you are encouraged to stay engaged in the Graph community. You are also welcome to submit new grant applications in the future with proposals that may generate stronger community support.
