Can you share any information about current/past web3 experience?:
Leveraging my expertise and passion for Web3, I’ve made significant contributions to two major Web3 protocols: Arweave and the Helium Network. I also serve as the unofficial Helium Foundation local representative in Kenya.
Prior Experience & Key Achievements:

  1. Helium Network & Community Building:
    • Building Web 3, Internet of Things (particularly, LoRaWAN), and Blockchain solutions for a globally decentralized peer-to-peer Internet of things.
    • Helped to build the Helium Network infrastructure in Kenya in preparation for permissionless use by various IoT devices as a substitute to the expensive and highly restrictive traditional telecommunication industries’ cellular networks.
    • As the Helium Foundation’s local representative, I actively participated in building a vibrant community in Kenya, going from no presence in Kenya to now a thriving community of hundreds of IoT and Web 3 enthusiasts. Growing this community was only possible through a combination of organizing and managing online and in-person meet-up events for the Helium community in Kenya.

As the unofficial Helium Foundation local representative in Kenya, I’ve been instrumental in establishing and nurturing a thriving Helium community in the region.
Successfully transformed a virtually non-existent Helium community into a dynamic and engaged ecosystem of miners, developers, and enthusiasts.
Organized and hosted community meetup events, educational workshops, and networking sessions to foster relationships and knowledge-sharing within the Helium Network community.
2. Arweave Protocol Community Development:
Played a pivotal role in expanding the Arweave community in Kenya by cultivating a strong developer ecosystem.
Organized and facilitated developer workshops and hackathons, inspiring local developers to build decentralized applications (dApps) on the Arweave platform.
Collaborated closely with the Arweave core team to align community initiatives with project goals.
Established Arweave as a recognized and respected technology within the Kenyan tech community.
3. Founder of the Artemisia Projekt:
My passion for web3 led me to creating an outfit for, primarily, accelerating the adoption of Web 3 in underserved markets through community building and management.
Led a multidisciplinary team in devising innovative strategies to bridge the accessibility gap and raise awareness about the potential of Web3 in emerging economies.
Collaborated with local and international partners to drive impactful projects aimed at empowering individuals and communities through decentralized technology.
At Artemisia Projekt, our key focus is on working with projects that align with our core principle of democratizing access to global and borderless finance to unbanked and under-banked communities. By leveraging the power of Blockchain technology, we aim to leapfrog emerging and frontier markets into a future of borderless finance.

Skills and Expertise:
Community Development: Proficient in building and managing engaged Web3 communities.

Hello, thank you for taking time to read through the proposal and to respond to your question:
i.) For the Helium Network, I participated in building the underlying, decentralized network of nodes in Kenya. Being the first individual to own and operate the Helium geteways in Kenya, I was tasked with developing a community; moving from a non-existent community to now a vibrant one, still working and deploying gateways to expand the network. Technically, the community is not a developers’ community rather Helium enthusiasts working together. Now we have an engaged community of Helium users on Discord.
ii.) Just started working with the Arweave Protocol a couple of months ago and so far we’ve organized a general community meet-up for Arweavers in Nairobi. The next upcoming event (coming up 3 days from now) is exclusively a dev event for exploring the applications of Arweave in data storage; particularly for devs and more tech savvy users. The event also gives attendees the opportunity to come up with ideas to build apps on the Arweave protocol. Working in collaboration with other community developers in various countries in Africa, now we have a Telegram community of about 200 new Arweavers from Africa.

Greetings @doxe01.eth
i) To foster a sustainable community, I intend to periodically organize virtual office hours and Twitter spaces for devs interested to utilize and build on The Graph. Also, subject to approval from the DAO voters and the grants committee, I was thinking of organizing, bounties and hackathons for interested devs.
ii.) The Kenyan dev community is awash with untapped talent due to lack of opportunities. Organizing such events gives them motivation, experiential learning and exposure to the broader global web3 ecosystem. I am sure there are many web3 companies that could use the devs’ skills. I like to view this project as a way to give these devs visibility and create a marriage between the companies and the talent. For each project/protocol I work with, I am keen on identifying any opportunities that could benefit deserving and skilled devs that actively participate in our hackathons, office hours, and workshops.

Expenditure: we’ll use the funds to pay for venue rental fees, The Graph-branded merchandise and gifts to the attendees and light snacks/refreshments for the attendees. We hope to organize monthly workshops of 10-15 devs; so I project that $450 should be sufficient for those expenses.

  • To ensure that the funding is used efficiently and effectively, I’ll keep record of the expenses and receipts.

Goals and achievements; I don’t understand if the goals and achievements should be specific to The Graph; so I’ll respond generally:
i.) Planning and hosting Arweave dev workshop
ii.) Planning, promoting and hosting Arweave general meetup in Mombasa, Kenya for Arweave enthusiasts in the Coastal region of Kenya.

  • To measure the progress of the project; I outlined a couple of KPIs in the proposal but I’ll recap them here with brevity:
  1. Tracking number of engaged devs added to the community
  2. Measuring level of active participation from the newly added devs and Graphtronauts
    3.New project contributions from the newly added community members
    4.Adopting of The Graph in the newly established dev community.

Here are a few links for the events we’ve organized:
Arweave meetup in Nairobi:
Helium meetup in Nairobi:
Arweave dev workshop:
Arweave general meetup in Mombasa:

@Regie Here’s my best attempt at responding to your questions as conclusively as I can; thanks for the great questions.

The Dev workshops provides subgraph devs and indexers with practical knowledge and hands-on experience. Some more specific benefits from the workshops include skill enhancement, and familiarity with The Graph’s tech. Some measurable outcomes we’ll aim for include: increase in sub-graph submissions from local devs and increase in indexer participation.

Budget Transparency:
Venue rental fees: $150
Swags/The Graph-branded merch: $100
Refreshments: $100
Event promo (using Twitter web3 influencers): $50
Misc./ organizer’s stipend: $50

Long-term Viability:
I responded to a similar question from @doxe01.eth so kindly allow me to re-share my response from their question.
To foster a sustainable community, I intend to periodically organize virtual office hours and Twitter spaces for devs interested to utilize and build on The Graph. Also, subject to approval from the DAO voters and the grants committee, I was thinking of organizing, bounties and hackathons for interested devs.

Community Engagement:
Here is my actionable strategy for community engagement:
i.) I’m looking to form partnerships with local tech organizations and blockchain communities to tap into existing networks.
ii.) I’ll utilize social media, local tech forums, and web3-focused channels to promote the workshops.

Measuring Success:
Here are a few KPI metrics I’ll use:
i.) Tracking the number of new community members over time: a growing community signals increased interest.
ii.) Measuring the level of active participation from the community members through metrics like forum/ social media interactions, event attendance & contributions to projects.
iii.) Partnerships and collaborations forged with local tech organizations or other web3 projects.
(I have delved deeper into these metrics in the proposal: I’ll be glad to respond to any further questions about this.)

I’m looking to leverage the untapped talent in local innovation hubs; as aforementioned, there is a lot of untapped talent in the Kenyan tech ecosystem and initiatives such as these workshops offer a great opportunity for devs in Kenya to showcase their skills and talent and hopefully gain visibility to more tech companies and projects that could use their skills.
I am also looking to forge mutually beneficial partnerships with local blockchain projects and tech companies; this may involve co-hosting events, resource sharing and offering support to each other’s initiatives.

Globally: Leveraging our connections in the global web3 space to create partnerships that bring external expertise and opportunities to our local community. This may include potential partnerships with other Graph dev communities globally.

Documentation and Knowledge Sharing:
Yes, the resources and reports will be publicly available.
For a start, we will primarily focus on sharing insights on Twitter, Medium and via YouTube videos. Our website will be up in a few months time, and when it’s live, it will be our principal medium for sharing resources and reports.
In case of open-source projects developed in our sessions, we will document everything on GitHub.

Web3 Experience:
This is a brief recap of web3 projects I’ve been fortunate enough to work on:

Community Governance:
On a second look, I think this point isn’t pertinent to this project and the grant proposal. Kindly disregard it.

Mission Alignment.
The Graph’s mission is to provide decentralized indexing and querying services for blockchain data, empowering devs to build efficient and scalable dapps. I can think of a few ways this project aligns with this mission:
i.) Empowering devs with The Graph community by providing educational resources and organizing workshops is in alignment with The Graph’s goal of enabling devs to harness the full potential of The Graph technology.
ii.) Building an engaged community in Kenya contributes to The Graph’s goal of fostering a global network of devs.
iii.) In line with The Graph’s objective of expanding its ecosystem and user base, The Artemisia Projekt reduces barrier to entry and enhances dev skills hence increasing The Graph’s adoption.

I really hope I managed to respond to your questions conclusively, but if you have any follow-up questions I’d be more than happy to respond to them. Besides, thanks for reading through my TL:DR proposal.


The presentation of the project will be in the public-voice-chat channel on the Graph AdvocatesDAO Discord server on October 10th at 10:00 UTC. Entrance is open and everyone is welcome to come in and ask their questions during the presentation!

Thanks everyone for your attention!

Hey @jiimxjim.eth Is there a way to possibly edit the title for this proposal? On a second look it seems like it doesn’t fully capture what the grant proposal is about; it is rather lacking.

Do you mean to replace “Artemisia Projekt” with “The Graph Kenyan Community: Built and Managed by Artemisia Projekt” in the title?
I think I can do this.

HI @bossbravo

Thanks for applying Grant for the Community, And it’s a perfect proposal to foster the community buidling, but I still have some questions after checked all your details

1: How you attract people or Dev to join the Ecosystem? They are all Web3 Dev or?

2: I saw you also did this for Arweave and Helium in your local, And for Graph, do you have some detailed presentation PDF or info you want to attract Dev to join this Ecosystem in the Workshop?

Hope can get the answer, Thank you for your time


Hello @JonathanZy thanks for the questions.

  1. In the course of my community building exercises, I have managed to develop relationships with a couple of tech communities in Kenya. I’ll therefore leverage these relationships I’ve built with the communities to tap into the talents in the communities. A majority of the devs we are looking to reach are web3 devs and a few web2 devs looking to transition to and/or learn about web3 development.

  2. I think I may have not understood this question clearly but if you intended to ask about the exact material that will be covered in the workshops, then I’d I think the best response would be: I have a rough idea of what will be covered in the course of the project, this however needs refinement and I was planning to do so in case we were lucky enough to be accepted for the grant.

I hope I managed to answer your questions but if you may still need further clarification, I’d be happy to do so.

Hello @bossbravo ,
I support events like workshops or hackathons about using and developing subgraph.
Could you please shorten the first funding period? (from 12 months to 3/6 months)
Because I can’t see the detailed organization about your workshops and others.
The grant of workshop/bootcamp before was provided more detailed information of the material and agenda.
That makes us evaluate the KPI and funding more efficiently.

Hello @jiimxjim.eth it’s okay; we could shorten the first funding period to 6 months to make it easy for the committee to track the KPIs. In case the committee then sees fit to continue with the project we could then proceed with the rest of the program. So, I am totally okay with this.

Thanks for your application and grant presentation. My only remaining question is about the content of the course compared to who is your target audience. In this post you mention:

“A majority of the devs we are looking to reach are web3 dev”

I think that’s a great approach. But my concern is that if they are already web3 developers do they really need Sessions 1 (Intro to Smart Contracts), 2 (Intro to SC Development and Solidity), and 4 ((The Basics of Solidity Programming) in your proposed project timeline? I’m not a technical person but it seems like the vast majority of devs in web3 will already have a strong understanding of those topics and concepts.

Look forward to your thoughts on this.


Hello @Mr.1776 thanks for this question.

You’re absolutely right that Web3 devs should have strong skills, or at least strong foundational skills in SC development and Solidity. In view of the fact that our workshops will be a mix of both web3 and web2 devs, we are also looking to cater for web2 devs who may not have the aforementioned skills. That’s why we’re looking to cover the basics. We are trying to be as inclusive as we possibly can and cater for all participants.
