Hello! Thank you for submitting this grant proposal!

I have a couple of questions!

  1. Can you tell me more about the platform, what would it look like. What would people do on the platform?

  2. What would the $7000 be used for in the creation of the platform?

Hello and thank you for applying for a Community Grant! After reviewing your application I have a few follow up questions in addition to @Colson’s.

  • In your application you said you have been with The Graph since 2019. Can you provide more detail about your connection and experience with The Graph?
  • Can you share links or resources to the projects you mentioned you have worked on over the past 5 years?
  • You mentioned that if this project is a success you would be repairing and building schools. Can you describe how you would measure if this project is successful or not (i.e. “number of students who completed the course”) and how the project you are requesting funds for and the school repair/building projects are connected?

Thank you again for submitting your application! Looking forward to your responses.

Good afternoon!

Thank you for your offer, but I have a few questions. I also join the questions asked above. So:

  1. How long will you create this and in general, how will you be able to qualitatively evaluate the results?

  2. Where do you plan to conduct the training? In terms of geographical location, place.

According to the above answers, I would rather recommend applying for city grants, possibly to get financial assistance for the reconstruction/building of the school and so on.

Thank you!
