Hey @aeternityekiti, great campaign! However, I think the budget does not include travel, daily allowance and accommodation for people flying in from the EU.

Having them down here would be really great but looking at the cost of travel and daily allowance was why we thought of having them as online facilitators.

Regards,
@emmanueljet

Hey Emanuel @aeternityekiti

I am adding the most important comments we made to your proposal during the call. They also relate to your Ondo State CBC

  1. Please add estimations (numbers) in the Assessment/Metrics of Success section. For example, please add the number of expected participants, aepps, and number of developers that will complete the Decade course.
  2. Please add information about the locations where both Developers Study Jams will take place.
  3. Please edit the Milestones so it is clear that the details below point 3 are actually part of the 11 weeks-long workshop and not additional to it.
  4. Please clarify how many hours will Piwo need to spend on this project.

That’s all for now. Talk to you on Monday and please make sure you have a stable internet connection.

Thank you!

Best,
Vlad
