Grants Strategy Relaunch

Veronica Thamaini

I have experience in project, program management and grant-making in development issues including education, gender equality and technology for development. I am keen on engaging in programs that focus on the equitable development of communities through sustainable innovations.

When not at work I am a life skills instructor with Akirachix, an organization that builds great female tech talent for Africa and the rest of the world. I enjoy reading a good book, sharing a laugh with friends, knitting and taking nature walks with my current favourite trail being The Nairobi Arboretum.

The Wikimedia Foundation supports individuals and organizations around the world to increase the diversity, reach, quality, and quantity of free knowledge. We promote knowledge equity aligned with the strategic direction of the Wikimedia movement. In this session, we will review funding programs under the Community Resources Department ; funds that are focused on decentralized decision-making, regional committees, and reaching underrepresented communities.


Our people-centred approach is built on the principles of equity & empowerment, collaboration & cooperation, and the promotion of innovation and learning. We will review three funding programs which support individuals and organizations: the Wikimedia Community Fund, Wikimedia Alliances Fund, and Wikimedia Research and Technology Fund.
