Should the following Tier 1: up to $1,500 USD in MANA, one-time payment grant in the Community category be approved?
This is a low-cost high- return marketing Decentraland through radio programmes,workshops and internet;making people know, join and participate in it by investing,learning and contributing their creativity and innovations and getting involved in all activities within. Also be able to educate the masses about Non Fungible Tokens(NFTs) and how they can “tokenise” land and other valuables such as artworks,videos,games and other forms of innovations and creative thinking. I have been doing this kind of work for six years so I have the potential to create content for radio programme and workshops which will also be relayed on internet through channels such as u-tube,emails and social media such as facebook,twitter,telegram etc.
My project should receive funding because it is a low cost but high return investment and enables more people not only in Africa but also other parts of the world to know about the existence of Decentraland and become members of this community.Growing, educating, moderating, and maintaining a healthy community of players, creators, and developers is important to Decentraland’s success.So the radio programmes on the Local FM Radio in the names of Freedom Radio 94.7FM in Kabale Municipality South Western Uganda and through seminars carried out in Kirigime Guest House,Kabale Town Uganda and then relayed through internet channels such as u-tube,websites,emails,bloogs and social media will enable; Community education,Outreach and event organization and Moderation at the same time. The project shall also include creating documentation, tutorials, videos, or other forms of content intended to educate and support the community.Through this community project,content creators,platform contributors and those involved in gaming will brought onboard to Decentraland.It will enable people globally share their talents, creativity and innovations and improve on their economic status and knowledge as well as social empowerment. These activities of the project will increase the membership of Decentral and hugely as the radio programmes and seminars will be recorded and channeled through internet channels that increase publicity and interest in joining and use of Decentraland.The activities of the project will also be produced in at least two more popular languages of the world in addition to English.This will solve the problem of Decentraland not being known in some parts of the world and this being done at a comparatively low cost.Also for purposes of transparency and accountability receipts,photos,video clips and documents of the activitiues will be submited
The project will be done and completed through two radio programmes preceded by radio announcements and two workshops all of which will be video recorded and whose recording will be channeled though internet; u-tube and any other application allowing for such and links to it shared though social media,emails,websites, blogs etc so as to publicist Decentraland more.I together with other 2 skilled people in presentation of radio programmes will voluntarily be the guest presenters of the radio programmes about Decentraland and related content.We shall produce related content for the radio programmes as well as for the seminars in form of printed and recorded materials.Also these will be reproduced and converted to at least two more globally popular languages in addition to English to improve the marketing outcome.During workshops teaching aids such as projectors and printed as well as recorded materials will be used.We shall pay for being hosted on the local FM radio 2 times as well as carrying out 2 seminars in a rented conference hall of a hotel where the participants will be financially facilitating for meals, accommodation and transport themselves.Each radio programmes has a listenership of 8 million people while the seminars each will accommodate 50 participants.

The two 2 -Hours radio programmes with the related announcements and materials to use will each cost US Dollars 300 thus totaling to US Dollars 600. The 2 whole day seminars about Decentraland will include renting of the conference hall,teaching aids,public communication system and printed and recorded materials to use at a total cost of US Dollars 400 per day = USD 800 Thus USD600+USD 800 = USD 1400

The road map of our project shall include; planning and creating content to help in educating the radio programme listeners know and understand Decentraland and Decentralised Autonomous Organisations(DAO) how and where to join.The same will be done during the physical workshops.We shall make a progress chart as to indicate and record the success of the milestones especially that of enabling the community know about Decentraland and join it.We shall once funded and the project takes place keep updating the community through phone messages and monthly meetings and update the Decentraland community through updates through some of its channels that enable such.Once the funding has been provided we shall also through the same radio programmes and seminars call for further sponsorships from community members as well as radio and conference owners to help in continued sponsorship of the radio programmes and workshops as well as business community that may be interested in continued sponsorship of the project.
