Aurora Community grants program: how to submit proposal, report
**PROPOSAL FOR AUGUST-SEPTEMBER**
LOOKING at the above METRICS NEAR NIGERIA is an established community and will be a major tool in setting up the AURORA NIGERIA community. In relation to this the npk_guild after an in-house meeting as decided to create an AURORA NIGERIA COMMUNITY based on community participation and interest and to fulfil this we would push for a 2-3 month funding paid monthly which will be divided into
Community building: Beginning from the month of August we would run campaigns that will organically grow the AURORA NIGERIA COMMUNITY on telegram by minimum of 100 each month, this campaigns include AMA on various NIGERIA group and partners groups, Airdrops etc.
Social media building: This next two month given our already established presence in Nigeria we would push it a bit futher by growing our various social media handles for AURORA NIGERIA. The whole aim here is to make communities within Nigeria know of a more scalable L2 built on NEAR.
GRAPHICS/ VIDEO CREATION: with our established skilled graphic designers we would be able to create various items to simplify onboarding onto AURORA ECOSYSTEM. we are targeting 3 graphics with a video per week explaining various aspects of AURORA ECOSYSTEM.
CONTENT CREATORS: The content created will focus on two aspects of Aurora ECOSYSTEM which are the Technical aspects and the non technical aspects. As we currently have have you solidity devs they will be creating biweekly Article series on How to build on Aurora and etc. We would also be creating biweekly non technical Contents that a newbie will be able to understand what is the vision of Aurora is.
This is the ZERO TO HERO SERIES CREATED BY OUR DEV TEAM.
NEAR zero to hero: Building a Smart Contract in Rust | by Near Protocol Nigeria (NPK Guild) | Jul, 2022 | Medium
And other articles that newbies can use
FIVE FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN BUILDING DURING A BEAR SEASON | by Near Protocol Nigeria (NPK Guild) | Jul, 2022 | Medium
To make things fun and wild spread in Nigeria we would be translating various Articles related to the Aurora ECOSYSTEM into the 3 major languages in Nigeria. Every month we would release 6 translations that will be posted on the NEAR NIGERIA MEDIUM PAGE.
PARTNERSHIP TEAM : This team will be fully in charge of creating partnerships with entities within and outside the NEAR ECOSYSTEM. Currently Npkguild is affiliated with 10 dev hubs around Nigeria who are 90% solidity focused so bringing them into the loop wont be a problem.
DEVELOPERS TEAM: The current devs in npk are versatile in Solidity apart from RUST. So using the various dev skills we would be able to establish the following
- biweekly Technical content on how to build on AURORA
- Host month or bimonthly EVENT in various parts of Nigeria
- Create a AURORA NIGERIA DEV COMMUNITY
- Host Hackathons
- Establish partnership with various Dev entities
- Speak to EVM compatible Nigeria projects to use AURORA.
OTHER BENEFITS AURORA NIGERIA WILL GET FROM NEAR NIGERIA
- AURORA NIGERIA will be incubated by Npk team, so just know it is in safe hands
- All NEAR NIGERIA resources will be available to the growth of Aurora Nigeria
- Monthly offline meetups will be a combination of NEAR-AURORA-OCTOPUS EVENTS so we arent planning on segregating this entities
- Various events and activities will be created to organically grow Aurora Nigeria
- NEAR NIGERIA website will be upgraded to put in Aurora Activities so everyone that knows NEAR will know AURORA NIGERIA.
BENEFITS AURORA GETS FROM NEAR NIGERIA
Has initially said in the problem statement,
Knowledge of Aurora in Nigeria is poor despite NEAR been an Household name. Octopus Network still has better stand in Nigeria despite the complexity of its tech so to improve on this, we as NEAR NIGERIA has decided to
A) Create a session called AURORA SPOTLIGHT OF THE WEEK , now what is this, you may be asking. This is an opportunity for each project built on Aurora to be marketed here in Nigeria. This will involve
one page Infographic explaining the project
AMA with NEAR NIGERIA and AURORA NIGERIA COMMUNITY and giveaway section which will be done by representatives of the project
chance of this project partnering with Npkguild for our monthly offline meetup
We would be kicking off our monthly offline meetup in kano state by the last week of September this event will hold in the NEAR NIGERIA office in Kano state. As initially said this offline meetups serve the purpose of marketing and community building of AURORA.
- web 2 and 3 devs
- crypto enthusiasts.
In this event we expect minimum of 100 as we plan to make the atmosphere lively. We plan on creating mech that will be shared, Teachings on how to use the Rainbow Bridge and setting up your AURORA wallet on metamask so Airdrops are needed.
The whole idea of this event is to set up local AURORA communities in Nigeria who will access this forum to seek out funds for their activities
