I am glad to hear that. I didn't know we could do it through Wikimedia grants.

Although in Brazil we need to analyse better what could be done, since
lobbying it not (yet) legalised. But I must tell sometimes there are
some people here that attempt to influence decisions made by officials
in the government, most often legislators or members of regulatory
agencies. And I know cases where we have made changes that were
benefitial for the Wikimedia movement.

@Wikimedia Brasil friends: please, see the thread "Question: How do we
define lobbying?" at wikimedia-l mailing list.
