Hoi, Independence is just that. When you can get money when you focus on certain goals, you will when you do. When you want to go a different route, you may but that is your route and funding for it is your responsibility as well.
Given what a chapter is, I would expect that it has ample scope to explore its own territory and seek its own priorities. My question is, when a chapter moves outside of what WMF / FDC is funding, to what extend is it still and does it deserve to be the chapter of the WMF?
