Hello,
This is such wonderful news.
We have come a long way. This chapter has been two years in the making. I 
remember our very first meet-up in July 24, 2010 at Java House, Loita Street 
along with Oliver, Oscar and Dennis. Out of the ~20 winners of the Google 
challenge that I had notified about the first meeting, only the four of us 
attended. Despite our failed efforts to proselytize our fellow participants, we 
still had hope. Despite the criticisms, we still moved on. Despite the many 
failed projects, we've still managed to succeed in little projects, with high 
impact. Despite the chaos in this mailing list, the energy amongst us still 
prevails. Despite the fact that we're not yet legally recognized, we have 
managed to impact the community and partnered with several legally-recognized 
entities. Despite the huge gender gap in the global Wikimedia movement, we have 
managed to get a fair number of (awesome) ladies on board. Despite our 
differences, we are bonded by camaraderie. 
And yes, I would like a cake too. Or a bash. Or going back to Java where it all 
started. Whatever.
Warm regards,
Abbas.
