The core values of ICANN, as described In the bylaws are to be found at [https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/governance/bylaws-en/#article1] and are cited below.

As someone who follows the CCWG-AP, I must speak as an individual and also someone who is informed but recognizes that understanding ICANN is quite complicated. My comments call on the CCWG-AP and the ICANN Board to fully respect the bylaws, the principles and the importance of bringing informed and committed participants from developing countries.

The Core Values of ICANN to me, as I read them, indicate that funding for bringing informed and interested participants from developing countries reflecting the functional, geographic, and cultural diversity of the Internet will advance ICANN's acceptance.  Thus, such initiatives deserve funding by the Auction Funds as only one additional example to be accepted.

Bearing in mind that Internet is only as powerful as it is accessible and safe, a portion of Auction Funds should be used for bridging the digital gap, accessibility and inclusion of persons with disabilities, gender equality and enhance the use of ICT for empowerment of women and girls, child online protection, green ICT and many other human and environment protection-oriented initiatives toward One world - One Internet.  This may seem to be outside the scope of ICANN, but we do ask that CCWG-AP and ICANN Board understands that it is inclusion that matters and will strengthen ICANN for its next 20 years.

I speak as an individual user -- regardless of what other role I may hold, as the most important voice has to be the informed users of the Internet.

Best regards
