Intro: Wiki In Africa
Our objective is to empower and engage citizens of Africa and its diaspora to collect, develop and contribute educational and relevant content that relates to the theme of Africa under a free license; and to engage in global knowledge systems by encouraging access to, awareness of, and support for open knowledge, the open movement and the Wikimedia projects, working in collaboration with like-minded organisations.
Sharing the wealth and diversity of Africa’s knowledge, history, culture and contemporary reality through online contribution is a mammoth task. To achieve as broad an impact as possible, Wiki in Africa takes a multi-pronged approach – working with aligned partners to activate Africa through a network of grant-funded, staffed projects. Though each individual initiative is designed to stand alone, they all aim to accelerate the growth of online communities and encourage a culture of contribution from Africa to Wikipedia and the Wikimedia projects.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ...
We are only as successful as the impact we have on communities across Africa. Here you can see what people say about our projects from within the projects and from the Wikimedia movement.
THE ORGANISATIONS THAT SUPPORT OUR WORK
We could not do what we do and make the impact we make on Africa's knowledge and stories without the support and collaboration of these organisations. They are the backbone of our work.
