Programmes

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. Click on the logos below to know more about each programme.
