Program Description[edit]

The Wikipedia for Schools project is a project by SOS Children packaging an offline copy of a selected subset of English Wikipedia articles. In 2011-2013 Wikimedia volunteers in Kenya sought to disseminate this offline package to shcools in Kenya. The aim was to bring improved access to free information, especially critical educational content, to Kenya’s students and teachers through the installation of Offline Wikipedia in Primary & Secondary Schools across the country.

The program was discontinued, due to very low evidence of use and difficulty getting the packages to the schools.
