We started Wikipedia workshops in universities and schools in Guinea at the end of 2018 in early 2019 and plan to continue awareness raising and monthly training in cities (Fria, Kindia, Kamsar, Boké and Conakry)

Targeted universities and schools will provide their training rooms, library and computer center for successful training sessions and we have a mobile Wi-Fi box to provide internet access.

From July sessions will begin, one training per month until December.

Who would you engage in your initiative?[edit]

Describe the kind of relationships you have or plan to establish with potential partners in your community, both in your local Wikimedia community and education community.

We will work with Wikimedians from every city sites and become by extension our focal points, teachers we will be assigned by the host schools that already follow in our communication channels. Kofitech224 and actuELLESinfo assists us in coaching 10 to 20 minutes before each session.

In terms of financial resources, how much money would you need to achieve your goals?[edit]

How will you know your project has succeeded?[edit]

Describe potential evaluation plans, indicators, tools, etc. that will help you identify if you have achieved your goals

We hope that after our training ;

several new contributors will see the day ;

The rate of articles created or improved will be remarkable ,

The assessment sheets allow us to detect the late of our training and the vision they will have of Wikipedia after each session.

What are the biggest challenges you foresee in the implementation of your idea and how would you address them?[edit]

Be as detailed as possible.


Many are teachers who give homework and lecture then Wikipedia site as references. But often the

information is limited when it comes to Guinea and getting them involved will force students and

teachers to improve, edit articles on Wikipedia and brother projects.



Why do Wikimedia projects belong in education?[edit]

Our point of view on the value of Wikimedia projects in Guinea is to make it more accessible to students and coaches who use it as a textbook already.
