WoALUG collaboration with educational institution BONEVET in Prishtina, Kosovo

Authors: Miranda038 & Arianit

Summary: Wikimedians of Albanian Language User Group cooperated with BONEVET, a non-formal educational institution, to train their instructors on Wikimedia projects which they can further carry out in their activities.

For five Fridays during October and November WoALUG board member Arianit and Project Manager Miranda038 met with the instructors of BONEVET to train them on Wikimedia related activities. During these sessions, the instructors were introduced to the basics of editing on Wikipedia, Commons, and Wikidata, which we expect them to continue using and incorporate in their activities with students to help us broaden our community.

BONEVET [1] is a non-profit and non-formal educational institution established in 2014, aiming to advance student education in Kosovo.

This training marks the beginning of more collaborations to come between our user group and BONEVET with whom we have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, intending to pursue our common goals related to education as a tool to expand and improve the content in the Albanian language and about Kosovo on Wikimedia projects.
