Edit-a-thon with 15 librarians and ICT professionals
From 26 to 27 April 2019, the local Glam-Wiki team organized a training workshop with librarians, archivists and computer scientists in the city of Bouaké (a city located in the center of Côte d'Ivoire). The workshop took place in several phases during the two days. On Friday the 26th, activities started with a presentation of Wikipedia, Wikimedia and the Glam-Wiki project. Followed by a series of questions and answers. Around noon, participants created Wikipedia accounts and made their first contributions. The Edit-a-thon continued on Saturday 27, and participants focused on improving articles related to Côte d'Ivoire.
At the end of the last day of training, certificates of participation were given to each participant. In the end, some participants wanted to continue the adventure and integrate the user group of Wikimedia CIV. This allowed us to create a Wiki Club (working group designed to create and improve articles on Côte d'Ivoire in particular and Africa in general) in Bouaké.
