The International Roma Day Edit-a-thon took place on April 8 this year in Tirana
For the third year, WoALUG participated in the global edit-a-thon organized by Wikimedia Serbia.
WoALUG organized a 4-hour edit-a-thon to translate and specifically update articles about the Roma community with local figures, statistics, and their installments in Albania.
We tried to invite and cooperate with organizations with a focus on Roma community development in the country. So, this year, we had representatives from the Youth Roma and Egyptian Movement that also supported us with material and other sources about this community.
Right now, we are following through with the Youth Roma and Egyptian Movement to add more content to Wikipedia articles.
Here are some statistics from the edit-a-thon:
13 articles created
22 articles edited
We have a public Telegram channel (language used mostly Albanian) if you want to join and discuss Wikimedia projects.
