Projects and Activities
Education and outreach
Wikimedians in Egypt plan to get involved in the Egypt Education Program to help choose the right ambassadors representing Wikipedia in Egyptian Universities. We will also hold activities to support the program and outreach of Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects in Education institutions and other cultural places aiming at rising the awareness of Wikimedia projects.
The user group plans to hold and support the following activities:
- Edit-a-thons to help new Wikipedians learn editing techniques, to enrich content about Egypt or work on and develop a certain topic.
- Meetings for the Wikimedians in Egypt to exchange ideas and to check what support do they need to continue editing Wikipedia.
- Editing contests to encourage existing users edit Wikipedia and to encourage non-users join.
- Photography trips and contests to encourage users upload photos to commons.
