The Wikimedia Algeria User Group is a local User Group of the Wikimedia Foundation. Its mission is to promote the Wikimedia Foundation and its projects in Algeria.
One of its core missions is to aid and encourage people to collect, develop and disseminate knowledge and other educational, cultural and historic content in the public domain or under a license that allows everyone to freely use, distribute and modify said content without the payment of royalties.

Roles an Algerian Chapter would play
- Promotion: Promotion of Wikimedia projects and Free content in general. To encourage the use of Wikimedia resources in education (at primary, secondary and tertiary levels)
- Recruitment: To recruit non-technically minded people to contribute to Wikimedia projects. This may involve some education on the use of Mediawiki software.
- Social: Organisation of conventions
- Research: With a local chapter, research should be easier. The chapter can work together to gather information on a range of topics not currently covered.
