African Women In Education

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

African Women In Education is aimed to provide a comprehensive and inclusive space dedicated solely to celebrating the wisdom and intellectual prowess of African women in the field of education. Our project acts as a catalyst for change, igniting a global movement to recognize, honor, and elevate these extraordinary women by showcasing their powerful words. This project is targeted at training new and existing Wikimedian editors to bridge the gap about the notable quotes from African Women educators on wikiquote.


Quote by Anna Duba

African Women Educationists have long been inspirational figures in championing the cause of girl education in Africa.There exists numerous notable and remarkable quotes from African Women that specializes in the field of Education ranging from African Women that are primary and secondary school teachers, principals, lecturers, educational counsellors, rectors and vice chancellors.These notable and remarkable quotes from this African Women educationist has helped to break the barriers across Africa to enable young girls reach their full academic potential as girl education is a vital way of transforming lives, not just for the girl herself but for her family and the community too and the world at large.These inspiring quotes from African Women educators have not been fully and properly documented on wikiquote. Through this project we hope to engage and train individuals,new and existing Wikimedian editors on how to effectively create and improve Wikiquote articles, documenting this powerful and inspiring quotes of these prominent African Women educators to ensure that their quotes are appropriately acknowledged,preserved and documented as this will immensely bridge the content gap about the notable and remarkable quotes from African Women educators, giving the world access to the notable and remarkable quotes from African Women educators that often go unheard.
