Community Wikimedia User Group Haiti is an association based in Port-au-Prince which brings together Haitian Wikimedian volunteers around a main objective which is to improve the presence of Haiti in various Wikimedia projects while pursuing all of the major aims of the Wikimedia Foundation. It is formally recognized by the Affiliate Committee of the Wikimedia Foundation.

This association was created in August 2018 following the second edition of the digital summer school (link in French), organized by the Réseau des Jeunes Bénévoles des Classiques des Sciences Sociales (link in French) at the National Library of Haiti

For the moment, the User Group of the Wikimedia Community of Haiti contributes on four projects:

French Wikipedia ; Wikimedia Commons ; Wikidata ; Haitian Creole Wikipedia
