Dig It Foundation
Dig It Foundation (DIF) is a Non-Profit Organization that seeks to promote the growth of Wikimedia and it’s sister Project movement through contributions and outreaches using Wikimedia tools to digitize knowledge for it to be universally accessible and useful. Dig It Foundation is a user group that is based in the Western Region of Ghana. The reason for the setup of the user group is to help represent the western region on Wikipedia and its sister projects that citizens and the global community will appreciate. The user group will also prioritise the digitisation of relevant information which are not yet on Wikipedia and its sister project.
Our aim is to ensure that we train and retrain new and old contributors respectively on how to use Wikipedia and its sister projects on how to create new content, edit and also making partnership with user groups locally and globally so that we can collaborate to make a difference by making the sum of human knowledge free and opened.
Digitizing knowledge, making it universally accessible and usefully to the global community by training and retraining contributors.
Transforming the echo system through effective partnership and training.
