Project idea[edit]

What is the problem you're trying to solve?[edit]

Not enough content from Ghana in terms of photos, audio and videos are found Wiki Commons. When an editor is working on an article or anything from Ghana and wants a media file which is Ghana related to support the article, a simple search for it on Wiki Commons sometimes proves futile not making article not so rich.Issues with copyright is another problem for an editor who maybe wants to edit a simple article.

What is your solution?[edit]

Discover Ghana Project seeks to make a search for these files (photos/audio/videos) available for editors to be used freely when creating or editing an article concerning Ghana and also doing away with copyright issues.

Project goals[edit]

This project will increase the number of media files from Ghana and it will help editors use it to make their work more meaningful.
