Audience[edit]

Who are the people you want to introduce Wikipedia to?[edit]

Try to be as specific as possible about this group.
I want to introduce Wikipedia to young students between 18 and 30-years-old across universities in northern Nigeria. There is a clear lack of knowledge about Wikipedia as a general information resource platform, that can be handy to further the scope of their research and academic work. Therefore, I will introduce and re-introduce Wikipedia to these group of people in northern Nigeria universities. The beautiful thing is that more than 70 percent of these group of students have a smartphone and other handheld devices with which they can access the internet and consequently logon to Wikipedia.

In what languages do they search for information, online or otherwise?[edit]

Though most of the students in the universities in northern Nigeria primarily speak the Hausa language, they search for information online in the English language, they cannot find enough information online when they search for information online in the Hausa language.

In what ways does this group communicate with each other?[edit]

This can include services and apps in social media, mailing lists, physical spaces like conferences or lectures, or at specific institutions like at a library.
SMS

What are some reasons this group would use Wikipedia? How would they benefit from it, or what would they find useful?[edit]

Think about what they would be interested in reading and learning about; does Wikipedia provide better access to information this group cares about?
THERE ARE MANY WHO CANT GAIN LANGUAGE BECAUSE OF THEY NEED TO WORK HARD FOR THERE FAMILY NOT TO STRUGLE FOR FOOD
