Project idea[edit]

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

What problem are you trying to solve by doing this project? This problem should be small enough that you expect it to be completely or mostly resolved by the end of this project. Remember to review the tutorial for tips on how to answer this question.
Prevent introduction of drug and substance abuse to unknowing students.

What is your solution?[edit]

For the problem you identified in the previous section, briefly describe your how you would like to address this problem. We recognize that there are many ways to solve a problem. We’d like to understand why you chose this particular solution, and why you think it is worth pursuing. Remember to review the tutorial for tips on how to answer this question.
Swahili is the major language spoken in Kenya and in East Africa. It is a pity to see that articles regarding local drugs in Swahili are either missing or very shallowly detailed. As such, by having students write the articles, it will not only repulse them from drug use but also grow the data on Wikipedia

Project goals[edit]

What are your goals for this project? Your goals should describe the top two or three benefits that will come out of your project. These should be benefits to the Wikimedia projects or Wikimedia communities. They should not be benefits to you individually. Remember to review the tutorial for tips on how to answer this question.
1. Grow the Swahili content on Wikipedia. 2. Repulse students from drugs.
