More to learn[edit]

Further details about what I would like to learn.

I would like to learn how to apply for grants to help in involving more people as I have began editing on Incubator. I introduced the Ghanaian Pidgin English currently in Incubator. I would also like to learn how to recruit more volunteers and retain them in the movement.

Stories about sharing[edit]

Interesting stories about applying the skills I want to share.

I partnered with User:NanaYawBotar to organise the Ghana Histo cita-thon program in both 2020 and 2021. It was successful as I was the lead trainer. I trained newbies on how to edit on Wikipedia and create Wikidata items.
