If this project is successful, more people would be introduced to Wikipedia Education Program and more programs would start in new places. Consequently, contributions in Arabic Wikipedia would increase.



There are side activities during the conference, we will organize a Wikipedia Education Meetup to showcase Wikipedia Education Program in Egypt as an example of a program in the Arab World. We will also actively participate by attending the conference and connecting with specific people, sharing learnings and insights.
