  • Amount spent: 60000 USD

Part 1 Understanding your work[edit]

1. Briefly describe how your proposed activities and strategies were implemented.

Our proposal came to life through the immersive 'Who We Are' tour, during which we introduced our AfroCuration format across three African nations: Mozambique, South Africa, and Ghana. These implementations were orchestrated by our trusted partners, deeply embedded within our target communities in their respective countries. Seizing this momentous occasion, we diligently advanced our WAE mandate by instituting a comprehensive metrics board and tool kit, assigning each partner the role of reporting on their progress while rolling out the AfroCuration format. This strategic approach ensured the realization of our overarching objective, which will be elaborated upon in the forthcoming sections of this report.

2. Were there any strategies or approaches that you felt were effective in achieving your goals?

Our strategic approach centered on forging collaborations with existing partners who had previously demonstrated success in implementing the AfroCuration format. Putting together the cultural partners with Wikipedian communities allowed on the one hand to tap into the cultural partners’ audiences previously unexposed to Wikipedia and on the other hand unlock the cultural content of the involved institutions onto the platform. Working with the existing partners allowed us to leverage their prior achievements, enrich the existing narrative, and contribute to the collective movement in a way that nurtured their individual contributions. This methodology proved highly effective as it empowered our partners, fostering a strong sense of ownership over the program. This, in turn, engendered a heightened sense of responsibility in them, driving them to implement strategies that ensured both longevity and replicability. This approach led to the establishment of a robust alliance of partners united around the common goal of creating knowledge in African languages on local culture, community and people on Wikipedia platform. This alliance is now dedicated to further exploration, delving into methods to enhance the self-sufficiency and recurring nature of the overarching WAE program. This phase of collaboration is guiding us toward a future where the program gains greater independence and enjoys sustained recurrence, solidifying its impact.

3. Would you say that your project had any innovations? Are there things that you did very differently than you have seen them done by others?

- Putting together Wikipedia communities and cultural partners on a Panafrican level in a physical workshop to discuss, exchange and co-create The true innovation this year was bringing together all the involved cultural partners and Wikipedia communities together for a co-thinking workshop in Johannesburg, South Africa. Notably, this event marked the first occasion when these PanAfrican stakeholders convened in person. Their primary objectives were to collaboratively devise a unified sustainability strategy and to exchange insights derived from the program's implementation experiences. It was the first step in the direction of building a true WikiAfrica Education movement by building on singular communities’ experiences. See the workshop’s report attached for all the details.

  • Actively involving universities’ professors and deans in the AfroCuration events to have a concrete demonstration of the efficacy of the program for the students; making AfroCuration part of the University’s curriculum.
  • Building on the importance of the cultural lens in knowledge production on Wikipedia. Each community chooses the cultural topic most relevant to them (African authors in Ghana, Mozambican writers and Emakhua culture in Mozambique, stereotypes and prejudice in South Africa), introduced by the locally relevant cultural protagonists. This is what truly sets the AfroCuration format apart from other Wikipedia editathons, creating a sense of political and social activism and not just stopping at the technical aspect of knowledge creation. This unique distinction enhances the program’s appeal and impact, enriching the content in a manner that resonates deeply with participants’ sense of identity and empowers them to be the active protagonists writing their own digital narrative as opposed to being passive consumers of it.

4. Please describe how different communities participated and/or were informed about your work.

Throughout this period, it remained imperative that we consistently expanded our outreach to diverse communities, ensuring the program's ability to magnify its impact within our designated target audiences.

The communities engaged were: Wikipedia User Groups in South Africa, Twi Community in Ghana (5 language communities), Mozambique Emakhua user group incubator Constitution Hill and Johannesburg High Schools in South Africa, Ethale Publishing and Rovuma University in Mozambique, The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Language Department, and The University of Education, Winneba (UEW), Ajumako campus, Akan-Nzema department.

Our outreach strategy encompassed a comprehensive approach that included multiple facets:

Open calls designed to attract potential participants to register for the events via our newly established centralized Optimy platform/tool. This platform efficiently maintains a comprehensive database of participants, enabling streamlined management. Open calls were promoted across social media platforms and websites of cultural partners, and through the local chapters of Wikipedia. Dedicated WhatsApp groups, each overseen by respective partners, facilitating seamless communication with the participants.

This multi-pronged approach played a pivotal role in fostering a network of interconnected collaborators and ensured widespread engagement and participation across diverse demographics and regions.

5. Documentation of your impact. Please use the two spaces below to share files and links that help tell your story and impact. This can be documentation that shows your results through testimonies, videos, sound files, images (photos and infographics, etc.) social media posts, dashboards, etc.

6. To what extent do you agree with the following statements regarding the work carried out with the support of this Fund? You can choose “not applicable” if your work does not relate to these goals.

Our efforts during the Fund period have helped to...
A. Bring in participants from underrepresented groups Strongly agree
B. Create a more inclusive and connected culture in our community Strongly agree
C. Develop content about underrepresented topics/groups Strongly agree
D. Develop content from underrepresented perspectives Strongly agree
E. Encourage the retention of editors Strongly agree
F. Encourage the retention of organizers Strongly agree
G. Increased participants' feelings of belonging and connection to the movement. Strongly agree

7. Is there anything else you would like to share about how your efforts helped to bring in participants and/or build out content, particularly for underrepresented groups?

We have actively engaged with our existing partners, collaboratively strategizing on the most effective means to attract new audiences. What worked well this time was the endorsement of the existing editors from the previous editions of AfroCuration who have recruited new editors from their community. This happened especially in Mozambique, where one of our returning editors is part of Rovuma University, hence promoting the program among the University students. In South Africa, we tapped into the Constitution Hill’s educational program audiences, thus having access to high school students they normally work with. In Ghana, reaching out to 5 different Wiki language communities, ensured the linguistic diversity of the group and the fact that the participants were already equipped with the basics of Wikipedia and could therefore really build and expand on the cultural content creation during the event. Overall, according to the surveys we have conducted with the participants, 95% of the audiences came from the low income population and underrepresented groups.

Part 2: Your main learning[edit]

8. In your application, you outlined your learning priorities. What did you learn about these areas during this period?

In our application, our primary goal was to cultivate a deeper understanding of the most impactful methods for fostering connections between Wiki communities and cultural organizations. We also aimed to inspire cultural organizations to seamlessly integrate the AfroCuration format into their programming, ensuring its sustainability through consistent backing from Wikimedia communities and the persistent dedication of these cultural organizations.Throughout the course of this project, we've gained valuable insights into the power of aligning cultural partners and dedicated Wikimedians within the same community. The outcome of this collaboration has been the liberation of unique and pertinent content and knowledge on Wikipedia, breathing new life into the platform. These insights were elaborated upon during our workshop. It became evident that establishing a coalition of Wikipedia communities and cultural partners working together to promote the WikiAfrica Education movement and its values, would serve as a pivotal step to enhance coordination and communication among stakeholders, and share mutual learnings and challenges, thereby charting our path forward. Additionally, our overarching goal is to craft a strategy that not only fosters sustainability of WikiAfrica Education and Afro Curation, but also ensures their replicability in the partner’s educational programs. To achieve this, our intention is to devise a high-level funding and implementation model.

9. Did anything unexpected or surprising happen when implementing your activities?

The Twi Wikipedia community took the cultural aspect of AfroCuration very seriously and have done rigorous research in various fields to present inspirational videos, quotes, music pieces that testified to the importance of preserving local African languages as a means to reconnect to one’s identity. The editing sessions were constantly interweaved with these cultural stimuli, which created a most dynamic and vibrant environment, encouraging creativity and imagination in the participants.

Furthermore, the university professors in Ghana were deeply impressed by both the profound impact of the program and its innovative methodology. Which led to a proposal for future collaboration with the Twi Community.

A significant milestone has been achieved through the African Leadership Academy (ALA), which seamlessly integrated AfroCuration into its 2022 and 2023 curriculums. Notably, the initiative has transcended the confines of formal education, becoming an integral facet of the institution's Student Enterprise Program. Within this dynamic framework simulating an economic environment for nurturing entrepreneurial skills, AfroCuration has evolved into a student-led venture. Empowered by this autonomy, the students have taken on the responsibilities of both administering and promoting the AfroCuration program, solidifying its position as a thriving initiative under their adept guidance.

10. How do you hope to use this learning? For instance, do you have any new priorities, ideas for activities, or goals for the future?

Armed with these invaluable insights, our aspiration is to foster collaborative efforts between Wikimedia communities and cultural partners, enabling them to autonomously orchestrate these events. What came out as the most viable approach is to integrate AfroCuration into the already existing programs or events, planned by the cultural institutions in order to optimise the limited resources and amplify the impact of existing programming. Synergising with such big events as Africa Day or integrating AfroCuration into the University’s Club activities or tapping into existing internship programs, could facilitate the program’s adoption by the institutions. This approach holds the key to sustaining the program in a way that resonates deeply with the ethos of the involved communities and institutions. In this regard, the Partners Coalition, comprising participants from the final partners’ workshop, stands poised to harness their collective resources and expertise (applying for funding as multiple stakeholders, promoting programs in reciprocal communities, sharing grant application expertise, training key staff by Wikimedia communities to lead the training sessions, etc.), propelling the program forward and expanding its influence across local communities and the broader PanAfrican landscape. This unified effort holds the potential to magnify both the program's reach and its transformative impact to foster more momentum around dialogues that are being had across the Continent.

11. If you were sitting with a friend to tell them one thing about your work during this fund, what would it be (think of inspiring or fascinating moments, tough challenges, interesting anecdotes, or anything that feels important to you)?

A standout moment from the 2023 iteration of the AfroCuration project was the remarkable achievement of the Twi Wikimedia community, which adeptly assumed the hosting responsibilities for the AfroCuration event. Impressively, they flawlessly executed the event despite it being their inaugural endeavor. This resounding accomplishment instilled in us a profound sense of assurance, underscoring the pivotal role that Wikimedia communities can play in ensuring the enduring success and sustainability of the program. Here is an anecdote that our Rovuma University partner in Mozambique shared with us: "The 770 Wikipedia articles that we have written in Makhuwa language through AfroCuration events is the first written content in the history of this language after the Bible.

12. Please share resources that would be useful to share with other Wikimedia organizations so that they can learn from, adapt or build upon your work. For instance, guides, training material, presentations, work processes, or any other material the team has created to document and transfer knowledge about your work and can be useful for others. Please share any specific resources that you are creating, adapting/contextualizing in ways that are unique to your context (i.e. training material).

Number of organizers Beginning with a paid WiR role to deliver main trainings of partners. One main organiser for each Wiki community we intend to engage with (5) should be present at this training to learn about the strategy of collaboration with the cultural organizations. They will organise their communities and also must develop direct relationship with the cultural organization. Thereafter, we will attract and maintain a team of local volunteers (within community of the main organisers) to support implementation of each event within the series of activity. When online, we imagine this would benefit greatly from the presence of previous volunteers from our AfroCuration events. 15 24 Organizers who contributed: 24

20. Please share your learning about strategies to build partnerships with other institutions and groups and any other learning about working with partners?

Our primary achievement rests in the establishment of strategic partnerships with external organizations to effectively execute our WAE-focused initiatives. This success can be attributed to our adeptness in selecting partners whose ongoing efforts align with our goal of fostering an understanding of African cultures and histories on the digital landscape. Subsequently, we approach these collaborators armed with our comprehensive framework, including our toolkit and metrics board, which serves as the backbone of our implementation strategy, ensuring meticulous oversight of the entire journey.

Part 5: Sense of belonging and collaboration[edit]

21. What would it mean for your organization to feel a sense of belonging to the Wikimedia or free knowledge movement?

Our engagement with the free knowledge movement, spearheaded by the Wikimedia Foundation, holds profound significance for our organization. This importance is magnified due to a substantial portion of our programming revolving around this noble cause. Consequently, our involvement becomes a conduit to persistently advance our initiatives within this realm and build upon our initial endeavors. Since our inception in 2006, championing this initiative has been a cornerstone of our mission. As we align with the Wikimedia Foundation's objectives, we recognize this as a prime opportunity to share the wealth of insights and strategies we've accumulated over the years with our broader ecosystem. This exchange of knowledge aims to contribute to the overarching goals of the Wikimedia Foundation, fostering an environment where our combined efforts remain not only sustainable but also profoundly relevant.

22. How has your (for individual grantees) or your group/organization’s (for organizational grantees) sense of belonging to the Wikimedia or free knowledge movement changed over the fund period?

Increased significantly

23. If you would like to, please share why it has changed in this way.

We've unequivocally witnessed a profound sense of ownership among our individual grantees, a transformation catalyzed by our approach to program implementation, meticulously aligned with their pre-existing objectives.

24. How has your group/organization’s sense of personal investment in the Wikimedia or free knowledge movement changed over the fund period?

Increased significantly

25. If you would like to, please share why it has changed in this way.

our connection to the movement has deepened considerably from our vantage point. This evolution is primarily attributed to our implementations, which have granted us a lens to discern a host of challenges and opportunities, lending a distinct and individual character to our format. Over the course of this funding period, our organizational approach has organically drawn us closer to the movement, a progression that will be meticulously elucidated in our forthcoming grant proposal. In summary, our overarching objective is to solidify our progress and channel the amassed knowledge and resources back into the Wikimedia community. Specifically, we aim to engage with its chapters, facilitating invaluable support for their ongoing endeavors and harnessing the stability they offer.

26. Are there other movements besides the Wikimedia or free knowledge movement that play a central role in your motivation to contribute to Wikimedia projects? (for example, Black Lives Matter, Feminist movement, Climate Justice, or other activism spaces) If so, please describe it below.

At the heart of our organization lies a fundamental mission that propels our endeavors across diverse domains. This mission takes the form of the 'Creativity for Social Change' movement, a cause that hinges on exploring the potential of creativity to create lasting positive transformations on a global scale. Within this expansive framework, our primary aim revolves around furnishing tools and resources that empower our affiliated organizations to effect tangible and quantifiable changes within their respective communities. This movement operates as a nexus, positioned to intersect with other cognate initiatives. Our overarching objective is to facilitate dialogues that transcend boundaries, fostering discussions on how to embrace an inclusive approach to creativity that resonates.

Supporting Peer Learning and Collaboration[edit]

We are interested in better supporting peer learning and collaboration in the movement.

27. Have you shared these results with Wikimedia affiliates or community members?


27a. Please describe how you have already shared them. Would you like to do more sharing, and if so how?

Regular interactions with our counterparts at Wikimedia are an integral part of our operational protocol. These engagements serve as a vital conduit for mutual updates on movement progress, fostering a comprehensive understanding of how these developments resonate within our internal framework and the broader external landscape. In addition to these collaborative sessions, we ensure that our affiliated partners are well-informed through quarterly reports. These detailed assessments offer a panoramic view of our strides and endeavors, reaffirming our unwavering dedication to fulfilling our commitments. By maintaining this robust communication network, we fortify transparency and engender a sense of reassurance among our affiliates, cultivating a shared commitment to our collective responsibilities. Furthermore, as an added measure, we've established a centralized live dashboard on Moleskine Foundation's website that consolidates the outcomes of the AfroCuration events. This dashboard serves as a convenient point of reference for all our partners, offering real-time updates on the numerical metrics associated with the program's progress.

28. How often do you currently share what you have learned with other Wikimedia Foundation grantees, and learn from them?

We do this occasionally (less than once a month)

29. How does your organization currently share mutual learning with other grantees?

Throughout the implementation phase, our engagement with grantees remain a continuous dialogue, underscored by daily conversations. This active participation on our part is pivotal, serving as a linchpin to ensure the seamless progression of each project toward successful fruition. Once the format is put into action, we solicit a comprehensive final report from our grantees. This report serves as a guide to gain profound insights into their overall experience and the specific activities undertaken. Subsequently, a dedicated meeting ensues, wherein we meticulously review the report in detail. This review process not only encompasses an analysis of their journey but also involves clarifications on specific aspects.
