Fulfulde Wikipedia up to now didn't have more active Users the absence of active contributors in Fulfulde Wikipedia, this lack impact contributions in Fulfulde Language in fact there's no any awareness or any event regarding Fulfulde Wikipedia was done in Kaduna and in the whole North West some people use to ask us why there's no fulfulde Wikipedia? and we tell them that there's is fulfulde in Wikipedia but the activities of Fulfulde Wikipedia is very low due to the lack of more users as many as required. Many people want to join fulfulde Wikipedia but the absence awareness and training hindered them in joining the movement And Kaduna is the second largest city in northern Nigeria, also centre of learning the fulfulde Wikipedia event or any awareness in Kaduna never take place and there is alot of Native Fulani people in Kaduna because the city is a home to northerners this is the reason why we plan to carry out 10 days trips for awareness this is to promote fulfulde Wikipedia in Kaduna Metropolis we will be walking all over the Kaduna city for 10days including the visiting of some major schools which includes tertiary institutions, colleges and secondary schools we will be sharing fliers and pamphlets during the trips and visiting to the students within the schools and common people in the city and we will select some desired students from each school we have visited to create an account for them and train them. Furthermore we will post 8 billboards to the main roads and junctions within the city.
