R. If you would like, please share any websites or social media accounts that your group or organization has.



There is a strategic partnership agreement between the two institutions and they both operate in Denmark and are licensed institutions. This can be confirmed through the links I sent

1. What is the change that you are trying to bring about and why is this important.

Interest in secular and feminist content on Arabic Wikipedia

Develop articles on contemporary topics

Increase diversity in types of contributions to Arabic Wikipedia

Difficulties: The way the Arab Wikipedia community receives such topics, as they are topics that are raised for the first time

Possibility of poor participation due to first-time presentation of ideas in the Arabic Wikipedia community and small initiative

2. Describe your main approaches or strategies to achieve these changes and why you think they will be effective.

The strategy is basically to present contemporary issues for the first time to the Arabic Wikipedia community, despite the difficult situation, but the implementation of such a project will be an entry point for deepening such projects.

The project will contribute to achieving a kind of balance between content placements on Arabic Wikipedia and will have a strong impact on bridging the gender gap in terms of contributions to Arabic Wikipedia.

3. What are the activities you will be developing and delivering as part of these approaches or strategies?

The initiative will provide a special type of articles that are important to increase diversity in Arabic Wikipedia, and the lists will continue to be constantly developed

4. Are your activities part of a Wikimedia movement campaign or event? If so, please select the relevant campaign below. If so, please select all the relevant campaigns from the list below. If "other", please state which.

1Lib1Ref, Art+Feminism, Wiki Loves Women, WikiGap

5. Do you have the team that is needed to implement this proposal?

The team consists of three people who will implement the activities of this project.

6. Please state if your proposal aims to work to bridge any of the identified CONTENT knowledge gaps (Knowledge Inequity)? Select up to THREE that most apply to your work.

Content Gender gap, Age (regency), Geography, Language, Socioeconomic Status, Sexual Orientation, Other global topics for impact (topics considered to be of global importance), Cultural background, ethnicity, religion, racial

6.1 In a few sentences, explain how your work is specifically addressing this content gap (or Knowledge inequity) to ensure a greater representation of knowledge.

Focus on raising issues that concern the rights of individuals

Create a list of articles for secular and feminist content on Arabic Wikipedia

7. Please state if your proposal includes any of these areas or THEMATIC focus. Select up to THREE that most apply to your work and explain the rationale for identifying these themes.

9. Who are the target participants and from which community? How will you engage participants before and during the activities? How will you follow up with participants after the activities?

The main category is the Arabic Wikipedia community In addition to those who would like to join the community to learn about these topics, I will continue to work through my activity on the Arabic Wikipedia

Closing the gaps will be by offering a modern list of topics to be developed on Arabic Wikipedia, which will create diversity in the community and attract underrepresented contributors.

Working to preserve the participants will be through deepening the idea of equality between them and trying to continue cooperation with organizations working in the Arab feminist and secular fields

10. In what ways are you actively seeking to contribute towards creating a safer, supportive, more equitable environment for participants?

Communicate the idea of equality and fair dealing with all potential contributors within the project
