Grants:Project/Rapid/Godstime Elijah/Follow Up Edith-a-thon For Corp Members Campaign in Ilorin

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Godstime Elijah/Wikipedia Edith-a-thon For Corp Members in Ilorin.
Based on the success that was recorded during the Wikipedia Promotion Campaign to Ilorin for Corpers. This editathon is aimed at organising a practical session for these Corp members to put what they've learnt into practice.

These corp members requested for subsequent opportunity for them to be productively engaged after the campaign.

As a result the team was compelled to come up with this was editathon in order to ensure active participation of the newbies in the Wikimedia Movement.
