  5. Support Support Aman ADO Wikimédia Côte d'Ivoire Reçoit de plus en plus d'Adhérents et de synpathisants. Vue son élargissement, il faut plus d'espace. Le projet d’aménagement d'espace est donc le bienvenue. Nous encourageons la Fondation Wikimedia à le soutenir. (talk) 18:17, 22 July 2017 (UTC)
