Project Plan[edit]


Tell us how you'll carry out your project. Be sure to answer the following questions:

1. Are you doing one editathon or training or a series of editathons or trainings?

This will be a 3 days series of training in kaduna metropolis

2. How have you let relevant Wikimedia communities know about this proposal? You are required to provide links to on-wiki pages to inform these communities about your proposed work. Examples of places where this can be done include community discussion pages, affiliate discussion pages, or relevant project talk pages.
You may also provide information about external social media channels you may be using.

Through community portal and our existing social media groups. I already informed then here is the link. 3. How will you let participants know about the edit-a-thon? In what ways will you be communicating with them?
For example, these can include on-wiki spaces, social media channels, mailing lists, messaging apps, or physical/online gatherings.

Our already existed social media groups on WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram.

4. Do you have experienced Wikimedia editors to lead the event? Please provide links to the usernames of these individuals.
For example: User:I JethroBT


5. Do participants have the equipment or skills needed to participate and contribute high quality content? If not, how will you support them?

Editors down here are using their mobile phones for editing and it's one of the reasons we decide to hold this trainings because most of the editors are not aware of how to upload photos and videos in wiki Commons.

And we can support them by Data for the trainings and uploads. 6. How will you engage participants after the event(s)?

Through our social media groups.

7. Are you running any in-person events or activities? If so, you will need to complete the steps outlined on the Risk Assessment protocol related to COVID-19. When you have completed these steps, please provide a link to your completed copy of the risk assessment tool below:

8. Is there anything else you want to tell us about this project?

This project will help immensely in seeing that our editors know how to upload photos and videos not only that they will also know what to upload and what not to. What is in public domain and what is free to be used in wiki commons.
