In gratitude and cheer, this grant created a spring board for the club to host 9 colorful edithathons where we have had tens of new editors, tens of new articles, hundreds of Common uploads, and thousands of edits. We now have been able to gather a diversity of students across diverse disciplines who advocate for open source learning, eagerly (and ethically) contribute to it, share the experience on their CVs and make awareness among their friends about the community and work that happens beyond the edit buttons.

We have also been able to fill the African content gap on Wikimedia projects and have even more women passionately join the Wikimedia movement.


Please report on your original project targets.

Number of meetings: 12 9 The school calendar and availability of students kept the moderated the number of meetups possible. We had to ensure we were not having empty meetups but kept content and interest extraordinary.
Number of new editors 30 40 We exceeded our target.
80 new articles and more than 1000 edits 70 new articles and more than 3000 edits in meetups and continued thereafter We nearly exceeded our target and believe editors will create more articles on their own.
