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?

We are going to conduct a series of at least four online webinars to participants, one of them will focus on general instructions on Wikicommons and infoboxes and how to participate in WPWP, the second and third will focus on answering any concerns about any challenges which might face the participants along the way, and the fourth one will be the finale to conclude the contest.

2. How will you let your community know about the event? Please paste links below to where relevant communities have been notified of your proposal, and to any other relevant community discussions.

We will use our social media platforms and the meta page to let people know about the project.

3. Do you have experienced Wikimedia editors to lead the event?

Yes, we have at least 4 experienced editors to handle the project facilitation activities.

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

Many of them have the required tools for the project. We will rent a few devices (laptops) for active Wikimedians who will need support.

5. How will you engage participants after the event(s)?

We will encourage participants to follow our social media platforms to keep track of all ongoing projects and any post project activities.

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

This is one of the important projects in Nigeria as many articles related to Nigeria in both English Wikipedia have no images.
