Project Plan[edit]


  1. What kind of event(s) or activities are you planning to hold for your Wikipedia 20 event? Please let us know if these events include a meetup, edit-a-thons, workshops, photowalks, contests, or any kind of campaign.
    For Wikipedia20, we would like mainly to raise awareness about Wikipedia. We would like Beninese to know more about Wikipedia how to use it, how to contribute to it and also spot lights on volunteer who contribute to it. For that we are going to:
    • Create an awareness video about Wikipedia and the Wikimedia movement. The video will be shared on social media channels.
    • Members of the community will attend a TV program to talk about Wikipedia and the Wikimedia movement
    • Create a newspaper article to present wikipedia and the Wikimedia movement
    • Send a "thank you" card to our volunteer editors and partners + Some Wikipedia gadgets
  2. If participants will be contributing to Wikimedia projects (such as in an editathon), do you have experienced Wikimedia editors to lead the event? (If you are not doing this kind of event, please write N/A or leave the section below blank)
  3. If participants will be contributing to Wikimedia projects (such as in an editathon), do participants have the equipment or skills needed to participate and contribute high quality content?
