Project Plan[edit]

  2. If participants will be contributing to Wikimedia projects (such as in an edit-a-thon), 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)
    Yes, we have the experience required to bring this project to a successful conclusion.
  3. If participants will be contributing to Wikimedia projects (such as in an edit-a-thon), do participants have the equipment or skills needed to participate and contribute high quality content? If not, how will you support them? (If you are not doing this kind of event, please write N/A or leave the section below blank)
    Yes, some participants will bring their laptops.
  4. How will you promote and let participants know about your Wikipedia 20 event? Please describe or link to the spaces you will be using to inform your community about your activities. Please note there are resources available to support your communications for Wikipedia 20 events.
    Having organized so many movement strategy salons, edit-a-thon, we have lists of participants with phone numbers and emails. Apart from that, we have a mailing list for the User group, WhatsApp group, Twitter, and Facebook page.
  5. How will you keep participants engaged after the event is over? How will you be sharing photos, videos, or other content from your activities after they are completed?
    We will engage the participants through the WhatsApp group and put all the pictures and videos on Wikimedia DRC social media accounts and also on Wikimedia Commons. To keep the momentum going, we are planning one month (February) of WikiPermanence to properly engage new contributors.
  6. 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:
