The Enugu State in-person event organized under the IG Wiki Hub Enugu an arm of the Igbo Wikimedians User Group was held at the National Energy Research Center University of Nigeria, Nsukka. Majority of the participants were new, with no prior knowledge about Wikimedia projects. They were taken through some basics, creating of accounts, basic knowledge of what Wikimedia Foundation is all about. Participants were also educated about Movement Strategy, Movement Charter and the need for language visibility. Our major focus was on translation. Participants were trained on how to translate English to Igbo language on Meta-Wiki. This was very exciting for them particularly as they learnt that they could leverage their translation skills to promote Igbo language and culture. Though, for majority of them, it was their first time of contributing to Wikimedia project, they appreciated the training and experience. Translating the Movement Charter and having it in Igbo language was awesome for the participants.

Majority of the participants came with smart phones, only three persons came with laptops, effort was made to train both mobile phone users and laptop users. Within the timeline given for translation, 20 pages were translated from English to Igbo. See Translation list above for more details. About eight pages were not marked for translation during the translation timeline.


On the day of our event, one of the presidential candidates in the forthcoming Nigeria election visited University of Nigeria Nsukka for campaign. This posed a challenge as everyone wanted to go and listen to the man candidate. Thus, my team and I were worried about the attendance. However, we were overwhelmed at the astonishing attendance.
