Kanuri Wikimedians User Group

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Welcome to

       Kanuri Wikimedians User Group  

Kanuri Wikimedians User Group is a user-group of Wikimedia editors dedicated to promote Wikimedia projects in Kanuri language and topics related to its people, culture, society, history and beyond. We will also help, encourage and educate Kanuri-speaking users and communities on the importance of open source, knowledge sharing and other educational initiatives through the training and events which the group will be organizing. The group is open to membership by interested individuals with shared interests.


  • To promote Wikimedia projects
  • To promote editing of Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects both in Kanuri and other languages.
  • To engage and encourage more Kanuri speakers to become contributors of the Wikimedia projects.
  • To organize in-person events for local community Wikipedians/Wikimedians by providing them with resources needed to enhance both their skills and ability for the development of the Wikimedia projects in Kanuri language and other Wikipedia sister projects.


The user group will be organising

  • Meet-ups for its members in order to exchange ideas and to find ways to support them to continue editing the projects in areas where they would need help.
  • Edit-a-thons to help new Wikipedians learn editing techniques, to create, translate and improve the content in all Wikimedia projects or work on and develop a certain topic which will in return promote the project.
  • Editing contests the group will be organizing editing contests to encourage existing regular editors to keep editing Wikimedia projects and also encourage non-members/users to join.
  • Photographic Contest and trips the group will also organise trips and contests to encourage users to upload and document files to commons which will be used in all Wikimedia projects.
