The biggest population of Uganda speaks and uses Luganda as a local language but there is limited content in luganda online. This project seeks to bridge the content gap by availing localised content online in Luganda. Wiki4Education will therefore target students in secondary schools to utilise open education resources like Wikipedia, Wikisource in their learning. In turn we will collaborate with the department of languages, Makerere University to avail content relevant to the students' learning. This will be a four months initiative.


  • Train at least five Luganda language teachers on how to use open education resources in their classrooms
  • Work with tertiary institutions to create content to be used by secondary school teachers


  • Increase digital literacy through the use of Wikimedia projects for participating students and teachers.
  • Improve the Luganda wikipedia interface.
  • Create awareness on the use of Luganda Wikipedia in the selected schools.
  • Conduct advocacy meetings for the adoption of Luganda Wikipedia as an education resource in Uganda schools.
  • Increase quality and quantity of the content on luganda wikipedia
