Tanzanian University Students Wikimedians User Group (TUSWUG) is a user group of Wikimedia editors dedicated to promoting Wikimedia projects by involving mostly Secondary, College, and University Students in Tanzania. We also help, encourage and educate Swahili-speaking users and communities on the importance of open source, knowledge sharing, and other educational initiatives through our training and events which the group organizes. 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 Swahili and other languages.
- To engage and encourage more students to become contributors to 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.
- To conduct Wikipedia weekly and monthly meetups and grow a community of students from Tanzania
- To establish Wikipedia clubs in different educational institutions.
- Organizing Wikipedia edit-a-thons for students in Tanzania
The founding of University Students Wikimedians was initially brought up by Wikipedia enthusiasts Magoiga Mtatiro while participating in an edit-a-thon under Wikimedia Community User Group Tanzania in Dar es Salaam. The idea was then shared with some of the members of Wikimedia Community User Group Tanzania including the co-founder Antoni Mtavangu and all approved the idea to be a good initiative.
In 2019, the program was initiated as an experimental project in the Alfagems Secondary School in Morogoro: where the main aim was to learn and understand what would be the main interests of students and they would love the program to lead. The experimental program was driven from 2019 to May 2022 when the project was moved officially from experimental into full operations where the target was moved from secondary students to Colleges and Universities.

- TUSW Swahili Climate Voices 2023
TUSW Swahili Climate Voices 2023: Making Waves, Changing Minds, Preserving Our Planet.
Join us as we launch the groundbreaking TUSW Swahili Climate Voices Campaign in the heart of Tanzanian University Students Wikimedians. This innovative campaign, hosted on Wikimedia platforms, aims to amplify the voices and stories of our local communities, inviting the world to understand the immediate and palpable impacts of climate change on our society.
Climate change isn't just a global issue; it's a local one, too. In Tanzania, we're feeling the heat, the floods, and the changes. This is our moment to share our stories, our struggles, and our solutions, all in our native Swahili, with the rest of the world.
The TUSW Swahili Climate Voices Campaign is a chance to weave together local knowledge, scientific data, and personal narratives into a powerful tapestry of understanding. This campaign will harness the power of the Wikimedia community to ensure that our voices are heard, our realities are recognized, and our actions are documented for future generations.
Climate change has no borders. It's a challenge we must face together. Join us and let's ensure our voices resonate across the globe, inspiring others to join in our fight for a sustainable and resilient future.
Step into the vibrant Swahili-speaking world, explore the complexities of climate change through our eyes, and become part of a global movement for change. With the Swahili Climate Voices Campaign, we're not just writing history – we're shaping the future!
Let's spark the conversation, share our wisdom, and create a chorus of Swahili voices that can't be ignored. We believe in the power of knowledge, the strength of community, and the ability of each voice to make a difference.
Join the TUSW Swahili Climate Voices Campaign. Together, let's make our voices echo louder than the approaching storm. Together, let's change the narrative of climate change.
