I began as a volunteer under a tutelage of Sadik Shahadu of Dagbani Wikimedia User Group. Through his guidance and support I was able to organise promising volunteers to kick start the Moore Wikimedia Community. It is solely focused on archiving the language and its people, providing digital skills and recruiting new editors across the world.
I offer one-on-one training programs for people on English Wikimedia to help bridge the African information gap.
