Draft report
This is a draft of a grant report for a grant funded for fiscal year 2017-18. Please do not respond or comment on it just yet: it's not yet ready for review. To read the approved grant submission, please visit Grants:Kipala.


We consider the project a success. We met our goals as far as the workshop could go. Before the workshop we had a period of intense cooperation with volunteer readers-correctors from the Astronomy and Space Science Association of Tanzania ASSAT. We had high ranking specialists from the Institute of Swahili Research who participated in a number of workings sessions. The feedback was throughout positive.


Please report on your original project targets.

Target outcome Achieved outcome Explanation
Add or improve content over 290 articles were revised and corrected by ASSAT members the revisions were assembled into a manuscript which was the basis for the work at the workshop together with the collected remarks and proposals
discuss proposed revisions of the texts from swwiki prepared by members of Astronomy and Space Science Associaton of Tanzania (ASSAT) done The working sessions on Saturday and afternoon I centered on tzhe proposals and assembled criticism, were discussed with input from specialists of the Institute of Swahili Research
enter these revisions into the online articles of swwiki done we worked in in partner teams of one ASSAT member and one experienced wikipedian
Hand over manuscript to Institute of Swahili Research still open. We remain with selection of proposed images for the articles (selection from commons)
getting a book of content taken from wikipedia open , is up to Institute of Swahili Research

   enhance standing and image of wikipedia by getting a book of content taken from wikipedia on this specialized subject printed by Dar University in academic circles in East Africa (probably by much higher degree than Swahili Wikipedia actually deserves). A book will reach people in positions and age groups who in East Africa do not do much of internet research and and have mistrust in online materials especially wikipedia.
   sidegoal: introducing wikipedia and maybe recruit new editors from participating ASSAT members
