Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)

The goal is to encourage African communities to write more about other African countries. We aim to dedicate one week each time and call “X Country Week”.

For example we take “Nigeria Week”. What we are looking for here is to celebrate this country and try to add as much information about it as we can. Other African communities are encouraged during this week to create, translate, and improve contents about this country. From the other side, the local community member are required to send their suggestions on what they think other communities should work on.

By the end of the week, many articles would be created, improved, and translated about this country.
