Tell us about your proposed project. What will you get achieved with this time?
Describe why you think this project is important, and how the project is different from your normal volunteer contributions. The project intends to project Ghana's independence on Wikipedia using journals, books and newspapers as means of references to new and existing articles. During that time, online activities were not available to capture events that led to the achievement of Ghana's Independence. Newspapers, books and journals were the commonly used for capturing information. Websites were not commonly used during that period so this project seeks to use newspapers etc as citations for articles.
Describe how you (and, if applicable, your team)are able to achieve this project. What skills, expertise, and motivation do you have which will enable you to succeed? I will be the lead trainer of the project so I will train new and existing editors of Wikipedia articles. I have over 10,000 edits count on Wikipedia, Wikidata, Wiki Commons etc. I was the highest contributor and won an award when I participated in a competition organized by OFWA on two different occasions. I have contributed to articles on Arts and Feminism in Wikidata. I am motivated to train others to help achieve the aim of Wikimedia Foundation which is to make knowledge free and accessible to all.
