After five years of exercises, the Republic of Guinea has continued its activities. The activities continue in 2023 with more success than the previous edition, with more successful missions, partnerships and collaborations at national and international level.

Thus, significant face-to-face and online activities with more relevant and diversified content have been carried out, demonstrating a strong commitment from the association's volunteers, all crowned by actions with volunteers from around the world.

This document helps to account for the dynamic initiated since the start of the Guinean user group, 5 years ago.

Our members are growing, especially during face-to-face events organized by the Wikimedia Guinea Conakry user community. This was possible with the support of partners, both strategic and financial for the operationalization of our objectives. Given the context, there have been several partnerships in 2022 that can be classified according to whether they are considered formalized agreements, whether they have simple hosts of events organized by the user group, whether they have granted us funding or that they have associated us with events offering us forums for promoting the free dissemination of knowledge.

A growing volunteer commitment[edit]

Wikimedia Community User Group Guinea Conakry has organized more than '28 events in 7 cities in Guinea (Conakry, Kindia, Forecariah, Boké, Coyah, Kamsar and Labé) and 2 countries including (Burkina Faso and Rwanda) ' divided between workshops, photo outings, contests, meetings, executive office and daily discussions and above all sensitization around free contributions (online and face-to-face).
These activities generated several hours of work and commitment from volunteers'. This commitment is due to 50 volunteers, 50% of whom are women. This large proportion of women in the Association is very remarkable for their strong involvement in photo outings, training and assistance to trainers as facilitators and present within the management staff where they occupy 50% of the positions.

Funding source[edit]

The Guinea Conakry Wikimedia User Group has no sponsors. All current expenses are spent with funds from the Wikimedia Foundation, Wikimedia France and Wikimedia Switzerland and participants' personal funds.
