Wikimedia Fan Club and Network is an outreach program designed by Wikimedia User Group Nigeria (WUGN) with the aim of taking Wikimedia projects to all the tertiary institutions and states in Nigeria.
The program was first conceptualized to support the result of the New Readers Outreach Survey conducted in Nigeria in the year 2016. The result of the survey revealed that only 23% internet users in Nigeria are aware of Wikipedia. Out of the 23% population that have shown awareness of Wikipedia are the Nigerian students with 43%. It also worthy of note that more than 90% Nigerian only perceive Wikipedia as a search engine.
Building upon recommendation 9, our team has taken a closer look at establishing fan clubs and networks in various instittions in Nigeria.
