Je suis Gilbert Ndihokubwayo, cofondateur du mouvement Wikimédia au Burundi ; mon implication et ma participation en tant que bénévole au projet Wikimédia datent depuis le début des années 2019. Je contribue aux projets Wikimédia et j'ai organisé et coordonné des projets Wikimédia comme Wiki Loves Africa, Wiki Loves Earth, Africa Wiki Challenge ou des éditathons sur la sensibilisation.

Pour le moment, je prévois de mettre en œuvre le programme « Wikipédia en classe » au Burundi pour former et aider les enseignants à comprendre et à utiliser Wikipédia en tant qu'outil d'apprentissage, en le connectant aux composantes du programme Éducation aux médias et à l'information de l'UNESCO. J'ai rencontré et partagé des expériences avec différentes personnalités et j’ai acquis mon expérience au sein de différentes cultures, de formes de socialisation, etc. Au cours de ma formation académique, j'ai acquis des connaissances dans le domaine de la communication et du développement. Dernièrement, tout au long de mes différentes formations, j'ai également appris des méthodes et stratégies d'enseignement et j’ai développé des compétences en stratégie organisationnelle et en management dans le cadre de mon parcours professionnel.

I'm involved in the organization of events to contribute to Wikimedia projects: wikipedia (editathons, Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos, ...), Commons (Wiki Loves Africa, Wiki Loves Earth).

I am also learning the Reading Wikipedia in the Classroom program. This is a professional training program of Wikimedia that aims to help teachers understand and leverage Wikipedia as a learning tool by connecting it to the components of UNESCO’s Media and Information Literacy framework. The program helps to learn vital media and information literacy skills for the 21st century, including: understanding how information is produced, how to access and evaluate content online.

I have the capacity of machine learning, I can develop sample forms to collect and analyze information.

Expériences vécues dans le monde. Nous sommes particulièrement intéressés par les expériences vécues dans les régions d'Afrique, d'Asie du Sud, d'Asie de l'Est et du Sud-Est et du Pacifique, et d'Amérique latine et des Caraïbes. Nous pensons que l'expérience dans ces régions pourrait aider à élargir la capacité du conseil à atteindre l'objectif de la stratégie du mouvement, à savoir une participation plus équitable, même si nous reconnaissons que d'autres expériences peuvent également constituer des contributions importantes.

During my travels to countries other than my native country, I met with different personalities with whom I could share life experience, culture, socialization, etc.

In December 2016, I participated in the 6th African Esperantist Congress held in Tanzania in the city of Bunda. During this congress, I had the opportunity to discuss with people from countries like Tanzania, Kenya, Togo, France, Brazil, Hungary, Iceland, Japan, Korea.

In August 2017, I participated in the international congress of young Esperantists in Togo, in the city of Aneho. It was an opportunity for me to meet and share experience with people from Togo, Ghana, Benin, Rwanda, DRC, South Africa, France, Italy, Germany, etc.

In September 2019, I have taken part in the East Africa Strategy Summit, East Africa stategy discussions. During the Summit in Kampala, I have met and shared experiences with wikimedians from different countries, among others Ugandans, Rwandans, Kenyans, Ethiopians, DRC, American, Ghana, Tanzanians. We have shared our hopes and expectations from the event, the common themes included bringing together the East African region, spreading awareness of Wikimedia and free knowledge in East Africa, learning about Wikimedia and Creative Commons projects, and community growth.

I have also made visiting trips to countries in the sub-region, including Rwanda and Kenya, which have helped me to learn from others in their ways.

I also had the opportunity to learn from others about teaching practices and methodologies, such as the Zagreb method and the production of teaching materials.

I learned English as my second language in school. It is a language that I use in various situations with at least an intermediate level. Apart from that I frequently speak French. French is my first language of learning since I was in elementary school and I use it very often in my daily life.

I am also fluent in Esperanto, and in fact I am a teacher of this language. During my career in Esperanto, I have participated in various events that have allowed me to learn theories and practices as in pedagogy and language teaching. Esperanto has allowed me to learn about the cultures of others. In congresses, we have often organized sessions of language festival, an opportunity for people to get aware with the culture of the countries through its linguistic specificities, its music and dances, its cuisine, its way of dressing, etc. Apart from these languages, I also speak Kirundi and Swahili as my mother tongues. Kirundi is the national language of Burundi and is spoken all over the country; the language has a great similarity with Rwanda, the language of the neighboring country, and therefore, it is very easy for a Burundian and a Rwandan to exchange. Burundi and Rwanda, we share a lot since the history of our two countries, the culture, dances, ways of life, etc. Swahili is a language of the sub-region. With Swahili, we find ourselves at home in Burundi, Tanzania, part of the DRC, Kenya, a little in Uganda.

I am a founding member of the [Community User Group Burundi], an initiative born in 2019 from three people after attending the East Africa Strategy Summit held in Kampala, Uganda. Since then I have been able to organize events through which community members have made contributions to Wikimedia projects, including editathons on Wikipedia, Africa Wiki Challenge in Burundi; photo contributions on Commons through events like Wiki Loves Africa, Wiki Loves Earth in Burundi.

Actually, I am about to implement the Reading Wikipedia in the Classroom program, a Wikimedia program to teach vital media and information literacy skills for the 21st century.

Apart from the Wikimedia movement, I am a founding member of an association of consumers of information and communication technologies, an association that aims to promote the quality of service offered by telephone operators, the compliance of technical standards of telecommunications equipment made available to consumers and help resolve complaints. We founded the association in April 2013 and currently have more than one hundred members. We also supervise people who want to engage in self-development activities to better appropriate information and communication technologies in order to fight against poverty.

In the Esperanto movement, I am currently responsible for the teaching of Esperanto in Burundi and I have been able to reorganize the language learning clubs. In 2020, I toured all the provinces of the country visiting the clubs in order to encourage the members. This had a very positive impact, new clubs were created, and clubs were revitalized.

Our country, Burundi, has experienced political turbulence based on ethnicity. This unrest caused many deaths and losses. However, we have experienced a post-war period, a period of reconciliation and pacification of the country. Different organizations have emerged to educate youth on mutual reconciliation. Nowadays in Burundi, ethnicity stories have no place anymore, the population has finally understood that the war that the country experienced was not really a question of ethnicity, but rather was for the interests of politicians.

This war had repercussions with neighboring countries (fighting, training and refugee camps, embargo) and officially ended in 2005 with sporadic violence after that date. In August 2000, a first agreement was signed, but without the National Liberation Forces and the Forces for the Defense of Democracy. A new transitional constitution was promulgated on October 28, 2001, establishing an "ethnic" alternation of power, with the presidency and vice-presidency changing every 18 months, alternating Tutsis and Hutus. Despite sustained military activity by Hutu armed groups, some of the National Liberation Forces laid down their arms on October 7, 2002, and the Forces for the Defense of Democracy agreed to participate in the peace process on October 8, 2003, with a final agreement reached on November 16.
