Theresa's ability to speak Afrikaans fluently has also allowed Wikimedia ZA to reach out and connect with the Afrikaans Wikipedia community. One of the most active and vibrant of the African language communities on Wikipedia. Prior to her arrival we had only very limited communication with the Afrikaans community due to a lack of adequate Afrikaans language speakers amongst the Wikimedia ZA board. This as since been rectified some what and we have now elected a member of the Afrikaans Wikipedia community to our board. Without Theresa's assistance this would not have been possible.
