Project PlanEdit


Tell us how you'll carry out your project. Be sure to answer the following questions:

1. What is your promotion plan?
You can do a campaign involving billboards or rickshaw announcements to promote a Wikimedia projects, such as Santali Wikipedia, at different places in a city. You can promote an online campaign such as Wiki Loves Monuments on Facebook, Twitter, etc using ads. You can also create gifs/slideshows or other easy to make multimedia files and use them to promote your project on social media.

In this project we plan to provide an Online and offline awareness for Fulbe, offline by visiting different places and settlements of Fulɓe people. During the visitation we planned to explain what Wikimedia Projects is all about, especially for the native Fulɓe people, we will give them phamlet as a guide and invite the interested ones among them to an upcoming schedule training for Fulɓe Wikipedia, where they will be train on how to edit Wikipedia and create articles.
Online by making 5 days awareness about Fulbe Wikipedia, to promote the wiki in social media, by creating Fulbe Wikipedia channels on social media, with a plan and strategy in attracting the attention of Fulbe people to join.

2. How will you let your community know about the promotion campaign?
Please paste links below to where relevant communities have been notified of your proposal, and to any other relevant community discussions.

I have notified Fulɓe native offline, they should prepare for the event to take place, also online in Fulɓe Wikipedia discussion pages below.

3.Do you have any experience in promoting Wikimedia projects either online or offline?
Were you involved in a similar project in the past? Do you have any other experience related to online/offline promotion?

Yes I have both online and offline experience, I have successfully carried out Online Hausa Wikipedia Awareness, it is during Online Hausa Wikipedia Awareness that I encounter many Fulɓe people and natives, as I explained during the Project report, we receive many request to train Fulbe people, finally we decided to engage them for better Wikimedia activities in Fulbe Wikipedia.

4. What is your post-promotion plan?
What do you plan to do after your campaign ends?

After the campaign has ended, I will stay in torch with the interested editors, as we currently have a WhatsApp group for Fulɓe Wikimedians on Whattsapp, I squeeze to show them how edit and navigate in editing process.

5. Are you running any in-person events or activities? If so, you will need to complete the steps outlined on the Risk Assessment protocol related to COVID-19. When you have completed these steps, please provide a link to your completed copy of the risk assessment tool below:

Yes there is two in person event.

6. Is there anything else you want to tell us about this project?

This project is highly needed to take place, because this is the first time project will take place in Fulbe Wikipedia, because We receive many requests from Fulɓe community to show them how they can take part in Wikimedia Movement right from the moment we are carrying Online Hausa Wikipedia Awareness. Fortunately, we stick with some of them and I think this is the right moment to empower Fulɓe community into Wikimedia Movement as their engagement is very low, as you see in the impact analysis Let's engage them towards 2030.
