OTim75/Info-tourism & Wellness
The distinct aim of this project is to provide free knowledge about the people of Osun state, their activities and cultural hegemony, with the objectives of promoting conscious awareness of the environment to foster a new dimension of view of tourism as an activity that promotes a healthy life, exposure, happiness, cultural integration, conflict settlement, and economic advantages, among others.

Osun State is home to several of Nigeria's most famous landmarks, of which they are not included on the Wiki platform due to the fact that aborigines were not given the opportunity to contribute to the free knowledge platform, so this will be an opportunity for them to contribute.

The project will not only create awareness and information about tourism as an activity that enhances human wellness and integration, but also promote the importance of protecting historical grounds, monuments and artifacts, giving a detailed information about them. Also, it will give a sense of importance to the sustainability of tourism as an activity that needs to be approached as a way of life among Nigerians and to refine and maintain the activity to perform its full potential in human lives and in building a better human community.
