Grants:Project/Rapid/Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos at Maun Technical College (MTC)

Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos (MTC)
campaign where Wikipedians from the community add photos to wikimedia project pages without images. This is to promote the use of digital media files collected from various photography contests, organized by the Wikimedia community, on Wikipedia article pages. Photos improve readers experience, illustrate content, and make articles engaging. The campaign would also help sharpen and improve the skills of new and existing editors. The campus has a good internet connectivity thus we dont need help with Internet.
