Project PlanEdit


Tell us how you'll carry out your project. What will you and other organizers spend your time doing?

Wikivoyage 360 is a project that is going to provide information guide to travelers in and outside Ghana. This project is aimed at improving the contribution on wikivoyage. The reason why I am undertaking this project is because there is less contribution on various key places in Ghana on wikivoyage and I believe I can make a difference in providing more useful article.
With this project I would be travelling to all ten (10) regions of Ghana to get information on various towns and ensure that travelers get access to it on wikivoyage.
Travels would be made on the weekend twice of every month to various ten (10) regions. On those two weekends (Saturdays and Sundays) I would have to get a tour guide of the town who would help me access valuable information that will be accurate enough to be available as a contribution on wikivoyage. This contribution would include places of notability thus Hospitals, Schools, Restaurants, Chop Bars, Football Parks and so on in every town I visit in a region.

These contribution would be relevant to everyone around the world.

  • I support this project because contribution would be made on wikipedia, wikimedia commons and wikidata (Richest Kid (talk)
  • I endorse this project because it will help put data of places of interest and tourists sites all over Ghana on the internet to educate them on the places they can visit when they travel to Ghana.Myraclera (talk) 13:40, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
