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.

We will spend seven days running the Program. In the first six days I and other participants will be touring Azare town especially important places including schools distributing Flyers containing Wikimedia Foundation informations. And we will keep people informed about the Wikimedia Foundation. But we will focus on Hausa Wikipedia. We will also focus on photography of Monuments, Buildings, Cultures and Foods to promote Commons.

On the last day we will also host an event which will be a Workshop and Edit-a-thon of Hausa Wikipedia and Commons
