Explain your planEdit

Tell us about how you contribute currently, and how you would contribute if WMF were to gift a used laptop to you.

I discovered Wikipedia at the same time as Commons in 2018 during the 2018 Contribution Month i'm Automatic patrollers, Filemover on commons. Apart from my significant contributions on Wikipedia and wiki Commons, I decided to devote from this year 2020 a little of my time to Wikivoyage project.

For my contributions, I used to use a desktop computer and sometimes a laptop which were assigned to me in the professional context. A situation that limits my contributions and does not allow me to organize enough training on the WMF project. In addition, large amounts of socked data slow down the functioning of computers.

If gifted a laptop; i will be consecrated only to WMF project and will allow me to densify my contributions on Wikicommons and Wikipedia and especially fr.Wikivoyage on the countries of West Africa where there is a large information gap to fill on those countries. I will organize more training to encourage more volunteer contributors and create another user group in a few months.
