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 have been a member of the organizing team of most of projects organized in Ghana such as Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves Africa, Wiki Indaba 2017, etc. I am moving into local wikis such as the Twi Wikipedia because there is a lot of work to be done in such wikis. I mostly facilitate edit-a-thon events in Ghana which requires the use of a laptop. The laptop I am currently using belongs to the company I work for and is not in a very good condition. There are times, I have to release the laptop to other employees at work so they can use. I would be leading an edit-a-thon workshop at this year’s African Summit on Women and Girls in Technology and using this laptop for this event is going to be difficult and embarrassing at such a gathering. All things Wikimedia will be the sole purpose of the laptop, ranging from editing to technical projects for the Wikimedia movement. I am going to use the laptop for volunteering cases solely for Wikimedia projects.

  •   Strong support I am in support of the idea to have a laptop to aid in Wikimedia activities. Roysandytei (talk) 09:50 , 8 August 2018 (UTC)
  •   Strong support User:Celestinesucess's makes valuable contributions to the Wikimedia project including her active engagement in outreach activities. It'd be sad to see them slow down due to a hardware disability. I trust that they'll use the device for the intended purpose.—M@sssly 12:29, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

  •   Strong support I have participated in about 4 Wikimedia events that User:Celestinesucess have facilitated. I strongly believe getting a replacement for her laptop will enable her to contribute even more to Wikipedia and its sister projects.Shahadusadik (talk) 23:01, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
  •   Strong support User:Celestinesucess is a very active candidate engaged in outreach activities in Ghana, i strongly support her application. Mompati Dikunwane
