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 am an experienced contributor who joined the English Wikipedia in 2016 with Open Foundation West Africa. I contribute to diverse Wiki platforms as an Administrative Executive, aside that I lead a fact-checking organisation as part of my open movement contributions and also actively involved in bridging the gender gap with wikimedian communities. I am also involved in several offline projects as a community leader in Ghana where I have led many wiki projects ranging from fact- checking workshops, edit-a-thons, Wiki Salon, Radio media Wiki Tours, Decolonising the internet and many cultural and historic events in my country.

I already acquired a laptop through this program before, unfortunately over the first few period of its use, the laptop apparently needs full power always in order to serve its use. It usually freezes often and sometimes impedes my work during presentations or trainings when power cuts. I intend to apply for a replacement because it turned out that I got a faulty one. I wish this replacement will help me continue with my work during trainings and presentations without any interference.
