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 started editing Wikipedia in 2015 as join the local User Group of Côte d’Ivoire. Back then, I used to focus on women articles. When the With the Wiki Loves Women initiative was launched in 2016 I edited more regularly and created my first 10 articles that year. I have been editing around 50 articles so far. In 2017 I was elected as Deputy Treasurer of the Wikimedia Community User Group of Côte d’Ivoire (WCUG-CI). During the first phase of Wikimedia 2030 I helped my compatriot User:African Hope in his Strategy Coordinator role. I helped summarize the online strategy discussion (https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Strategy/Wikimedia_movement/2017/Outreach/French_Wikipedia/Volunteers). During Cycle 2 of Wikimedia 2030, in-person brainstorming was organized with GLAM partners. I was the discussion facilitator for Group 1 (https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Strategy/Wikimedia_movement/2017/Sources/Cycle_2/Wikimedia_Community_User_C%C3%B4te_d%27Ivoire_Strategy_meet-up_Abidjan_June_10,_2017)

Also, in 2017, during the pilot phase of the Wiki Education Programme in Côte d’Ivoire, I volunteered as Project Assistant ( https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Wikipedia_Classes_report_-_Pilot_phase_(English).pdf.  My mission was to draft reports of training sessions, remind participants and trainers to attend sessions, ready food. As of today, I am officially a local Wikipedia trainer since I passed the WikiMOOC certification with an 80% score . So this laptop will help me improve my capacities.
