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 co-founder of Wikimedia User Group Nigeria and a project manager of the group. Currently, I am working on building community for Yoruba language Wikipedia where I am a sysop (admin). I am also a license reviewer on Wikimedia Commons. I began editing Wikipedia with a mobile phone (blackberry bold 3 and later bold 5) and in 2016 I bought a used laptop. It worked fine for about a year and half but it no longer work effectively. Sometimes, it would trip off for no apparent reason. So, I change the battery but my guess was wrong as the problem continues. Few days ago, the screen was blanked. I need to change my laptop but I am not financially buoyant enough to do so now. If I'm gifted a used laptop, it would help to strengthen my work on Wikimedia Commons and Yoruba Wikipedia. I have stop my translation work on Yoruba Wikipedia for some times now because I cannot assign diacritical marks using a phone. I'll fully resume my translation work once I get the laptop.
