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 a trainer and a leader of an independent affiliate group Kumasi Wiki Hub.I train new editors in my region online and offline meetings.I do organise edit a thons in my community.Currently doing Kiwix training in senior secondary schools in my region.I have trained over 150 students and done over 20 installations in the respective schools.The training focuses on Introduction to Wikipedia .Information Literacy and how to use Kiwix to access wikipedia. This is an advocacy framework for the movement based on the survey done in the schools about their knowledge about Wikipedia and other sister projects.

Having the laptop would make it easier for presentations and also storing the Kiwix installer and all the zim files.

It will also make demonstrations of the various projects on wikipedia very effective.I believe that it will also help in the survey report and documenting the statistics with the kiwix project.The laptop will also be of help storing pictures for commons albeit preparation of presentations for community outreach.It will be of great help in participating in the Wikimedia Greenhouse Education Program.
