Hi Shahadu,

I saw your post applying for a grant to come to Canada for a Commons event. I'm a librarian from the U.S. and I've been invited to travel to Mafi Gborkope, Ghana this July to help build a library there as part of the African Library Project.

I attended OpenCon in Washington, DC this past November and have become very interested in the Open Movement as well as the Wikimedia Foundation. In addition to assisting with the library while on the trip, I'd like to tie this trip to a Wikimedia project. I see that you do work with the Commons- I'd like to know if you see any potential Wikimedia projects in the kind of trip I'm taking. I've never been to Ghana or the African continent so I can't pretend to presume any needs.

If you have any ideas, I'd love to hear them.

  • @Seltzerlibrarian: I don't know if you ever received my reply by email. I am not sure why I failed to respond to your message here. I sincerely apologise for that and I believe your trip to Ghana was great!. I am currently working on a Wikimedia project with librarians. Would be happy to chat.

Tell us about Dagbani WikipediaEdit

I have just started a FAQ at Tell us about Dagbani Wikipedia. As one of the key members of the Dagbani Wikimedians User Group, perhaps you can share some more insights. Sabon Harshe (talk) 02:19, 29 July 2021 (UTC)[]

Looks great. Thanks for starting that. I will take a look. Regards. Shahadusadik (talk) 09:03, 29 July 2021 (UTC)[]
