A collaboration between the francophone groups of the Wikimedia movement

Ce plan d'action n'est plus à jour : nos objectifs, bien qu'alignés avec ceux exprimés ici, ont un peu changé. Pour l'instant, nos nouveaux objectifs sont disponibles en anglais, sur l'onglet affiliation. À partir d'octobre 2020, nous espérons pouvoir détailler un plan d'action plus clair ici.

WikiFranca is an initiative to coordinate user groups and francophone chapters. It aims to develop free knowledge by encouraging contributions to Wikimedia projects and promoting collaboration between the various organizations and groups of the Wikimedia movement through the Francophonie. It responds to the reality of Wikimedia projects in French, which concern the entire Francophonie.

Medium-term vision (2 to 3 years)

WikiFranca aims to be recognized within the Wikimedia movement and externally as representative of the interests and projects of Francophone communities.


  • WikiFranca wishes to evolve to obtain the status of thematic group within the Wikimedia movement in the medium term.
  • WikiFranca is a reliable interlocutor for the Francophonie institutions and for the Wikimedia Foundation.
  • WikiFranca has its own budget to support the initiatives of Francophone volunteers.
  • WikiFranca highlights local initiatives and projects and aims to support the emergence of new autonomous communities.

These four steps will build a two-sided collective that will speak to the foundation and partners as needed, but will highlight the particulars of each and every one of the public and within it.

  • Establish a communication plan for les réseaux sociaux pour promouvoir les différentes actions menées par les communautés francophones.e interne ː Ax 2

External Strategy ː Axis 1, Objectives 2 and 3 Educate Western communities on the use and reliability of non-Western written sources and (perhaps in the medium term) radio or podcasted oral sources, thus validated by professional journalists. Coordination of a week of sourcing workshops, on the 1lib1ref mode, described here The Wikipedia Library / 1Lib1Ref, where the rule is to add only sources

  • written by non-Western authors (including diaspora)
  • published by publishing houses or non-Western editorial offices
  • broadcast by French-speaking / non-Western radio stations, leaving their content available online
  • Western broadcasts giving voice to non-Western guests

These sources are added to existing sections of articles or by creating new sections / paragraphs / articles as needed.

As for the month of the contribution, the workshops are organized locally.

Some short-distance transportation scholarships.

External axis 1 objective 3 and External axis 2 objective 2

Determine a day or a weekend of simultaneous contribution between two local groups on the same theme, or between a group of non-Western contributors and Western administrators Two groups of contributors decide on a theme of contribution as precise as possible and work simultaneously and by chat. Or a group of non-Western contributors and a group of administrators meet to contribute on a specific theme.


Improve Lingua Libre


Axis 1 objective 2 to develop Lingua Libre in such a way that it can first of all accommodate the linguistic diversity that lies behind Francophonie eventually, make it a tool for recording oral sources.

Through a series of hackathons (spread over 2 or 3 years) and Lingua Libre's development plan, make it suitable for hosting as many recordings as possible, to be an important linguistic tool and prepare it to serve as a tool for uploading oral sources on Wikimedia Commons. The reliability of these sources will be ensured by other means. -

Broadcast of Offline Wikipedia in Africa West Africa and French-speaking Africa A large part of the population does not know Wikipedia or does not have easy access to the internet. This access, when it exists, is not regular and it is quite expensive. Internal Strategy ː Axis 1 External Strategy ː Axis 2, Objectives 1 and 3

'Awareness on Wikipedia'

By bringing Wikipedia Offline to communities located in areas without internet access, it is necessary to make them first aware of the rich content of the encyclopedia.
'Using Wikipedia Offline'
It's about showing them how to use Wikipedia Offline, doing a lot of hands-on exercises and teaching them how to copy it to spread it further around them.

'General framework'

Sensitization to Wikipedia and Wikipedia Offline will be done during training days in the cities or villages concerned.

'Training of trainers'

About twenty trainers are needed for the first phase of the project. Their training is scheduled for two days, separated by two days for implementation.

'Training days in cities'

It will first be necessary to inform the administrative authorities of the city, then to contact the school principals, the censors of the high schools and the heads of staff of the stations of health.

Participation in the training day will be done by prior registration, and the number of participants limited.

'Training of trainers'
  • Foreign trainer fees
  • teaching materials
  • 20x participant fee

'Days in the cities'

  • trainer's trip
  • trainer accommodation
  • participating fees
