Paid WikiCamp and websiteEdit
This year we have decided to widely promote the Wikicamps in order to find potential paying participants. We have advertised the camps on various social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin. This was also introduced to different groups in Armenia such as IWAY (International Women’s Association of Yerevan), AYWA (Armenian Young Women’s Association), Repat Armenia, InterNations Yerevan and many other NGOs.
We have also designed a separate website entirely dedicated to Wikicamps (wikicamps.org). This gets updated and refreshed depending on Wikicamp dates and activities. Our website has all the information on the Wikicamp activities, organizers, locations and the dates. It also has the previous participants stories and beautiful visuals.
We are actively involved with parents through correspondence and most of them have expressed a gratitude to our team and the work we are doing in Armenia.
“Wikicamp, however, is a place where I always want to return. And there are few things in the world that you want to experience again and again.” - Anahit Ghazakhetsyan
“Wikicamp is unique because along with the sport games, hiking, different contests we also play intellectual games and, which is most important, edit Wikipedia. This develops our translation skills and makes us smarter. Wiki unites editors with the same ideas - free knowledge and free content for everyone.” - Karine Hovhannisyan
