The User Group of the Wikimedia Community of Haiti is organizing a Wikipedia Contributor's Day in the city of Les Cayes, the capital of the South department, namely at the American University of the Caribbean (Cayes), this Friday, May 21, 2021. This is the first Wikipedian workshop of its kind in a university setting in Haiti and in the city of Les Cayes. The beneficiaries will be the students of the aforementioned university who, for the most part, do not know how to contribute to Wikipedia. The contributions will focus on subjects that directly concern their city: Les Cayes, located 200.1 km from Port-au-Prince. The group is already planning to create a wiki-club in this city, which is rich in history, historical sites, heritage and local and traditional knowledge. At the same time, a photo hunt will be organized during an afternoon in this Haitian commune. The images will be uploaded on wikimedia commons.

Overall objective: Mobilize the Haitian academic community into a community around the digital commons.

Specific Objectives: Introduce about 50 students and administrative staff of the American University of the Caribbean to the wikimedia movement
