Who we are
After the recognition of Wikimedia MA User Group on the 6th of October 2015 by the WMF Affiliations Committee, the local user group was founded by Reda Benkhadra, Ismael Zniber and Anass Sedrati to represent Wikimedians in Morocco.
Wikimedia MA User Group seeks to contribute actively to the dissemination, improvement and advancement of free knowledge and culture through the development and distribution of encyclopedias, collections of quotations, books and other educational compilations of documents, especially in the languages spoken in Morocco.
The user group aims to support Wikimedia projects that are directly or indirectly related to Morocco. It also aims to support Moroccan Wikimedians and to become in the near future a recognized chapter of Wikimedia in Morocco.
Wikimedia MA User Group plans to host outreach events, such as edit-a-thons and training sessions, around the country where experienced editors and newcomers can contribute to the Wikimedia projects together. We also plans to work with institutions to improve the quality of content on Wikipedia:
