WikiAfrica Education strategy and implementation support

In 2021, NBA developed a strategy for the Moleskine Foundation's WikiAfrica Education initiative. WikiAfrica Education is a platform of empowerment that amplifies voices from Africa to reflect the rich and valuable history, languages, people, and communities of the continent. The vision of WikiAfrica Education is to inspire a new generation of African creative thinkers and doers by increasing production, access, and awareness of contextually and linguistically relevant knowledge resources from Africa. WikiAfrica Education hosts AfroCuration events to achieve this vision. AfroCuration is an online or physical event that combines a Wikipedia edit-a-thon and a cultural or linguistic workshop to train young Africans to become the knowledge creators and let them tell the world about their local culture, community and people in their local language. 

NBA has supported the WikiAfrica Education team by assisting with project implementation, AfroCuration event planning and facilitation, creation of a communications strategy and messaging, developing an openly licensed toolkit for partners to host AfroCuration events, and proposal development.
