WikiAfrica facilitates access to information, while encouraging knowledge sharing and archiving. WikiAfrica aims at expanding and improving the information available online about Africa. WikiAfrica considers Wikipedia and Wikimedia as an extended international forum, capable of giving Africa a voice and visibility.

Wikipedia is an online, multilingual, open encyclopedic project. On Wikipedia, contents are collaboratively written by volunteers from all around the world.  

The project WikiAfrica is designed to Africanize Wikipedia through networking, researches, projects, publications, and events. WikiAfrica contributes both online and offline to Wikimedia projects with texts, quotes, images, audio and video files. In order to achieve its mission, WikiAfrica is divided into different areas of intervention. On Wikipedia you can see how the project unfolds. 
WikiAfrica is open to the active participation of all institutions, organizations, and individuals who share its mission statements.
