As we head for the long holiday: what’s next for the University Students Wikimedians Communities in Tanzania?

Ongoing training on our last meetup in Iringa

Who are we and what do we do.

University Students Wikimedians (USW) is a Wikimedia-based program focused on engaging and creating awareness among Colleges and Universities Students on the Wikimedia projects and Movement. It is a program currently (2022) being run in three regions (Morogoro, Dodoma, and Iringa regions) in Tanzania.

The program was initially started as an experiment back in 2019 in the Morogoro region and became fully operational in July 2021. The experimental period was focused on what ways students can be engaged in different Wikimedia projects through volunteering and what ways would be best to organize these communities while accommodating their life hood as students. So far the program has participated in different national and international campaigns.

What’s next during this holiday?
