I am Alhassan Mohammed Awal. Co-founder of the Dagbani Wikimedians User Group.
I am currently the Communications, Outreach, and Campaigns Director for the User Group. I am also an activist for child rights and girl-child education. My interest in digital activism includes promoting the use of various Wikimedia tools such as Wikipedia, Wikidata, Wikimedia commons, Wiktionary, and any other Digital language support tools available to facilitate my language activism work on the internet.
I want the Dagbani language to go global and fill up every available digital space. I envision having the language recognized by all search engines on the internet. Outside of the Wikimedia community, I am an educationist working in the Ghana Education Service (GES).
