WikiFundi: Creating Wikipedia Articles Offline

March 1, 2022

Did you know that less than 40% of Africans have access to the internet, about 90% of children in sub-Saharan Africa do not have access to a computer and around 80% do not enjoy a basic internet connection?

 

Wikipedia provides free access to participate in the creation and sharing of the multiple alternative narratives about Africa, but many people in Africa do not know about this and can not access this platform due to a number of reasons.

 

In this episode, Tony discusses an offline solution that bridges the digital divide called WikiFundi with Wiki In Africa's Co-Lead, Florence Devouard.
