Kumusha takes wiki is a community activation initiative project that aims to add and change the kind of knowledge that is available online about Uganda. It also aims to challenge the notion that there is a ‘type’ of person that can contribute knowledge to global information sources, such as Wikipedia.
This project will look at activating up to 10 communities in Uganda. These include communities like universities, food communities, coffee growers, fishing communities, writers, poets etc. I have already had the honor of meeting some university, writers and poetry communities. The project encourages people in these communities to contribute knowledge about their homes, passions, country etc. Through this initiative a community of Wikipedians will be activated to sustain the aims of this project.
This project inspires me every time I reach out to a community and they are able to understand the concept of knowledge sharing. I look forward to networking and meeting all these wonderful communities.
