[African Wikimedians] 2020 Community Spotlight Survey

Hello Wikimedians

In these difficult times many of us miss the chance to connect in person with other Wikimedians. We miss the events and meetings where we could learn from and about each other. So we thought to use this time to learn more about the great people that make up our communities. We would like to give some of them a bit of a spotlight in our virtual spaces like our blogs and social media in the absence of physical connection points.

Do you know a community member who has accomplished something new or inspiring in the last year? Someone who you think the rest of the community should know about? If so, please take a few minutes and nominate them in the survey below.

Let us know about their inspiring work, whatever form it took, online or offline. This can include but is not limited to adding important content directly to one of our projects, encouraging and supporting others in adding content, teaching the public about Wikipedia or other Wikimedia projects, building partnerships, or organizing events and helping your local community thrive. We are also curious to learn about the different ways people enrich our movement!

Use the following link to take the survey.

Thank you in advance for helping us highlight more wonderful people and accomplishments from all over the world!
