Its so nice to finally "meet". I was among the guys who took part in the
Kiswahli Wikipedua Challenge. Together with a coupl of others, we started
Wikimedia Kenya with the sole aim of supporting free and educational
content especially local on the internet and providing access to Kenyans.
I have no physical plan on how we can approach this but since we have
just initiated contact, I believe this is the 1st key step. Maybe we can
have a physical meetup with guys from your team and from our team and then
brainstorm on some possible areas of synch and cooperation.We have
an upcoming Chapters meetup sometime next month at the iHub and if you guys
will be around, I would love you to attend and then we pick it from there.I
will inform you on the dates soon.
I would really love to meet with the brains behind this great initiative.
I believe we will be of great benefit to each other working as a team in
achieving our goals.
You can have a glance of what we are/have been working on here:
Meanwhile could the Team members of WMKE please share on some of the
possible ways we could work with this guys? Just to get
the discussion going? Thanks
Look forward to hearing from you.
