Charity profile

Wiki In Africa's aim is global access for all to open knowledge that reflects the diverse cultures, biodiversities, peoples, and histories of the African continent with the same depth and breadth as other knowledges.

It does this by empowering and engaging the people of Africa and its diaspora to collect, develop and contribute educational and relevant content that relates to the theme of Africa under a free license. It engages with global knowledge systems by encouraging access to, awareness of, and support for open knowledge, the open movement and the Wikimedia projects. Essential to its work is collaboration with like-minded organisations. It is a financial and legal structure behind some of the global initiatives that support of the WikiAfrica movement.
