"Wikipedia’s English website attracts an average of around seven billion
views monthly, making it one of the most visited websites in the world.
And yet, it suffers from a paucity of information about Africa. There’s more
information about the country of France than the entire continent of Africa on
Wikipedia, says Sanneh. So, since 2018, the WikiAfrica Education initiative has
been working to change that by enlisting and organizing a new generation of
Africa-based Wikipedia editors. Funded by the Moleskine Foundation, of which
Sanneh is cofounder and CEO, the WikiAfrica Education initiative is a boldly
creative attempt to decentralize Wikipedia — and, in turn, knowledge of Africa
— through contributions from those who know the place best."
