The WikiChallenge African Schools encourages schools across Africa to compete by writing articles on Vikidia (the little sister of Wikipedia) about their city, town, village, suburb, a local landmark or a notable local person using the WikiFundi platform. The competition is a fun introduction to writing encyclopedic articles and will add information about Africa to the global online encyclopedias.
