On Friday 14th of October 2016, the agency E-voir, Wikimédia Côte d’Ivoire Head office, hosted its first ‘contribution parties’ session as part of the Wiki Loves Women project.

Aimed at encouraging the contribution of content for the project Wiki Loves Women, the first session of the ‘contribution parties’ managed to gather around ten wikimedians who have more than 30 contributions on the wiki platforms.

During two hours, the different activities consisted in creating and improving articles and uploading photos onto Commons. Divided into three teams, the participants were very enthusiasts and warmly welcomed this session as it gave them the opportunity to improve, thanks to the coaching system that was set up for them.

The ‘contribution parties’ are planned to take place every Saturdays until the project Wiki Loves Women ends in Cote d’Ivoire.

We are calling all people who would like to participate. The next session is planned for Friday 21st of October. You must have at least 30 contributions on Wikipedia in order to participate in these sessions.
