WikiAfrica encourages anyone who is enthusiastic about Africa and subjects relating to the continent to share their knowledge by contributing to Wikipedia.

For many new editors, Wikipedia can be an intimidating and confusing place to begin editing. WikiAfrica has created the WikiAfrica Incubator within Wikipedia to support and assist new authors as they create their first articles in Wikipedia. It follows the basic rules and principles of Wikipedia. More experienced Wikipedians help to develop these articles until they are ready to be moved into the main namespace.

Get Started! Register to be a Wikipedian here.

Visit the WikiAfrica Incubator here. Currently, all migrated articles from the Incubator appear as italicised. You are welcome to help improve the articles not yet migrated into Wikipedia fulltime.
