Seasons Greetings and a Prosperous 2013
Wikimedia South Africa team wishes all wikimedians around the world a wonderful festive season with family and friends and a prosperous 2013 ahead. This passing year was an exciting year for this South African chapter, many strides were taken to fully establish the chapter as a legal and functioning entity in the country. From the very first press release, the first board meeting and the first wiki meet-up the chapter has grown from strength to strength.
Relationships within private sector, non-profit organizations and some government institutions have been initiated and promises for a good functional partnership on some crucial projects planned for 2013 and beyond. Amongst some of these are the following:
- GLAM Partnerships
- QR Coding projects (Infecting the city)
- Wikipedia in Schools
- Regional Wiki conference
Just to name a few projects on the pipelines. With this we would love to invite you to partake in some of the projects that we are planning for the year ahead. In any sphere of the society you can make a difference by championing Free and Open knowledge. Merry Christmas and a happy 2013 from the volunteers at Wikimedia South Africa!!
