The rapid recording tool have been published online at the Wikimania 2018, Cape Town.

Comments[edit | edit source]

Wikimania is a good strategic awareness program to spread the news across the globe, toward otherwise hard to reach communities.

Ethiopia, India, USA, Taiwan, and a hand of users from other far away places have been contacted.

Improvements[edit | edit source]

Solutions and online awareness campaign must be lead in order to reach similar places via cheaper and more continuous methods.

Mailing flyers to various local communities seems promising.
