I have been a volunteer with Wikimedia since 2014 on Wiki Africa's Kumusha Takes Wiki project, supporting the Wikipedian in Residence to activate Wikipedia and OpenStreetMap Communities in Uganda. I have held other short term volunteer roles as team lead and project Manager on the annual one-month wiki Loves Africa contests in 2015 and 2016. Am one of the co-founders of the Wikimedia Community Usergroup in Uganda, which was officially recognised by AffCom in 2018
I collaborate with other Wikimedians in Uganda (Co-founders of the Usergroup), to plan for activities and events that will sustain and make our Usergroup relevant in the free knowledge ecosystem, and Wikimedia world. One of my passions, and drivers in my work are the principles of openness and transparency, which are some of the values within the Wikimedia Movement.
"Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge".
