Betreff: African-Wikimedians Digest, #WikiGap

On March 8 was International Women`s Day and Swedish embassies worldwide
had organized editathon events for their initiative "#WikiGap", aimed at
adding women related content to wikipedia.
I would like to hear
1) which wikimedia groups around Africa were involved in these events and
2) what was the outcome, especially
3) how much of the uploaded content did survive.
I had written already back in February but then my contribution to this
almanach ws not forwarded (overlooked? did I write too critical??). I
was sceptical about the project when I heard from Tanzania how it had
been started and now see that indeed much content (about 60-70%) which
was uploaded in Dar es Salaam ran immediately into the "speedy delete"
situation and was erased. Obviously this is a pity and a disappointment
for the new contributors who joined that event.
So I would be happy to hear where else in Africa something took place
connected to our groups.
