As I'm new to the list, I'll do a short presentation. I'm Paulo, from
Wikimedia Portugal, and I live in Madeira Island <http://Madeira>, a
Portuguese island which geographically is part of the African continental
During last Art+Feminism events here at Funchal, we've started a
collaboration with a Portuguese feminine association, Associação Presença
Feminina <http://apfeminina.wixsite.com/inicio>, which has a number of
partnerships, collaborations and initiatives in Africa, and a very close
contact with the African communities living in Madeira.
We are planning a number of joint initiatives, including one to celebrate
the coming Day of Africa, next 25 May, with an edit-a-thon with a focus in
Africa, mainly Guine-Bissau, and aiming at the participation of the African
communities living here at Madeira.
Are there other similar initiatives going on in the Wikimedia Movement, in
Africa and other parts of the world, celebrating the Day of Africa? If so,
we would be very glad to join you.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Paulo Santos Perneta
