Dear Wikimedia Tn members,
2018 has been an accomplishing year for our group by organising the WikiIndaba Conference in Tunis which was a great success despite the limited human ressources of our group. Thank you all for making this conference happening in our country.
Following WikiIndaba, a Wiki Indaba Steering Committee (WISCom) has been set in place and two of our members : Zeineb and Houssem are now members of it. Well done Zeineb and Houssem and good luck for the next WikiIndaba !
During 2018 our valuable members did a lot actions and organised many events to promote Wikimedia projects and the Open Knowledge in Tunisia. Some of these event have been gratefully reported her by Sami (Kudos Sami !).
Our members had the opportunity to represent our country in several Wikimedia conferences: Wikimedia Conference in Berlin, Wikimania in Cape Town and recently in WikiConvention Grenoble. Thank you all for being the ambassadors of Tunisia !
