Hello Wikipedians:

There is a class of impoverished high schoolers in South Africa who started
a campaign on Facebook for free access to Wikipedia on their cellphones so
that they can do their homework. I just shot a film about the class
(currently editing) and published a blog post on the WMF blog about it:


I'm looking for Wikipedians who might want to be involved with this
campaign. Please contact me off list.

Thank you!
