Description: The Wiki Mentor Africa program is designed to help new and inexperienced developers/programmers in the African communities on not just how to make edits on Wikidata but mentoring Africans on building/maintaining Wikimedia tools by pairing them with more experienced Wikimedia tool creators/contributors. These creators/contributors (referred to as mentors) will "adopt" newer developers, guiding them along the way as they learn about Wikimedia tools and its various aspects.
The aim of the project is to build a community of Wikimedia tool creators and maintainers thereby improving the technical capacity in Africa.
