As Ghanaians approach the December Elections, 2020, it is important for the country and its citizens to strive to maintain the peace it has fought for and which many on the international stage know it for.
Open Foundation West Africa (OFWA) a non-profit organization based in in Ghana, has launched a pilot campaign to encourage peace in Ghana before, during and after the 2020 elections.
The team at OFWA aside the peace campaign, is also embarking on a project to update the Wikipedia pages of persons, groups, topics, events and places that matter to the polls in real-time.
The team will help curate such information as is important to the polls on Wikipedia and invites members of the general public to use the hashtag #TheGhanaPolls2020 when sharing information on social media to help with easy access.
TheGhanaPolls2020, is a campaign targeted at educating the Ghanaian people about the need to exercise their constitutional right.
More importantly, it is aimed at encouraging peaceful elections for the 2020 electioneering process.
Ultimately, it is a campaign to increase Ghana’s visibility on Wikipedia and the web at large by curating and creating content about Ghana’s election process and the key actors involved.
