Africa in Wikipedia

#Making Africa Challenge: Improving the presence of Cabo Verde in Wikipedia

Africa is a continent that is under-represented on Wikpedia in Catalan. We would like to propose a challenge to you: during a one month period, to improve or create new contents in Catalan on Cabo Verde, one of the African countries with the least articles on the Catalan version of Wikipedia: Viquipèdia. What are you waiting for Wikipedians, will you help us out?
