OFWA launches Peace campaign ahead of Election 2020

Open Foundation West Africa (OFWA) has launched a pilot campaign to encourage peace in Ghana before, during, and after the 2020 elections.

As Ghana approaches the historic crossroads of the polls, it is important for the peace we enjoy as Ghanaians to be maintained to prevent avoidable losses.

The team at OFWA aside from 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.
