I am just wondering is this the correct title for the page? If not, please move the page to its correct title! Thanks --Xaiver0510 (talk) 06:34, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

That's what at least one source calls the concept. czar 23:58, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

Updating Education in Tanzania page![edit]

Hi! I am a current student at Rice University enrolled in a class called Poverty, Justice, & Human Capabilities. One of our semester's projects is to create or edit a Wikipedia article regarding anything that we are passionate about and that is relevant. I think that this page is really great in addressing different levels and types of education in Tanzania, as well as some brief information about curriculum, exams, etc. I would like to add a page about special needs education in Tanzania because while they have made significant progress over the last few decades, there is still an interesting stigma centered around disability, especially in "developing" countries. I'm very interested in global education as well as pediatric health impairments. I would most likely focus on speech deficits (I myself was born with an internal cleft palate, so I’m fascinated by and passionate about this), cognitive disorders, and physical challenges. I think this page has a lot of great content, but I'd love to add and would also love your feedback and questions if any. If you're interested in more detail on my plans, please check out my sandbox! It has more sources and a more detailed outline of my plans: User:Spaul57/sandbox Sachi Paul (talk) 02:45, 26 September 2018 (UTC)

Rwandan Civil War[edit]

Just in case anyone here is interested, I've put the above article up for FAC today, in the hope of getting some feedback on it. If people here have the time and inclination, please could you have a look over it? Thanks  — Amakuru (talk) 12:15, 2 October 2018 (UTC)

Hello WikiProject Africa,

Its a great effort to have African Coverage on line, but as a researcher and data analyst i look out for the facts especially on location. i would think for a place with its border line as defining factors, the data collector should looked for informed people in the area. Having grown up in that place i feel no justice was done to bring out who we are, how we live n then the structures of that place notably Upland Club House which has been in existence since 1995 not being part of the places of Interest with a consideration for new developments.

For instance its Zonal demarcations and the relevant features in it, the land tenure system. This place has a huge history, there are educated people above 80 years that served in the post independence government of Uganda such as Ssalongo Lwanga who participated in drawing the zonal boundaries during the early times. Make it possible to consult. also as we publish we should have the facts. On Wikis around Europe i always see in the footer section a mention of the kind "prominent people", "influential figures". We cannot have passed on a full residential area given its location near Mulago hospital with out key individuals being mentioned. am very certain there is a very instrumental Doctor who has lived here. Consult and we update this wiki.

Featured quality source review RFC[edit]

Editors in this WikiProject may be interested in the featured quality source review RFC that has been ongoing. It would change the featured article candidate process (FAC) so that source reviews would need to occur prior to any other reviews for FAC. Your comments are appreciated. --IznoRepeat (talk) 21:48, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
