Why donate to the Wikimedia Foundation?

We all have causes we deeply care about. I am obviously very supportive of anyone who gives time, money and/or energy to a cause they believe in.

Personally, I have always been a huge admirer of Wikipedia because I believe education is the basis of any improvement in the world, and online education in particular because it can impact so many people.

We are still very far from all having equal opportunities, but thanks to Wikipedia, any child in the world with an internet access can access knowledge. It paved the way for more sophisticated online courses.

Today, an underprivileged child from a developing country who never went to school can learn anything. They could literally learn to build a machine learning algorithm provided they simply have an internet access. The world is moving fast and online education challenges the status quo an incredibly high pace.

Wikipedia has been a huge inspiration for this project and I find it important to donate to them to support what they do.

Thank you for the support,
Alex.
