Wikimedia is a global movement whose mission is to bring free educational content to the world. Through various projects, chapters, and the support structure of the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation, Wikimedia strives to bring about a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge. Projects include, amongst others, Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Wikiquote and Wikisourse.

WikimediaZA, one of the chapters of Wikimedia, is attempting to remedy the situation that so few information about South Africa exist on Wikimedia. Visit their website if you are keen to submit or edit any articles relating to South Africa.

During September WikimediZA ran the 'Wiki Loves Monuments' photographic competition designed to increase the content of historical heritage sites in South Africa on Wikipedia. The competition invited members of the public to submit photographs of monuments throughout the month of September. These included photographs of buildings, sites of struggle and memory, graves, monuments and archaeological sites.
