Wikipedia for prisoners – an unexpected partnership between a swiss
prison and Wikimedia CH

Following an initiative from Emmanuel Engelhart, with the support of
Wikimedia CH CAO, Chantal Ebongué, since March 2013, prisoners who
request can have an access to Wikipedia offline (Kiwix project). The
idea is to stimulate or to support the interest for education of
prisoners who were, for a large majority, condemned to long-time

After three months of pilot phasis, the project is successful : Among
the 36 prisoners of the Bellevue’s prison in Gorgier, 18 possess or
rent a computer. All of them requested the upload of Wikipedia offline
on their PC. For security reasons, swiss prisoners have a very
restricted access to internet.

More informations in the press releases (ENG, DE, FR, IT) that was
sent today to the swiss media
