3 What is a “Wiki”? A wiki is an online space, consisting of a collection of Web pages designed to enable anyone who accesses it to contribute or modify content. Wikis are often used to create collaborative websites and to empower communities, such as ours around the program shift, to share and build knowledge together. A well-known example of a very successful wiki is the collaborative encyclopedia “Wikipedia” (www.wikipedia.com). The goal of our P-shift Wiki is to serve as a global platform for all of you who are leading the program shift in CARE to share knowledge around the program shift The success of our wiki will depend on the contributions you make, and your commitment to visiting it to connect to and learn from others
