The Wikimedia Foundation’s free online encyclopedia, which is maintained by volunteers from all over the world, has approved Gurene as the fourth Ghanaian language.
The Upper East Region of Ghana and southern Burkina Faso, where the language is spoken, are also known as Farefare and Ninkare.
The language was approved on Friday, 27th January 2023 during its incubation stage in the Wikimedia Incubator. The transition was completed on Monday, 27th February 2023.

Because of this, users can read Wikipedia in the Gurene language and access materials pertaining solely to the Gurene people, culture, and history.
