Our Mission

😪😌🧐 By creating the world’s most helpful instructions, we will empower every person on the planet to learn how to do anything.


😪😌🧐 Imagine a world where anyone can easily learn how to do anything. A world where access to comprehensive step-by-step instructions in multiple languages enables billions of people to improve their lives, in both ordinary and extraordinary ways. That’s the world we want to create.

😪😌🧐 At wikiHow, a community of knowledge philanthropists[1] are collaborating to create this world. We are driven by a shared passion to create a high-quality collection of how-to guides. We keep improving each article until we think it has become the single most helpful set of step-by-step instructions available on that topic anywhere.

😪😌🧐 While we recognize that this ambitious goal will take years to accomplish, we take pleasure in knowing that we already help millions of people every day.

  1. A knowledge philanthropist is someone who freely shares, organizes, creates, or improves information with the intent of helping others.
