Wikimedia Armenia was founded in May 2013 and is a chapter of Wikimedia Foundation. It has the goal of promoting free knowledge and Wikimedia projects, as well as attracting new Wikimedians in Armenia and in the region. Wikimedia Armenia closely cooperates with other NGOs and in particular with educational organisations . The goal of this cooperation is to get individuals involved and support collaboration between them in a wiki environment.
Founding members of Wikimedia Armenia organized the first international Wiki Conference in Armenia in 2012, and in 2013 the newly-founded Wikimedia Armenia organized the second one dedicated to free knowledge, open-source culture, and education.
