Wikimedians of Korea logo.pdf

Wikimedians of Korea (한국 위키미디어 협회) is a non-profit organization and a Wikimedia user group[1] in Republic of Korea for making diffusion of free knowledge. In 2012, we started a preparatory committee, and in 2014, we held the founding meeting. We aim to make a local chapter of WMF in Republic of Korea.

All Wikimedia projects are inner-connected, and anyone can use and participate in it. The biggest project among these projects is Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia, which is a very popular site. Anyone can approach to knowledge freely using Wikipedia, and Wikipedia has over 16 million articles in 260 languages. Wikipedia and sisterhood projects are maintained by voluntary participations and donations, without ads.

Our mission is to support and promote Wikimedia projects hosted by Wikimedia Foundation Inc. We will support and promote the collection and development of educational content under free license and in public domain. To achieve our mission, we will provide infrastructures and organizational system in coorperation with the foundation and individual volunteers, and we will contribute to making and keeping useful information from the Wikimedia projects available on the Internet free of charge, in perpetuity.
