|Team updates |
Our Programme Manager Dr. U.B. Pavanaja has left the team recently, and our Programme Officer Subhashish Panigrahi is leaving soon to continue with their other personal/professional commitments. We thank both of them for their association and support both to the team and to the community. We wish them success in their forthcoming endeavours, and hope that they will keep contributing to the Wikimedia movement in their volunteer capacity.
