Series of WikiLoves Monument session[edit]

CIS-A2K conducted a series of online sessions to promote and motivate the old and new group of Wikimedians to take part in WLM2020. We mobilised groups from various places to prepare lists, get the official lists and involve them in the movement. Some success was there in spite of difficult situations, especially in Maharashtra. Pune and Aurangabad could not take up as the local mobilisers had to face COVID positive cases at home/relatives. The training sessions were conducted with 5 groups, from which 324 images were contributed. read more..
