Deoband Community Wikimedia's Leadership Development and Skills Infrastructure Plan is a research project that aims to produce a leadership and skills infrastructure for the DCW's longer-run and institutional partnerships and sustainability. The study aims to further the recommendations of Leadership development and Skill development infrastructure from Movement Strategy Initiatives through a prism of institutional building and collaboration whilst at the same time prepare certain courses for the DCW. The project is supported by a Movement Strategy Implementation Grant of 4,651.50 USD.
