Wikimedia CH was very busy in the first half of 2021, with activities focusing on three main events:
- Wikipedia’s 20th anniversary
- 50 years of women’s suffrage in Switzerland
- Our new five-year strategy
Programmatically, we moved forward with our plan despite the uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic. We even hosted the year’s first in-person event to celebrate 20 years of Wikipedia and the community that makes our work possible.
To learn more about our activities, budget, and metrics in the first half of the year, please see the attached PDF.

Resources to plan for measurement
- Global metrics are an important starting point for grantees when it comes to measuring programmatic impact (Learning Patterns and Tutorial) but don’t stop there.
- Logic Models provide a framework for mapping your pathway to impact through the cause and effect chain from inputs to outputs to outcomes. Develop a logic model to map out your theory of change and determine the metrics and measures for your programs.
- Importantly, both qualitative and quantitative measures are important so consider both as you determine measures for your evaluation and be sure to ask the right questions to be sure to capture your program stories.
