Who are the people you want to introduce Wikipedia to?[edit]

Try to be as specific as possible about this group.

In what languages do they search for information, online or otherwise?[edit]

english , hindi

In what ways does this group communicate with each other?[edit]

This can include services and apps in social media, mailing lists, physical spaces like conferences or lectures, or at specific institutions like at a library.
facebook, whats app, instagram

What are some reasons this group would use Wikipedia? How would they benefit from it, or what would they find useful?[edit]

Think about what they would be interested in reading and learning about; does Wikipedia provide better access to information this group cares about?
Few of them are already using and find related information for their projects. Easy source of information in hand, when they have 24 access to mobile phones. Let the search be meaningful. I teach them art, so they can learn about the lives of the artist, a specific art work, and concepts relating to history, geography, maps, great personalities and this can help them gather all th information that the text book does not provide.
