Audience[edit]

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

Try to be as specific as possible about this group.
Students

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

English and Telugu

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.
Class room conferences or Whatsapp groups

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?
Since most of their subjects are related to basics of arts and sciences, they can more explore on Wikipedia and enjoy the experience.

Project idea[edit]

What language Wikipedia projects will you promote to new readers?[edit]

English

How will you communicate with new readers? Will you be communicating with them online, in-person, or both?[edit]

both in person and by Whatsapp

Describe your idea to engage new readers. How might it be implemented? What will you tell people about Wikipedia?[edit]

Think about the steps that might involved to make this idea happen, and what you might teach people about your experience or others' experiences using Wikipedia.
Go to rural schools and tell those high school students about the existence and prominence of the biggest encyclopedia, Wikipedia and asking them to use it for making their own projects in their curriculum.

How will you know if this project is successful? What are some outcomes that you can share after the project is completed?[edit]

If you’re not certain about how to respond to this question when starting your idea, you do not need to answer it right now. Campaign participants and Wikimedia Foundation staff can help you consider some options.

Do you think you can implement this idea? What support do you need?[edit]

Do you need people with specific skills or resources to complete this idea? Are there any financial needs for this project? Do you need advising from Wikimedia Foundation staff?
No financial support is needed. Wikipedians need to go to rural areas schools to interact with those students. I also need further suggestions from Wikimedia to improve the idea
