Project idea


What is the problem you're trying to solve?


The WOSM's vision is to become as the organization with more educated ones by 2023. 95% of scouts does not know about Wikimedia projects. Therefore, I think Wikimedia can help to motivate this vision.

What is your solution?


Introduce the international badge for every scout with the permission of WOSM and we will teach every scout about Wikimedia and it's projects specially Wikipedia in every language. This will pave way for the development of every Wikimedia projects as well as develop the WOSM organization. But first we do this project as a try-out in minimum one country.

Who will you be doing outreach with?
