People generally want to know more if any information is available handy to them. These people doesen't have android phones and they still rely on cheap java phones so if wikipedia will be available on those phones they can really search and get information about a alot of things this will really improve the knowledge of any country.

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

Hindi and its dialects, and Urdu

Since I already have my NGO working for deprived people in India It will be a much easy for e along with my team to communicate with people in person.

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.
First of all our team which works in most part of india will share the information of wikipedia through meetings and gatherings to every people in villages and towns. then we will make them understand that how one can take the benefit of wikipedia to know most of the things let it be history or general science.People are really curious to know new things so soon they will and want to search things in wikipedia. Teachers should be introduced to wikipedia, so they encourage students to use it

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.
If my solution works then I will automatically get to know from the media and also from the people themselves will be much happier to share the knowledge with each other.

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?
Yes I can implemet this idea on my own i will just need some financial resourse and some staff members to write and convert article in different languages and to communicate with our regional government regarding the same.
