Project scope[edit]

The organizer have not received support from anywhere. Estimated participants - around 35

Project goal[edit]

To reach out to wide cross section of society about Wikipedia and get more participation from people from all walks of life into the movement and publicize Wikipedia as a movement and bring more awareness.

Non-financial requirements[edit]

  • Permission to use logo on banners

Fit to strategy[edit]

This project will give benefit to Urdu speaking Wikipedians who will be able to write articles in Urdu. Hence it will increase the no. of articles in urdu, primarily benefiting the quality of our project.

I believe that this short celebration of wikipedia's anniversary would add a great value and motivation among wikipedians and new comers to contribute into wikipedia.

Measures of success[edit]

This event would have media coverage all over the country which includes in form of tv news headline as well as popularity of Urdu Wikipedia locally.
