Goals[edit]

Did you meet your goals? Are you happy with how the project went?
Yes, we've managed to achieve our priority goals. Maatribhaasha Sampadanthan (Mother Language Edit-a-thon) depends on creating articles about languages, linguistic and cultural diversity on Maithili and Nepali Wikipedia as well as to promote multilingualism. Considering our both the community (Maithili and Nepali Wikipedia) this event was a great success for us. We are expecting more editors to engage on this Edit-a-thon but due to the short duration of time we've only managed to reach our goals.
