Project Goal[edit]

Briefly explain what are you trying to accomplish with this project, or what do you expect will change as a result of this grant. Example goals include, "recruit new editors", "add high quality content", or "train existing editors on a specific skill".

Will be training existing editors at specific technical skills like template creation and Wikidata.

Project Plan[edit]


Tell us how you'll carry out your project. What will you and other organizers spend your time doing?

We will organise a program where specific editors who knows basic Wikipedia will learn more advance techniques from experts in the field. We want to concentrate more on template creation and Wikidata.

How will you let others in your community know about your project (please provide links to where relevant communities have been notified of your proposal, and to any other relevant community discussions)? Why are you targeting a specific audience?

Will be posting the link on village pump and will also notify the community on mailing list and other social network.

Targeting the Hindi wikimedians because there is a shortage of people who knows how to create template, etc.

What will you have done at the end of your project? How will you follow-up with people that are involved with your project?

We will try to create template by ourselves. Mostly now all templates are copying from English Wikipedia. We will also improve Hindi Wikipedia content on Wikidata.


How will you know if the project is successful and you've met your goals? Please include the following targets and feel free to add more specific to your project:

  1. Number of total participants - 10-15
  2. Number of articles created or improved (if applicable) - Template created by all attended participants.
  3. Number of photos uploaded to Wikimedia Commons (if applicable)
  4. Number of photos used on Wikimedia projects (if applicable)
