Very good project. Teachers will realize how useful Wikipedia can be in their profession. Ringer (talk) 13:20, 5 November 2020 (UTC)

  • Apart from the promotion of Bikol history and culture, the project will engage the Academe sector with different Wikimedia projects (in this case are the Bikol Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons). As it raises the awareness and usage of Bikol Wikipedia to teachers and students within the Bicol Region and the Philippines, I therefore give my Strong Support.
