Project Goal[edit]

  1. Add or improve content in Telugu wikipedia
  2. Recruit new editors into Wikimedia projects

Project Plan[edit]


Tell us how you'll carry out your project. Be sure to answer the following questions:
1. What content gaps will you be filling with the equipment?

Since the school doesn’t have Computer. I’ll buy 2-3 PCs with the grant and will make students edit in them. I’ve already introduced wikipedia to some of the students.

2. What activities will you organize in the next 6 months to create content and use it on Wikimedia projects?

I’ll make them translate many articles from English to Telugu.

3. How will the equipment be shared/tracked/cared for by members of your community?

Since it is a school, the equipment is cared by the staff. Students may share the computer one by one.

4. How long will the equipment be used, and by whom?

The PC will be used for atleast 3 years by students and staff for editing Wikipedia

5. Is there anything else you want to tell us about this project?

Since it is a school and my mother works there. I can ensure that you can get max possible translations and articles from them, i.e., atleast 10-20 article creations and 100-200 edits per month.
