Project Plan[edit]


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

We will organize 4 Workshops in 4 prime educational institutions at college/university level. The Workshops will focus on establishing Wikimedia as a reliable and inclusive source of information and research among academicians. We Will encourage students and faculties to use Wikipedia and its sister projects in their daily academic affairs. We will provide them training to become quality contributor. We will also run contest for these new users just after awareness and training workshop to insure their active participation at initial level. We, as a part of sysops team and Hindi Wikimedians User Group, believe that these workshops and contest will be a great pull factor to meet our desired goals.

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?

We have a fair practice to notify all important information on village pump of all Hindi Wikimedia projects. Besides this, we have many contact groups on different social platforms like Facebook, Whats-app, Hangout, Telegram etc. We will also invite Hindi Wiki conference 2019 participants to join the contest by posting invitations on their user talk pages. We will send emails about the contest to our mailing list which include anyone who has attended an event in the past. We will also use site-notice and geolocated banners to advertise the contest to local Wikimedia users.

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

At the end of This project We will have done-
  1. Aware students and faculties of various colleges about Hindi Wikipedia and it’s sister projects.
  2. recruit and trained new users and editors on various Hindi wiki projects.
  3. enhance various wiki projects by adding quality content.

We will give special attention to follow-up, that’s why we've added a contest to proposed Workshops. Trained students and faculties will be added in a relevant social media platform and motivated regularly to use and enhance Wikimedia. It will increase/improve readership of various projects itself.
