Option 3: New Creation: What was one useful outcome that was created at the event for the Wikimedia movement?
Add a link to something new that was created as a result of your participation in this event (for example, you might link to a new tool that you and your co-participants worked on at the Hackathon, or to pages created in a workshop you participated in).

With the help and guidance of fellow wikimedians, we discussed the idea of planning Wiki Women Camp 2020 which was appreciated by one and all. After that, some of us started the initial process of planning. The WikiWomenCamp 2020 page will carry all the information about the project.

Started the collaboration of Indian and Armenia School clubs with Tamara Karvajar. The collaboration activities will start in October 2019.


  • Met a lot of wikimedians with whom I had online interactions and planned future collaborations- Armineaghayan, Tamara Karvajar and Irina.
  • Discussed the WikiWomenCamp 2020 with women wikimedians during women Lunch.
