Wikimedians of Nepal


Shared Experience[edit]

It was my very first Wikimania I'd ever attended. In my experience, it is an opportunity to deliver our voice with the global community, and even more than that, I found Wikimania as a place of taking over responsibility to forward Wikimedia revolution on the path of progress. It is not only an opportunity and responsibility, Wikimania has become a special platform for me to share and exchange knowledge with the Wikimedians from around the world.
I've shared my experience in Nepali Wiki Community (in Nepali Language) and in my Blogs (Blog 1 and Blog 2) (in Englesh Language)

  • After attending session about Wikidata by Assaf I got good knowledge of it, which will be helpful for Wikidata Datathon Program in Nepal in the future.
