Support type[edit]

Why do you need this support (Internet and/or Chromebook)

  • I am a teacher coming from Sagara region in Karnataka and in my free time I contribute to Kannada Wikipedia. I contributed to Kannada Wikipedia during the Project Tiger editathon last year and won prize as well. All that contribution I did from from my mobile phone. Because I edit from phone it is difficult to keep contributing always. When editing mobile also hangs sometime because of storage problem. Now lack of resource is stopping my contribution and interest. If I get a support I feel in all the available time I can contribute to Wikipedia. Last time I applied for support in Kannada language. With all support from my community members this time I am applying for this support English.

Do you have a working laptop? No. I do not have any working laptop.

Had you received the support in the first iteration of Project Tiger? No.

Future activities[edit]

How will you use this in the next six months? I want to participate in Project Tiger editathon and Karnataka Rajyotsava editathon. If I get a laptop that will boost my editing. I want to contribute to Kannada Wikipedia and want to learn and contribute to Wikidata. With other Kannada Wikipedians I want to help in conducting Wikipedia workshops in Sagara.

Community discussion and endorsements[edit]

Please keep the discussion friendly, and note number of endorsement may not be the only way to assess an application's merit

  1. Strong support Strong support I met Manjapa sir when I went to Sagara. I regret that I could not endorse his application in last year Project Tiger. Even with lack of support his contribution for Roject Tiger Contest is tremendous. If he receive support this will help Kannada Wikipedia community to increase activity in Sagara region. Also will help in building community leaders in Sagara. --Gopala Krishna A (talk) 17:25, 14 September 2019 (UTC)[reply]

He is keenly interested in contributing to Kannada Wikipedia. But unfortunately, he does not have the necessary infrastructure to contribute regularly.
