Support details


Support type


What type of support you need

  • Chromebook
  • Internet



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

  • My contribution to wiki is done on old desk top. Now for office work I need to travel frequently, due to this my contribution is limited during travel. I try using mobile during travel but due to small screen It is difficult to work.
  • Further, When i go for attending training session i have to either use mobile or borrow laptop from organizers.
  • I plan to carry out wiki awareness through meeting of small group of interested people. In the absence of Laptop, I am unable to carry out such task. with internet and Lapptop that will be easier.
  • As my home is on Road side, Not able to record the audio book due to road side noice. With Laptop i can take it to some peacefull place and audio record the wikisource book.

Future activities


How will you use this in the next six months? Will create new articles, proof read books, edit rectify articles.

  • My Main Focus is on Gujarati Wikisource. I will continue using it for proofreading and carry that work forward.
  • I will use it for Project Tiger 2
  • I plan to create and expand some articles in English Wikipedia.
  • I plan to carry out outreach program to interested people in small group of one or two at some public place, library etc.
  • Do some recording of Wikisource book to make Audio Book.

  21. Strong support Strong support - Sushant is one of the foundation stone which has supported the tremendous growth of Gujarati Wikisource. He has used his own resources for copying the books from the libraries and provided the backbone to other contributors. It is true that he now travels a lot for his work. Whenever he is on the move, his active contribution drops drastically. This severely affects the rate of growth of the work on Gujarati Wikisource projects. Sushant is also a very active champion for spreading the work of Gujarati Wikisource to different cities of Gujarat. In all these places, he has to carry his own laptop to conduct the awareness workshops. So his needs for a laptop and continuing internet connectivity is quite justified. If he is empowered with more resources, he will be able to conceive and execute more projects that will spread the work of Wikipedia as well as create a wider base of active participants for Gujarati Wikisource. --Amvaishnav (talk) 16:18, 14 September 2019 (UTC)[reply]
