Wikipedia Library[edit]

as a result of work with the Wikipedia Library team and the local resources, we were about to offer dozens of accounts to paid resources. These accounts were used to make Wikipedia a richer environment for its users and readers. A few users also received a hard copy of the books they needed for their articles.

Education program[edit]

Like many past years, we had an Education program running multiple universities and educational institutes as a result of these efforts many students and their teachers used Wikipedia as a supplementary tool in their classes.
