座右铭Promoting Wikimedia projects in Maithili

Maithili Wikimedians (Maithilī Wikimedīans; officially abbreviated as MWUG) is a group of Wikimedians who work on various wiki projects related to Maithili language. Maithili Wikipedia is a free-access, free-content Internet encyclopedia, supported and hosted by the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation. Those who can access the site can edit its articles in Maithili language. Its mission is to support Maithili Wikimedians in their Wikimedia-related endeavors and to partner with local organizations in their use of Wikimedia projects.

The Affiliate's aim is to support, promote, and educate the general public about the availability and use of free and open educational content, which includes the ability to access, develop and contribute to Wikimedia projects. The affiliate was recognized by the Wikimedia Foundation Affiliation Committee (AffComm) on 8 February 2016.
