Wikipedia is entering 2007 as one of the 10 most visited websites in the world. That's a great testament to our success.

However, with this success comes a new set of challenges and responsibilities. As we plan for the future of Wikipedia and all of the Wikimedia projects, our two most important goals now are the reliability of our content and the long-term sustainability of every project in which we are involved.

To meet these goals we have a lot of work to do, so I am asking for your help. In the coming year, the Wikimedia Foundation anticipates dramatically increasing spending to keep up with server and traffic capacity demands, add new staff on the organizational level, improve our software and develop methods to better ensure high quality content, all while making progress toward our goal of giving free knowledge to everyone.

Our visitors and editors have been generous in the past and contributions have kept us going during our first three years. Our recent audit shows how responsible we have been with the many donations we have received. As we need more funds to keep the projects going and growing, please consider making a gift to the Wikimedia Foundation. You will be making an investment in Wikipedia and all of our associated projects, helping to ensure these resources remain accessible and meaningful as our universe of users grows.

Chair of the Wikimedia Foundation - December 2006

Ngày 22 tháng 10, 2007 - Một nỗ lực có cơ sở rất khiêm tốn đã bắt đầu cách đây 6 năm, Wikimedia đã phát triển thành một nguồn lực toàn cầu chưa từng có, cái mà đã thay đổi cách thức chúng ta chia ssẻ tri thức cho nhau. CỔng thông tin này đã thu hút hàng triệu lượt viếng thăm của mọi đối tượng trên thế giới và hiện đã được lưu hành ba91ng 250 ngôn ngữ khác nhau.

Like most of the projects managed by the Wikimedia Foundation, the nonprofit behind the educational website, Wikipedia empowers world citizens with the ability to share in the sum of all human knowledge, while at the same time ensuring that diverse voices are represented equally. Needless to say, we are all quite proud of the positive influence Wikipedia and our other projects have had in the global community.

The global impact of Wikipedia, however, has opened the door to a growing set of responsibilities and challenges for the Wikimedia Foundation. In light of our international success, the Foundation has begun focusing its energy on those parts of the world that need our help the most - underrepresented communities with limited access to educational resources. Considering that nearly two billion children in the developing world receive little to no education, we consider this very important work.

So far, given our limited resources, the Wikimedia Foundation has made great progress in this area. Through diverse partnerships, we have been able to bring Wikipedia to remote corners of the world, and instigate the creation of Wikipedias in languages like Yoruba and Swahili. Most importantly, however, this past year has been intrinsic in planting the seeds for future educational endeavors.

Despite all these accomplishments, we need to do more!

The Wikimedia Foundation needs your support to continue facilitating the exchange of knowledge worldwide.

In the coming weeks, we will be conducting our annual fundraiser. We hope that you can express your support through a donation - no matter how big or small it may be - and thus empower us to fulfill our mission of providing every single world citizen with free access to the sum of all human knowledge.
