مقامی ابواب[edit]

World map showing countries that have local chapters in blue.

وکی میڈیا کے منصوبے گنجائش کے لحاظ سے بین الاقوامی ہیں اور وکی میڈیا کی تحریک پوری دنیا پر ایک گہرا اثر ڈال رہی ہے۔ اس جدوجہد کو ایک تحریک کی شکل میں جاری رکھنے کے لئے، وکی میڈیا ایک مشترکہ تحریکوں کا بین الاقوامی جالہ کار بنا رہی ہے، جن کی مختلف ممالک میں موجودہ تعداد 38 ہے۔

مقامی ابواب یا تحاریک خودمختار حیثیت کی حامل ہوتی ہیں، جن کا مقصد خطے کی جغرافیائی خصوصیات کے مطابق وکی میڈیا کے اہداف کا حصول ہوتا ہے۔ یہ وکی میڈیا فاؤنڈیشن، وکی میڈیا کی آبادکاری اور وکی میڈیا کے منصوبے کی مختلف طریقوں سے مددگار ہوتی ہیں۔ عطیات کی وصولی، مقامی سطح پر مختلف قسم کے پروگرامز اور منصوبوں کے ذریعے وکی میڈیا کے لفظ اور مفت ثقافت دنیا میں پھیلا رہی ہیں۔ اس کے علاوہ یہ رضاکاروں کی ایک فوج بھی مہیا کرتی ہیں اور مشترکہ حصہ داروں اور معاونین کی مدد سے علاقائی ضروریات کو پورا کرتی ہیں۔

If you have questions about local chapters or want to start one in your country, please don't hesitate to contact the Chapters committee.

Please note that the local chapters are independent associations with no legal control of or responsibility for the websites of the Wikimedia Foundation and vice versa.

Chapters participating in the 2008/2009 Annual Campaign[edit]

The following chapters have agreed to participate in the 2008/2009 Annual Campaign. This means that the chapters will invest 50% of the revenue raised during the course of the fundraiser in activities agreed upon with the Wikimedia Foundation, and 50% in local program activities. So, for example, if a chapter raises USD 50,000, it could spend USD 25,000 on servers for our European data-center, and USD 25,000 on local activities such as outreach events, contests, content partnerships, etc.

Chapters participating in the campaign have also agreed to submit weekly activity reports to the Wikimedia Foundation, and to follow generally established accounting practices.
