Wiki Women for Women Wellbeing

Project Goal

As we have always seen in our personal lives that women have the tendency of ignoring their needs and health concerns and have always been a nurturer in the family, this time we've thought of an initiative for showing our acknowledgment and concern towards all such amazing women in our lives by doing something for them.

The event was focused on women health concerns and creating content related to the same in the month of October and November, 2018. Along with this, in this project an attempt has been made to train some interested women wikimedians of different communities for outreach activities by guiding them and making them organize the event in their respective communities. The basic training has been given about planning, proposing, performing and reporting. Which help in exploring and promoting women leadership in different languages, thus helping in bridging the gender gap along with the usual accomplishment of content creation.
