Abstract (in about 300 words)

Santali Wikipedia is very new in Wikipedia world. Though the Santali language speakers are fewer in Nepal than the Indian and Bangladesh but we few people were engaged with the beginning of the Santali Wikipedia. Two different workshops were held at Bangladesh and India already regarding the content development and basic things of Santali Wikipedia. Now many Santals of Nepal are expressing their interest through social media that they also want to contribute to enrich the Wikipedia but they do not know how to contribute effectively in Santali Wikipedia. So our main objective will be to let people know how to contribute in Santali wikipedia and other basic things about Wikipedia. We are also looking for other Wikipedian experiences regarding the development of Wikipedia during the camp.
