- Abstract (in about 300 words)
In partnership with communities from Iraq, Nigeria, India, and Mexico, the Wikimedia Foundation has been working to increase awareness of Wikipedia through online marketing campaigns.
To support other community efforts, in January 2018, the Foundation launched an Inspire campaign which ended with 424 ideas for community projects to increase awareness of Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects. We funded 8 such projects in March 2018 across Africa and Asia.
The session will include some members of Maithili community to share the outcome of these efforts.
