Wikimedia Community User Group Sri Lanka (officially abbreviated as UG-LK) is a volunteer-run non-profit community with an aim of unifying, empowering, and growing the Wikimedian community in Sri Lanka. The initial objectives of this community include increasing awareness of Wikimedia and its projects, introducing more people to the editing environment, and scaling-up the coverage on Sri Lankan history, geography, and other key topics. Future plans include holding edit-a-thons and collaborating with the local government to digitize and upload historic documents, photographs, and other information.
