  • Mittetulundusühing Wikimedia Eesti is the official local chapter of Wikimedia Foundation in Estonia.

As stated in the bylaws of Wikimedia Eesti, the main objectives of the organization are:

1) To support the collection, preservation and distribution of educational, scientific, cultural and historical data available under a free license, especially in Estonian and Võro languages and make more freely licensed information available about Estonia in other languages.

2) To support and promote projects which are managed by the Wikimedia Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization in the United States.

In our work, we focus mainly on the field of education. We also work heavily on promoting Wikimedia projects in Estonia and put special emphasis on media content (for example we organize international Wiki Science Competition).

We partner with many organizations. For instance in the years 2022–2024, we are listed as a strategic partner of the Ministry of Education and Research in Estonia.

An overview of of activity is provided here.
