- In 2015, Wikimedia Hong Kong finished the very first Wikimedia Education Program. In March 2015, the pilot program began with an introductory talk to students in the School of Humanities at Hang Seng Management College. Approximately 25 students attended. After the talk, students knew more about what Wikipedia is and how the education program would work. 16 students expressed interest in joining the program. The pilot began in March 2015. The students are required to edit articles related to literature and linguistics on English Wikipedia. Their target is to work on the articles during the summer months after the class has ended and to complete their article by August 2015. At the end of the Program, we collected 17 entries from the students, mainly related to linguistics. All the entries are informative and we are so happy to have the students participating in the program. Wikimedia Hong Kong will continue the Wikipedia Education Program in the January 2016.
- Since 2014, Wikimedia Hong Kong has been working on the financial report of Wikimania 2013 and still Wikimedia Hong Kong is working on it. As a registered NGO in Hong Kong, the financial report has to be approved by a licensed accountant before releasing to the public. It is still in progress. Wikimedia Hong Kong would love to inform the public once the report is ready.
