Wikimedians of Santali Language User Group/Annual Report 2020-2021
Report of activities: 2020-2021
The Wikimedians of Santali Language User Group was approved on 21 September 2019 to contribute to the development of Santali Wikipedia and the Santali language. The group currently has a total of 23 members from India, Bangladesh and Nepal. The group's work has come to a standstill since the Corona epidemic in 2020. In particular, all types of offline activities are closed. It also has a negative impact on our online activities. One thing we are aware of is that although such groups are created to support the Wikimedia Movement, it is difficult to manage the group properly due to lack of proper group management guidance and funding from the movement's management team. But even then the members of this group are trying to work. Although online or offline events are not being managed much, the number of articles on Santali Wikipedia is increasing due to the relentless work of the Santali wikimedians. Currently, Santali Wikipedia has more than 7,000 articles. Hopefully, we will be able to move forward by overcoming various obstacles in future.
