Translate this post

The Wikimedia Foundation congratulates the newest official Wikimedia chapter: Wikimedia India! The Chapters Committee has unanimously approved the formation of WMIN, an important step towards building a stronger community of volunteers throughout the country. We’re extremely excited to see their good work recognized by this milestone achievement.
Wikimedia’s 29 local chapters form a vital network of organizations that share a common mission: a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge . The Foundation has high hopes for Wikimedia India, and we look forward to working closely with the new chapter as the Foundation begins implementing a strategic, five-year plan to help grow readers and editors throughout the Global South, starting in India.
The formation of this chapter is a critical step in the Wikimedia movement– we offer our sincere congratulations to WMIN!
