Tulu Wikipedia <https://tcy.wikipedia.org/> has finally gone live after being in the
Incubator for nine long years. Tulu is spoken by nearly 2 million speakers in the
Mangaluru, Udupi and other South West regions of the Indian state of Karnataka and in some
places in the state of Kerala. 198 editors have contributed so far to make this happen.
The project has started seeing more activity since 2014 when the first ever community
meetup was organised in April , 2014. St. Aloysius College and St. Agnes College, two
educational institutions in Mangaluru, India have done a commendable job in
institutionalizing education programs and several outreach programs for their students.
CIS-A2K congratulates everyone who have helped grow this project, the language committee
and other friends in the global communities who have supported and guided in working
towards the approval of the project. We will continue to support the community to the best
of our abilities and introduce them to other friends in the movement so that they can
learn the best practices for community building, designing and running outreach and
education programs and several other Wikimedia activities.
