To mark and celebrate Human Rights Day, do join us and United Nations Human Rights to make knowledge about human rights available to all!
At Wikimedia, we know that free access to knowledge is a fundamental human right. To build on this commitment, we’ve launched a new global campaign with UN Human Rights to improve and add datas about human rights on Wikipedia, Wikidata, Wiki Commons.
Now from today and entire January, we need your help to set human rights knowledge free! Here’s how to get involved and contribute #WikiForHumanRights:
Note: The above linked page few sections are under construction, do bear with me and feel free to add information.
11 December 2019 (i.e, yesterday) marks the successful completion of the
second month of Project Tiger 2.0 article writing contest. We have a few
points to tell to all the participants.
The objective of Project Tiger is to create good quality articles in Indian
languages. There are more than 20 Indian language Wikipedia communities and
Project Tiger encourages them to create articles on different important
topics in their languages. The topics are suggested by the Project Tiger
team and also prepared by communities.
It must be noted that the total number of articles is never a goal of
Project Tiger. Although we celebrate the number & statistics, what we truly
believe is that the quality of the articles is more valuable than the
statistics. This year, we have seen enthusiastic participation from
communities and we thank them for their involvement. *We especially thank
the Wikipedians who are creating articles on diverse and possibly difficult
topics, adding references and not violating the neutral point of view.*
Few Wikipedians have raised concerns about creating template like articles.
We want to ensure that friendly competition is our objective and we seek
your comments and suggestions.
Project Tiger is an ongoing project and decisions and changes are made
based on experience and community feedback. We once again thank the
community and solicit your feedback to improve the process.
For any queries, please contact Nitesh Gill(gillteshu(a)gmail.com) or
*Project Tiger team*
Hello all, and apologies for crossposting!
I hope you are doing well!
As you may have noticed when we announced the partnership in August :
the Wikimedia Foundation is working with the UN Human Rights to help expand
the availability of knowledge about human rights online.
As one of our first collaborations, we are going to be running a campaign
from November 15 - January 30 to add and improve knowledge about human
rights on Wikipedia and the Wikimedia projects. The initial focus of the
campaign will be on improving articles about topics related to the UN
Declaration of Human Rights and youth standing up for human rights. More
information about the campaign is also available here:
We would like to invite you to get involved in the campaign in one of

human rights that don’t have articles on Wikipedia or could use further
improvement. We would like to represent many different languages and
geographies in the campaign. To propose topics for the list, see

We hope all are well! There is a question that has been raised by the
communities regarding Wikipedia Asian Month articles and WAM collaboration
with Project Tiger 2.0.
We want to clear the confusion regarding this. GLOW 2019 or Project Tiger
2.0 is an Indic local language contest but creating or expanding content
need not be related to India or local topics necessarily. Because in
Project Tiger, article lists provided by Google have topics related to
national and international interest too.
Project Tiger 2.0 collaborated with Wikipedia Asian Month and WWWW because
both are crucial contests for local Wikipedias. Collaboration was
necessary because we wanted to stabilize/bring together all the
communities. WAM is a big contest and if we didn't collaborate with it, the
possibility was community members breaking into two groups, one for PT2.0
and the other for WAM.
Our agenda should be to merely increase or develop content on local wikis.
In the last iteration of WAM, participants created articles on Asian
countries or anything which are related to Asia excluding one's own
country. But the WAM team decided to change its rules for Project Tiger
2.0. Now we can create local articles also under WAM and submit the same
under Project Tiger 2.0. After 30 November, 2019, those articles will be
considered which are in the lists. Further, if you have any questions
please let us know.
