Excellent initiative.... we (openaccessindia.org) were also thinking to have either SAARC or South Asia group for Open Access... we have Open Access India, Open Access Pak, Open Access Nepal... if others too establish communities and work for Open Access in South Asia... that would be great...

For the OpenCon 2016 Ranchi, we would be having a session on Editing/Contributing to Wikipedia and its projects.

Subject: [Wikimediaindia-l] SAARC Mailing List


During WikiConference India 2016, the chapter and user-group representatives from  South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) held a short meeting on 6th August evening.

One of the outcomes of the meetings was to create a SAARC mailing list. SAARC mailing is the first attempt for SAARC Wikimedians to come on a common platform for discussions and doing programs together.

The interested Indian community members may subscribe to the mailing list.
