Subject: [Wikipedia-BN] Formation of Wikimedia Bangladesh - (local chapter of the Wikimedia Foundation)
To: Discussion list for Bangladeshi Wikimedians <>,

Dear Wikipedians,

I am very pleased to announce our initiative to create an official
Bangladesh chapter of the Wikimedia Foundation, named Wikimedia
Bangladesh. Maybe many of you already know: currently the existence of
this chapter is unofficial, but we believe it is time to get an
official identity to promote free knowledge all over Bangladesh more
efficiently. We have already formed a small work-group to work in this
process [1].

Wikimedia Bangladesh will be a non-profit organisation devoted towards
promoting Wikipedia and related projects and creating public awareness
in Bangladesh.

To kick-start the process, we have contacted the Chapters Committee
[2] of the Wikimedia Foundation. We also updated our chapter page [3]
on Meta-Wiki [4]. We have also submitted the draft of our Memorandum
of Association [5]. Currently the creation of this chapter is under
active consideration by the Chapters Committee.

We invite Bangladeshi wikipedians to support the Wikimedia Bangladesh
chapter and review the official memorandum of understanding. Please
reply in this thread and provide your invaluable feedback.

With regards,

Ragib Hasan
