Dear Indian Wikimedians,
Those of you in the hacker community would be aware that the 30th
Chaos Communication Congress will be live streamed at a special event
in a himalayan hackerspace called Ghoomakad  between Dec 27-30.
Since it will be unique gathering of technologists in this remote
region, it is also an ideal opportunity to conduct a mediawiki
hackathon/wikimedia outreach that will be able to target a culturally
diverse group of people including the Tibetan exile community from
Dharamshala which is 10 km away.
As one of the residents of the hackerspace and an active Wikimedian, I
have prepared a proposal to the Chapter to provide for travel and
accommodation scholarships to 4 Wikimedia volunteers who would like to
lead and support a hackathon in the village. You can see the detailed
proposal and budget breakdown here:
Since time is short, those interested to lead the hackathon or conduct
outreach in the local schools can already apply for the travel
PS: Do note that this grant is pending approval by the Chapter EC and
the scholarship is subject to that decision. In the meantime do share
this with any community member you might know in the Delhi/North area.
Queries on the proposal are also invited on the talk page of the proposal.
