Dear Indic community members,
I am writing to share to share with you an update from the Malayalam Wiki community. The
Malayalam Wikipedia Education Programme - a partnership between the Malayalam Wiki
Community and the Government of Kerala's IT@School Project was inaugurated on June 4th
in Anchal, Kollam. There are inspiring pictures of the function on Commons.
This has already been covered in a very nice way by the press in this article.
Shiju has posted a blog about this Programme. There are some useful tips for all Indic
communities who might be interested in education programmes. These include a focus on
importance of local content as well as the crucial involvement of community members who
are teachers and students as new editors. There is also an example of how to build strong
partnerships with education authorities with support from community members involved in
Do join me in congratulating the Malayalam community, in wishing this project the very
best of success, in welcoming the students as new editors and in looking forward to
fantastic content from the beautiful Kollam region of Kerala.
