(Forwarding this to the Wikimedia list, as it's really more suited to 
that list.)

Thanks for sharing this, Sumana - at Wikimedia UK we're going to be 
delivering a 'Train the Trainers' program over the next year - more 
details are at http://uk.wikimedia.org/wiki/Train_the_Trainers_Tender. 
The trustee in charge of our education budget, Martin Poulter, has 
really pushed this from a vague plan to an actual programme, and 
hopefully once it's up and running we'll be able to expand that page 
rather a lot!
