A snapshot of Wikimedia education activities in Asia:
a report from the 2017 site visit to Nepal, India, and Taiwan

What happened as a result of the site visits? We asked the main focal points to provide comments, and we also issued a survey to participants to gain some insight

The following information was provided by the main focal point for each site visit.


Institutions visited are excited to run the Wikipedia education program. During the meeting we had an opportunity to learn about the need and expectations from the Institutions and how the institutions and Wikipedia Education program can work together to make a win-win relation.

Wikimedians of Nepal are motivated with the importance given by the Wikimedia Foundation and they feel that the Foundation has given their contribution an appreciation. We were trained on how to make a program design. We plan to run a bigger pilot in first quarter of the 2018


At Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences, Bhubaneswar there has been a concrete proposal to renew the WEP program that had been discontinued after 2014.


The new education program manager has created a case study about ongoing education programs in Taiwan based on advice given during the 1:1 consultations.
