We work with people in the Wikimedia movement, educational institutions, policy makers, and others to help people around the world engage with Wikimedia projects to learn and grow throughout their lives. We want to build a world where knowledge is available and equitable for everyone, and people have the skills and information they need to thrive in the digital age.
