Dear All,

Wikimedia India is happy to report its annual activities undertaken in the
previous financial year 2018-19, beginning 1st April , 2018 until 31st
March 2019. All activities undertaken have been self-financed by different
Wikimedia India members either individually or collectively and not a
single penny of community funds have been spent on conducting any
programmatic activity.
No Wikimedia Foundation Grants like Rapid Grant, Project Grant etc have
been applied & by following with the real Wikimedia Culture,  all Wikimedia
India members in their individual capacity have taken to finance India
Chapter Activities for Capacity Developments, Awareness, Partnerships, etc.

As you all are aware, Wikimedia India continues to undergo a financial
crisis because it cannot receive any funding [1] from its primary donor
Wikimedia Foundation(USA). However, Wikimedia India continues to do
whatever it can, with its current constraints, to take the Wikimedia
movement forward in India.

Wikimedia India looks forward to the community review on its activities
hosted and more importantly on expectations from the larger community, and
suggestions on how they want Wikimedia India to perform this financial
year, holding that funding's may remain frozen.
