Hi everyone,

The Wikimedia Foundation, in partnership with Google and the Centre for
Internet and Society, is launching a pilot project to address local online
knowledge content gaps in India. The project is designed to engage and
support active Wikipedia volunteers to produce valuable new content in
local Indian languages. The pilot will run from November 2017 to May 2018
and will collaborate with Wikimedia India chapter, Wikimedia user groups,
and may involve up to ten Indian language Wikimedia communities based on
their interest and participation.

The overall goal of the project is to increase the number, depth, and
relevance of Wikipedia articles in Indian languages. We will evaluate
success along these dimensions and will share results with the Wikimedia
community after the pilot’s completion.
