Wow, thanks for sharing Sailesh! It's exciting to see such a collaboration
with a newspaper on this topic, and to involve journalists in the writing
process.

I'm really curious to how you came to work together, and hope you'll share
a bit more for learning purposes on that.  Will this collaboration focus on
the newspaper as employer of potential Wikipedians, or will there also be
an effort down the line to encourage the readers to follow the example?

Exciting!

Lodewijk

Hello Lodewijk,

I think it's the mutual interest by both Sambad and the Odia Wikipedia
community,  I remember Asaf's data (
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Ijon/Content_gap )helped me to explain
the gender gap in the content of Odia Wikipedia. I will share a learning
pattern after the event :)

The event is mainly focused on improving the quality of articles related to
Women on Odia Wikipedia, We hope the journalists will turn into Wikipedians
and make it successful. There's an assurance from Ama Odisha, a unit of
Eastern Media Ltd. that after the event they'll organise Odia Wikipedia
editing camps in different parts of Odisha.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Sambad's 100 Women Editathon

Dear All,

We finished the Sambad's 100 Women Editathon, As the event was of two days,
the first day was for training the journalists on “How to write on
Wikipedia, Create Account, Upload pictures etc”.. More than 30 journalists
and 3 Wikipedians from Bhubaneswar Tungi attended the event on first day.

On second day, All total 23 journalists and 6 Wikipedians from the
WikiTungi attended the event. The Wikipedians helped the journalists in
writing articles and almost 23 articles were created or improved during the
editathon. We shared the WikiTungi concept during the event and the
journalists were interested in taking part in Tungi meetups and learn more
about Wikipedia.
Tanaya Patnaik, the Executive Director of Eastern Media ltd. also announced
that the Tungi community in Bhubaneswar can use the "Ama Odisha" office for
the meetups. Sambad is also planning for Wiki Training camps in different
parts of Odisha, hope we will hear some good news about this.

I have some nice stories to share, I will share a broad report of this
event in the Wikimedia blog and will write a learning pattern on how the
two days event idea worked for this, how Sambad's effort helped in getting
some good articles and local community participation made it easy.  :)
