Hey Milos,

Just wanted to let you know about the research that just wrapped up in
India as a part of the New Readers project [1].

A team of staff and external researchers actually spent the last couple of
weeks in Delhi and Chennai gathering data in India through intensive
on-the-ground research. The research was largely focused on people who are
not yet editors (or even necessarily readers) of our projects so that we
can understand how people approach knowledge, learning, the internet, etc..

We also actively sought out meetings with community members in India while
the team was there, and are looking forward to continuing to connect now
that the team is back home.

This follows similar endeavors in Nigeria and Mexico, which have already
led to some really interesting insights that'll help to shape how the
Foundation operates within similar markets.

All of the research is currently being analyzed and the findings will be
shared in the next few months (WMF Q1) along with as much of the raw data
as possible.

We know how important India is, and also how large a challenge it'll be to
fully understand and work with users (and prospective users) there. This
research project will provide a good foundation for further work and
outreach in India and similarly complex regions.

Best,
Anne
