Thank you very much for your kind reply Vishnu,

Yes, outreach programs at schools has always been on our agenda. I know
Shushant has passion for it. We are celebrating Gujarati Wikisource's first
anniversary very soon (official announcement will be sent out), which has
been planned at an  educational institute.

We, as a community, have discussed this path a few times in our monthly web
meetings that I hold every first Sunday of month. We'll discuss it within
community once again and get back to you off the list, keeping interested
parties in loop.

Thanks once again for your kind words and appreciation for Satishchamdra
and his team.

Best Regards,
