Dear Wikimedians,

I wish to inform you about CIS-A2K’s new project “Train-a-Wikipedian” (TAW)

You may know of the English Wikipedia program Adopt-a-user
<>. We wanted to start
something similar for the Indian Wikimedia communities.

In February and June this year, CIS-A2K conducted Train the Trainer
<http://cis-a2k/Events/Train%20the%20Trainer%20Program> (TTT) and MediaWiki
Train the Trainer
(MWTTT). After conducting these two events, and communicating with the
participants we found the necessity to start a training program that we’ll
be running on regular basis, and from there we conceived this
“Train-a-Wikipedian” program.

Initially, we will be concentrating on these 5 Indian languages Wikis: 1)
Kannada, 2) Konkani, 3) Marathi, 4) Odia, 5) Telugu. But, we may expand
soon, if our program is a success.

In our TAW main page
<>, we have
listed a number of topics those we will be discussing during our training.
We hope to conduct hangout or webinar sessions.

Please provide your feedback and suggestion.

Tanveer Hasan A.K
