CIS-A2K/Events/WLM 2020 promotion in Maharashtra

WLM 2020 in MaharashtraEdit

WLM was a good opportunity to motivate old and new groups of Wikimedians in these times as it was a fully online activity. A2K mobilised groups from various places to prepare lists, get the official lists and involve them in the movement. Some success was there in spite of difficult situations, especially in Maharashtra. Pune and Aurangabad could not take up as the local mobilisers had to face COVID positive cases at home/relatives. We welcome the INTACH's initiative in this process. The training sessions were conducted with 5 groups, from which 324 images were contributed. The details are given below. A2K is planning to work with these teams on respective WikiProjects of their places, e.g. WikiProject Ichalkaranji, Ambajogai have been already started.

Following online events were conducted :
