Telugu has been a focus language area for the last 3 years. The plan starts with a critical overview of CIS-A2K's work and presents the plan of activities for the year starting July 2016 to June 2017.
Performance against PlansEdit
In 2015-16, CIS-A2K put its efforts to have organic growth of leadership in the community. Through consultations and following Village pump discussions, revised the needs assessment and worked along with community needs. CIS-A2K has taken several roles like conducting, co-organizing, organizing, facilitating events in order to work closely, increase community participation and fill the gaps in conducting outreach.

- Community meetups started in another city - Vijayawada, in the resource centre created for Wikipedia activities in collaboration with Andhra Loyola College.
- Spread awareness on Telugu Wikipedia through media mentions. For example: activities like Photowalk co-organized in AP state archaeological museum got covered in electronic as well as major print media.
Revisiting the Needs AssessmentEdit
- CIS-A2K conducts both annual and monthly needs assessment on collaborating with community. Apart from On-wiki discussions, CIS-A2K kept time for assessment during Community meetups and outreach activities. Community is consulted in all programs during designing and implementation.
