Overall pilot year evaluation

What happened after the pilot?

The Foundation did not make a decision about changing the pilot-level funding of the program, so the program remained at that level of funding and continued to deliver trainings, develop curriculum, and mentor communities on that scale.

Trainings were delivered in:

  • WikiConference Bulgaria 2016
  • CEE Meeting 2017
  • Wikimedia Conference 2017
  • Wikimania 2017
  • India Wikidata Month 2017 (month-long series of Wikidata trainings in 8 major cities in India, to English and most Indic communities)
  • Estonia Wikidata training 2017
  • Nigeria (English, Igbo, and Yoruba communities)
  • Ghana (English and Ewe communities)
  • South Africa (English and South African language communities)
  • Wikimedia Conference 2018
  • Wikimania 2018
  • South Korea 2018 (Korean community)

Are you interested in building capacity within your community?

Please consider discussing with your community or Wikimedia affiliate and submitting some self-assessments to the Community Capacity Map! (CCM)

There are over thirty capacity areas described in the CCM Guidelines page. Take a look and see if you're inspired to think about which capacity would be most useful for your community or organization to work on building.

In the pilot year, there were six areas for development - read each capacity's scope, challenges, and potential solutions to see if you are interested. These areas were chosen after interviews with sixteen communities or countries (predominantly in the Global South), and seem to be the areas that affect a large portion of Wikimedia communities.

In each capacity space, we invite your comments and participation - to discuss and clarify challenges, existing solutions (from other communities), and potential future work (e.g. research, trainings, facilitated meetings, etc.).

What is the Community Capacity Development Project?

The purpose of the Community Capacity Development project is to (finally) make systematic progress toward building capacity within Wikimedia communities.

This project began with a phase of Community Research , where the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) conducted qualitative research into strengths, challenges and needs of different communities, aiming to understand the breadth and scope of capacity needs in emerging communities. These interviews were conducted with sixteen communities or countries[1] through in-depth video interviews with a small group of community members.

Preliminary results from this research phase was presented at the Wikimedia Conference 2015 in Berlin in May 2015. The slides are on Wikimedia Commons.
