KuboF Hromoslav was full-time volunteer of World Esperanto Youth Organization and agreed to use part of his time to serve as a Wikimedian in Residence, supposedly for the first time in an Esperanto organisation. His tasks were centered around 2 topics:
- Esperanto125 - coordinated translation task force on topic of Esperanto (movement, history, culture etc);
- supporting important Esperanto meetings using Esperanto Wikivoyage.
The work was intended to be started and initially coordinated by KuboF and continue afterward. But the allocated time was too little and the volunteering work ran into other problems and the results were moderate and non-self-sustainable.
