GoalsEdit

Did you meet your goals? Are you happy with how the project went?

Yes, we met our goals. Yes, we are happy with how the project went.
  1. Awareness about Wikipedia and Wikimedia projects:
    We have printed 500 Qty. Wiki-informative Calendars from which 250 Qty. was for the previous year 2077 and 250 Qty. for current year 2078. We have successfully distributed it to local educational institutions' Professors, Teachers, and Students. Model Multiple College's students are eager to join the Wikimedia movement. We will be catching up with them soon as the second wave of the pandemic will come in control.
  2. Engaging new readers:
    There is significant change in unique devices statistics of Maithili and Nepali Wikipedia. The total daily average views received on normal days from unique devices analysis is 6,792 whereas the total daily average views received on project days from unique devices analysis is 7958. There is change of approx. 1166 views. Thus, we can say that we have successfully achieved this goal.
  3. Online promotion of the project:
    It's work-in-progress. As said in the proposal, Wiki-informative Calendar offers year-round exposure of Wikimedia projects. We will be posting/promoting Wiki-informative Calendar's contents every month for a whole year 2078/2021.
