- Short-term: a) To grow the the aforementioned Wikimedia projects and the contributor communities by providing them with resources, b) collaborate with other regional like minded organizations like authors, publishers, and GLAM institutions to further the growth of the Wikimedia projects and the communities, and c) evaluate to find both the technical and other resources needed, and create open resources in collaboration with both global movement entities and beyond.
- Long-term: To mature to a formal organization that will strive to become a major stakeholder in the development of Odia language in a digital way, influence the public policy to widen openness and the freedom of software and knowledge, and integrate itself into other research and knowledge creation projects that will potentially benefit the Wikimedia projects.
- Creating focused WikiProjects, edit-a-thons and contests around local events to leverage local resources e.g. Wiki Loves Ratha Jatra, a photography designed by the Odia Wikimedia community helped bring over 380 quality images and videos including documenting indigenous chariot making and several cultural rituals during an event "Ratha Jatra" originated locally
- Localizing global Wikimedia initiatives. BBC's 100 Women Editathon was an inspiration to start the Sambad 100 Women Editathon to grow Odia Wikipedia's reach about notable Odia women in collaboration with Odia-language daily the Sambad
- Identifying needs of the community and creating tools/resources that can not just benefit the Wikimedia community but a wider audience. The encoding converter that was created by the Odia Wikimedians is arguably of the most used encoding converter by the Odia news media apart from it being used widely for encoding conversion of acquired e-books to Unicode inside Odia Wikisource. As a deep believer of the FLOSS philosophy, the community has been sharing most of its source code publicly under open licenses.
- Regular edit-a-thons, workshops, digitization sprints (see WikiProject Pothi), and training programs
- Drive to collaborate with authors, publishers and copyright holders to relicense copyrighted text under Wikimedia project-compatible Creative Commons licenses like CC0, CC-BY, and CC-BY-SA licenses that can directly grow Wikimedia projects, and provide open access to paywalled knowledge.
- Participation, collaboration and resources exchange on a regular basis with other regional and global movement affiliates and co-create initiatives that will benefit the Wikimedia projects and the communities
- Focus on regional leadership like city-level community activities on a regular basis by the WikiTungi model
- Meetups and workshops organized by Odia Wikimedians since 2011
- Regular activities by two active WikiTungis WikiTungi Puri, and WikiTungi Bhubaneswar
- IRC logs of all the IRCs since 2011
