|CIS-A2K strongly feels that skill-building initiatives play a very crucial role to empower a Wikimedia community. In the Strategic plan June 2016 - July 2018, CIS-A2K proposed that we would gradually "move from the facilitator role to an active contributor towards skill building initiatives."
To become a self-sustaining community, a community needs leaders who can train others, or conduct and lead outreach, GLAM and other Wiki activities. A community also needs Wiki-technical training for resolving various tech issues.
CIS-A2K continuously receive requests from Indic Wikimedians to conduct and support/power skill-building and other Wiki-technical training workshops.training and this has been one our topmost priorities.
During this work-plan year also CIS-A2K will work on various community strengthening and skill development initiatives.
