We support the goals of the Wikimedia Foundation, including the work of volunteers on Wikimedia projects as well as numerous other free knowledge initiatives. Our aim is to support, promote, and educate the general public about the availability and use of free and open educational content, which includes the ability to access, develop and contribute to Wikimedia projects. Our medium language is English (en) and/or Malay (ms), but we are also trying to expand the usage of Mandarin (zh), Cantonese (zh-yue) and Tamil (ta) languages, and probably one of the indigenous language of Malaysia.

In the event of discrepancy of information between the other language versions of this page, the English version of this Malaysia user group shall prevail. The Wikimedia Community User Group Malaysia upholds strict zero discrimination, venue with disability access, friendly space, nonprofit activities, weekend-only events, low profile and open and transparent policies.

Brief HistoryEdit

The organization was founded on 22 May 2016 in Nusajaya (Johor) with our very first meetup (in English). On 10 September 2017, it was recognized as a user group under the name Wikimedia Community User Group Malaysia by Wikimedia Foundation. On 12 February 2020, it was officially registered and listed as a national-level non-governmental organization (NGO) under the National Registration Department of the Ministry of Home Affairs of Malaysia under the designated name Wiki Community Welfare User Association Malaysia.

ObjectivesEdit

The main objectives of the affiliate is:

  • Organise public outreach activities around the county;
  • Act as a hub for Wikimedians in Malaysia;
  • Collaborate with the wider regional and international Wikimedia community (starting from neighboring countries of Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore etc and further to expand to more countries worldwide);
  • Promote Wikipedia and various Malaysian Wikimedia projects throughout Malaysia and rest of the World;
  • Act as a voice and representative for the Malaysian Wikimedia community.

To achieve these objectives, the User Group will organize and arrange various meetups, seminars, training and drives both on and off-wiki. Our goal is to set a solid foundation for a Wikimedia in Malaysia and to run series of Wikimedia-related projects and initiatives throughout Malaysia. All of these are being done with good-intention, open-mindedness, sincere heart, polite words, never look down/mock/make fun on anyone, and with the utmost respect to anyone we are dealing with, because we believe that anyone of us is different and has his/her own unique strength to contribute to the movement. This is what truly describe who we are.
