Wikimedia Community User Group Pakistan is an officially recognised Wikimedia user group for Wikimedians living in, or connected to Pakistan.

As an official Wikimedia affiliate, 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 Pakistani public about the availability and use of free and open educational content, which includes the ability to access, develop and contribute to Wikimedia projects.



The main objectives of the affiliate are to;

  • organise public outreach activities on a national level,
  • act as a hub for Pakistani Wikimedians,
  • collaborate with the wider international Wikimedia community,
  • promote Wikipedia and various Pakistani language Wikimedia projects throughout Pakistan, and
  • act as a voice and representative for the Pakistani Wikimedia community

To achieve these objectives, the User Group will organize and arrange various competitions, drives, and meet-ups both on- and off-wiki. Our goal is to set the foundation for a Wikimedia Pakistan chapter.
