Wikimedia Community of Kazakh language User Group (kk. Қазақ тілінде сөйлейтін уикимедиашылардың қатысушылар тобы) is a group of people interested in improving Wikimedia projects in the Kazakh language. The group was founded on November 28, 2019 and it was recognized by the Wikimedia Foundation Affiliations Committee on March 24, 2020.

Who we are edit

Previously, in 2011, there was an attempt to create a Wikimedia Kazakhstan, but it didn't succeed. Later, in the end of 2019, we decided to choose language focus instead of the territorial one, so an November 28, 2019, we've made an application to User group status as a language oriented community. Application was approved by Wikimedia Foundation Affiliations Committee on March 24, 2020.

Our main goal is to support Kazakh-speaking community in Wikimedia projects. This means to improve the performance of Kazakh-speaking users, to increase the collaboration between the members of our group, with other affiliates and organizations outside of Wikimedia who are interested in sharing knowledge; to create meetups, contests. Our main goal is consistent with the Wikimedia mission — we want to make knowledge accessible all over the world, and our part of this goal is to make it accessible for Kazakh speakers, and we will do our best to fulfill this mission. Our main working projects are Kazakh Wikipedia, Kazakh Wiktionary, Wikidata and Wikimedia Commons.

We also want to state that we haven't abandoned our efforts to make Wikimedia Kazakhstan chapter to provide support for wikimedians in Kazakhstan in all languages. After establishing the country affiliate we will remain working on different projects to improve representation of Kazakh language in Wikimedia ecosystem since it is used by people not only in Kazakhstan but also in Russia, China, Uzbekistan, Mongolia, Iran and other countries.
