Wikimedia Community of Kazakh language User Group


Wikimedia Community of Kazakh language User Group (kk. Уикимедиа қауымдастығының қазақтілді қолданушылар тобы) - group of people interested in Wikimedia projects in Kazakh language.


To improve the performance of our users, to increase the collaboration between the members and other organizations outside of Wikimedia who are interested in sharing the knowledge, to create meetups, contests. In future we plan to make the community even bigger, e.g. Wikimedia Kazakhstan. Our main goal is consistent with the Wikimedia mission - we want to make knowledge accessible all over the world, especially in Kazakh language and we will do our best to fulfill this mission.
