Capacity building[edit]

Board Training[edit]

Training for board members is really important since the board needs to acquire and develop a wide range of skills. We need to develop and implement programs and projects for our members. We need to learn how to create budgets, how to efficiently organise a meeting, how to interact with institutions and government, how to take decisions, how to make financial reports. We need to learn the legal requirements, and how to collaborate in a professional way in general.

Wikimedia training[edit]

We should organise decent Wikimedia training for the community members. How to write decent articles, how to comply with the free licenses how to support the Friendly space policy.
