First step with Wikimedia Project
As an active Kannada Wikipedian, we got to know about Individual Engagement Grants (IEG) which is meant to support Wikimedians to take up some specialization projects that inline with the Wikimedia philosophy and benefits Wikimedia movement. Shivu, Deepu & I as team wanted to propose an idea which is an extension of Pustaka Sanchaya and has the motive to help Kannada Wikipedia projects with a digital library. With some brainstorming the idea with our fellow Wikipedians, we could submit our proposal and lucky to have the grant approved.
