Company Profile/

The Wikimedia Foundation is the nonprofit that hosts Wikipedia and our other free knowledge projects.

We want to make it easier for everyone to share what they know. To do this, we keep Wikipedia and Wikimedia sites fast, reliable, and available to all.

We protect the values and policies that allow free knowledge to thrive. We build new features and tools to make it easy to read, edit, and share from the Wikimedia sites.

Above all, we support the communities of volunteers around the world who edit, improve, and add knowledge across Wikimedia projects.

MEF Interview – Wikimedia foundation

MEFTV speaks to Jorge Vargas and Jack Rabah from the Wikimedia Foundation, who explains the objectives of the non-profit Foundation in focusing on efforts to make Wikipedia a truly global free knowledge resource – while widely known and used in the US and Europe, only 30% of Wikipedia traffic comes from emerging countries.

As part of the Wikimedia 2030 vision, the Wikimedia Foundation is working to expand partnerships with mission aligned organizations by empowering communities to participate in knowledge creation and sharing.
