Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

Wikimedia Education Programme will help to develop the current education system, both primary and secondary levels in Bangladesh. Now-a-days, students are being acknowledged with information and technology on their text books, as a part of digitalization project taken by the government of Bangladesh. This program will provide the students with the knowledge of how to use the open content as well as introduce to Wikipedia. Besides, this will teach how to use Wikipedia in their education and how to contribute in Wikipedia. As an example we can show How to create a Wikipedia article.
