User:Mrb Rafi

I usually work as a project manager and an organizer in the Wikimedia Movement locally and globally. I'm very much interested in the outreach activities and working with the newbies in the movement. I'm also interested in creating leadership and skilled volunteers in the communities. I'm the founder of NDEC Wikipedia Editorial and Research Team. Besides I'm a certified Media & Information Literacy trainer of Reading Wikipedia in the Classroom program.
