The Boris and Ināra Teterev Foundation provided support to help the Wikipedia open encyclopaedia achieve its goals of: improving infrastructure, increasing the number of visitors to the encyclopaedia, improving the quality of content, expanding the accessibility of the encyclopaedia’s content in more languages, introducing innovations.
Since 2015, the Foundation has co-financed the Wikipedia Educational Program. Under its auspices, college and university students are trained in the preparation of Wikipedia articles, using the resources offered by Wikipedia to prepare the information found in the encyclopaedia amounting to at least 10 million written signs.
The programme spans 67 countries outside North America, engaging over 1,000 students per semester (of whom a significant proportion are female students).
At present, Wikipedia is available in almost 300 languages including Latvian, Livonian and Russian, which are used in Latvia. Wikipedia is visited by over 400 million visitors a month online.
