Mozilla Gujarat’s Firefox Hindi Pilot Campaign

AmCspf8Y-5HmEh0Mz6KaaTC3LnMxhzQzq-8fXIpsHkVCWe hosted Firefox Hindi Pilot Campaign in late October to educate and inspire Firefox lovers to use Firefox Hindi browser. Our contributors and community members also campaigned offline and online to spread awareness about the Firefox Hindi Pilot Campaign among their friends, family, colleagues and everyone.

Our meetup and campaign to educate our users about the Firefox Hindi was hosted on 25th October at Zen Cafe in Ahmedabad. During the campaign, we explained about Firefox’s Hindi and Marathi versions, we also explained about localization efforts being made by Mozilla to give users their choice of browser in their choice of language and we also explained about the awesome Mozilla L10N community – the Mozilla’s community team behind the localized version of Mozilla products and documents.

We are excited to say that we got new team members to join us in our efforts to spread the Mozilla mission and we are looking forward to form our team of Mozilla l1on within our MozGuj community 🙂

Looking forward to contribute to Mozilla l10n community with our new members and carry forward this Firefox Hindi Pilot Campaign to all of the Hindi Firefox users.

And we got to share sweet swags, sharing is caring, you know!
(Thanks Umesh Agarwal for the swag :D)

We were really amazed with the huge and brilliant response to the drawing competition!
The children were really making it a big show with their excellent drawing on FoxYeah theme.

 

The participants included children, school & college going students as well as professionals, noble citizens and educators who were all enthusiastic about Mozilla and our events.
We were bit of happily surprised to learn that some of them already knew what is Mozilla’s mission and how to keep it promoting!
