This Category:Wikimedia chapters is either empty, or sparsely populated;
and needs to be 'populated' with articles, stubs (and / or other categories)
relevant to the subject matter of this specific category.

You can include an article page in this category via one (or more) of three methods:
a) – add Wikimedia chapters in the appropriate field of its infobox template
b) – 'tag' a word within the prose of the article, as in {{tag|Wikimedia chapters}}
c) – add [[Category:Wikimedia chapters]] at the bottom of the edit box.

Wikimedia chapters are independent organizations founded to support and promote the Wikimedia projects within a specified geographical region, such as a country[1] or state. Like the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF), they aim to "empower and engage people around the world to collect and develop educational content under a free license or in the public domain, and to disseminate it effectively and globally".

As of April 2013, there are 39 chapters which currently exist, with at least one Chapter on every continent of the world (except Antarctica). Existing chapters sign an agreement, known as Chapter Agreements with the Wikimedia Foundation. Individual chapters can seek help from fellow chapters via the Wikimedia Chapters Association. New chapters are created via the Affiliations Committee (also known as Wikimedia Chapcom).

The Wikimedia Foundation (WMF), founded 20 June 2003, is the non-profit organization responsible for a very large number (over 850 in total) of very active wikis, grouped together and known as 'projects'; as well as the wiki engine software initially developed for them known as MediaWiki. The Foundations' wiki projects include Wikipedia (encyclopedias), Wiktionary (dictionary and thesaurus), Wikiquote (quotations), Wikibooks (open content textbooks), Wikinews (news source), Wikisource (free content primary and secondary source texts), Wikispecies (a free species directory), and many others as listed below. Most of these projects have separate wiki versions written in many different languages. There is also the Wikimedia Commons (for images, videos and other media files that can be used by all the Wikimedia projects), Wikidata (central space for data used on all WMF projects), and the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki (for issues common to all Wikimedia projects). Its most recent project, Wikivoyage (a 'travelpedia'), was inducted to WMF in late 2012.

Wikimedia Foundation is a member of the Open Source Initiative.
