Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

Greetings from Khmer Wikipedia! We are one of the tiny language projects in Wikimedia family which most of the time are left behind the corners with no or little support from others. We managed to start the movement, but couldn't grow up due to many aspects of issues and challenges. Thus, we would like to share everyone our own stories, from a perspective of a small language project - to have our voices heard and to open a floor for relevant stakeholders in our big family to help us out. Representing the tiny language projects, Khmer Wikipedia would like to call for supports in any forms - either training, capacity building... to help small language projects capable to promote the word of free knowledge and bring more awareness, engage more participants from relevant members of its own community of native language speakers. Thank you!
