To spread Localized Firefox in India, Mozilla India Localization community is hosting a pan-India campaign for Hindi & Marathi. The campaign run from 2nd Oct to 1st Nov. To show users that Firefox is available in their language we are creating a campaign that helps fans of Firefox invite the people in their networks to download Firefox. We are creating unique, sharable pieces of content that are humorous, insightful and topical to get the conversation and activities started.

What is Firefox

  • Firefox is the trusted Web browser of choice for hundreds of millions of people around the world.
  • Firefox puts you in control of your online life and puts everything you need in a personal and customized Web experience.
  • We believe the Web should be accessible to all so we make Firefox for Windows, Mac and Linux and localize it in around 90 languages with help from the global Mozilla community.
  • Firefox has a streamlined and extremely intuitive design to let you focus on any content, app or website – a perfect balance of simplicity and power.

#WeRunWithFirefox 

We always tried to our best to reach out the people, so 1st time ever this new thing we have initiated that, we target the people’s from different industries like medical, stationery, photo studio, cyber cafe, printing press, etc. Me and my team have made small groups so at the same time we can reach out many people’s and will let them better understand about Firefox and its better use.  Each day we go to meet different industry peoples so we can take feedback from individual and will make it better.
We target Firefox to download on Desktops, Laptops, Android Phones, OS Like, Windows,MAC,Linux,etc.

I was thinking to give some name to this initiative so that it will inspire others to do the same thing in their region/area and this chain will be work continuously not only for this particular period of time campaign but also whole year. This seems to be running event for all of us to do campaign for #Firefox so why don’t we named it #WeRunWithFirefox, the word itself tell everything.

When I have share this name on my 1st Facebook post to let my other community members know about this initiative, and when they read about this they all loved it, many members pinged me personally and they all appreciated the name given.Read More »

So these students had no or very less knowledge about computers or the Internet. So we made the event agenda as simple as possible. We tried to cover all simple topics.Read More »

What’s maker party?

Maker  Party is Mozilla’s global campaign to teach the web. Through  thousands  of community-run events around the world, Maker Party unites   educators, organizations and enthusiastic web users with hands-on   learning and making.

Visit the Maker Party to learn more: http://party.webmaker.org

Why Mozilla throws an annual Maker Party?

Mozilla  believes the web is a global  public resource that’s integral to modern  life: it shapes how we learn,  how we connect and how we communicate.  But many of us don’t understand  its basic mechanics or what it means to  be a citizen of the web. That’s  why we’re so passionate about teaching  web literacy through hands-on  learning and making. Our goal is to help  people move beyond simply  consuming the web to understanding and  creating it, so it remains open,  accessible and ours.

The main motto of maker party is “LEARN BY TEACHING“.

The  best way to learn the web is to teach it. Hosting a Maker Party is  not  only personally rewarding, it contributes to the greater goal of   increasing web literacy for everyone, everywhere in the world.
We throw the Maker Party for 3 days, 30th July to 1st Aug.

Reason :  

A successful Student Ambassador is enthusiastic about and familiar with Firefox and Mozilla, experience planning events and organizing school activities, having some programming and Web Literacy can be helpful as well, Ambassadors should be comfortable answering basic questions about Web browsers, Firefox features, Firefox OS and how to get involved with Mozilla. There are many FSA’s who join Mozilla but don’t know about all the contribution areas and the responsibilities associated within those areas.

Purpose : 

Teach FSA about all contribution areas and make them aware about Mozilla and their responsibilities, so that they can contribute and give their best in their particular field of interest.
