Grants are quite essentials for the growth of nonprofit organizations as well as individuals who work to create open source tools and contribute towards Openness. I was honored to have received recently a Shuttleworth Foundation flash grant from Shuttleworth fellow Anasuya Sengupta. Under the scope of this grant, I am planning to build a few tools for some of the indigenous languages of India that will help grow the online presence of those languages.

Currently, I am in the early stage of the project, and some of the ideas I am toying with my team at O Foundation (OFDN) are are — creating IPA converters, and translation and input tools. More details on the tools to follow soon.

A large part OFDN’s work is to use technology in growing online readership and contribution in endangered and other marginalized languages. This grant opportunity will help us build more open resources.

I would like to thanks Anasuya, the Whose Knowledge? team, and Jason Hudson and other friends from Shuttleworth for this great support.
