The Chattogram Wikipedia Community is the first of the seven regional communities of the Wikimedia Bangladesh, working to provide volunteer support for the promotion and expansion of Wikimedia projects in the Chattogram Division of Bangladesh. The community was formed on 14 July 2014 and was approved by the Regional Council constitution of the Wikimedia Bangladesh in November 2016.
