People working on this project shall be classified into 3 Team Categories
Major resource contributors – write articles in English mostly. Writes simple easy-to-share articles with the community.
Translate the articles written into the local languages. We shouldn’t translate the articles word by word, but must write them to suit the local taste, retaining only the essence of the content, so we can reach the readers better.
People who work on getting Media contacts, bloggers, magazines, volunteers etc. and also gather feedback from them once articles start to get published and give their feedback and suggestions to the Content Writer Teams and L10N teams appropriately.

- The Core Team shall monitor the whole process.

We definitely need to acknowledge and recognize the selfless contribution of the passionate volunteers who have worked hard towards attaining our goal. In that regard,
- There shall be a points table to each of the contributor. The more contribution that he/she makes, the more points they get.
