Committee members will collaborate with @AKoval_WMF as a partner or advisor on a global historical data collection campaign that will collect and count and analyze and report data, metrics, and statistics from Wikimedia Education Programs around the world.
Additional information forthcoming.
Please see also this mailing list thread: [Education-collab] Numbers, please..? :)

My big project this quarter will be collecting precisely this type of data and sharing it with the wider wiki world.
To my knowledge, no other global data collection campaign of this kind has ever been attempted before. And now that the program has grown to almost 80 countries  it's high time we undertake it!
This isn't an easy or a simple task by any means. So if there are Collab members who are interested in/have experience with/enjoy data collection and analysis, I would welcome one or more partners/advisors in this process. (This could be a new Phabricator task to claim!) :)
I will definitely include your question about what was added in the last year in particular. That's a great metric to have because it demonstrates our growth. However, two years back data could be more difficult to collect given incomplete/inconsistent documentation/record keeping by various programs along with volunteer attrition/burnout/turnover in various communities.
Unfortunately, all this is to say that we do not have the numbers you need now/yet -- but we're working on it!
