Projects do not always go according to plan. Sharing what you learned can help you and others plan similar projects in the future. Help the movement learn from your experience by answering the following questions:

  • What worked well?

The participant's turnout was very encouraging. They were all seated on time waiting for kick off. The training was so coordinated as all hands were on deck to make sure there were no lapses.

  • What did not work so well?

Network wasn't so good to us as we struggled to navigate the platform. But we were able to pull through as we made available an external Wi-Fi source to aid what we had available to aid our edits.

  • What would you do differently next time?

Next time, I will make room for more fuel to support power as it is risky to rely of Nigerian Nepa. Our hall host tried making more fuel available but the hike this period was a limitation as we had to source for more fuel on the day of the event.
