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?

How the people of Kano and Students we've reached have accepted and show their interest in Wikipedia makes us very happy. And we have reached some students and lectures of Hausa Languages ​​in Colleges also show us their interest and assure us that they will contribute to the development of Hausa Wikipedia. We also met with the management of Gidan Rumfa Museum Kano and they also asked us to connect them with the leaders of the Hausa Wikimedians User Group to build relationships with each other.

  • What did not work so well?

Due to the security situation in Northern Nigeria, we cannot visit some planned visited schools. This is because the securities of some schools have assured us that we will not be able to access their schools due to security concerns, while others have refused to attend because of security concerns.

  • What would you do differently next time?

We have a WhatsApp Group that we will continue to teach new users editing Wikipedia.
