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?

1. Edo state NYSC Corp members were very interested and enthusiastic to participate despite the event was postponed twice.

2. We were able to recruit more female editors and participants for the event.

3. I requested for the event coordinator rights on Wikipedia; this enabled me create Wikipedia account for the participants who were experiencing IP block and this ultimately enabled them to work faster and more efficiently.

  • What did not work so well?

Basically the logistics issues that required us to postpone the event twice.

  • What would you do differently next time?

I’d try to make adequate confirmations before fixing a date to avoid postponing the event
