Did you meet your goals? Are you happy with how the project went?

I was able to achieve my goals for this project. In general, while there are a few things I now realize I could've or should've done differently, they were mostly minor things so yes, I am happy with how the project went.


Please report on your original project targets. Please be sure to review and provide metrics required for Rapid Grants.

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?

One technique I used during this project that really worked was splitting participants up into smaller groups of between 5 - 7 people and then one of the team members / experienced editors took charge of training each group. This way, participants were able to ask questions directly and the trainer was able to carry each participant along and really get them involved.

  • What did not work so well?

I tried to get more people to create articles but we weren't able to adequately explain all aspects of article creation to participants so we ended up with quite a few unfinshed articles at the end of the project

  • What would you do differently next time?

I would prepare training materials such as slides and cheatsheets instead of simply relying on the other experienced editors.

Remaining funds[edit]

Do you have any remaining grant funds?

The funds remaining from this grant in the amount of US$167.31 (67,550 NGN equivalent calculated on 8 December 2021) were deducted from another grant payment for Grants:Project/Rapid/Public Domain Day 2022 Celebration in Nigeria.


I'd like to use the leftover funds as part of a new grant for a photowalk and edit-a-thon in the 2nd semester
