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

I met two of my goals set out. Am happy with how the event went but the time of recruiting new editors was limited as such, i feel people became aware of wikimedia projects but the hands on time was limited.



Please report on your original project targets.

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 presentation was a success despite the language barrier , the students were able to get better understanding about Wikimedia projects

  • What did not work so well?

The time allotted to me was decreased due to delays in the program and as such we were not able to carry out the practical session

  • What would you do differently next time?

I would consider targeting fewer numbers for the hands on sessions

I would hold a post or pre conference event
