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?

We were able to engage the active participants both online and physically and disbursed data to them and this encouraged them to contribute more.

  • What did not work so well?

The team tried as much as possible to ensure that all those who were present for the trainings were encouraged to contribute but few were not active despite the support we provided.

  • What would you do differently next time?

Next time we'll do everything to ensure that only people that are willing to contribute are part of events.
