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 participants were enthusiastic about learning and even went ahead to make contributions though it was meant to be a campaign.

  • What did not work so well?

The response on the first day was not up to expectation but the next day they really turned out.

  • What would you do differently next time?

In the subsequent ones we will try as much as possible to work on areas of lapses.
