Goals[edit]

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

We were able to meet 95% of our goals due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the challenges, we are happy with the outcome of this project.
  • A total of 4 events were organized: two offline and two online
  • A total of 18 editors participated in all four events
  • 18 articles edited and 3 new articles created on Wikipedia and 2 new articles on Wikidata

Outcome[edit]

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

4 Events 4 Two online and 2 offline events (including a panel discussion, online training for our trainers)
20 people attending 35 people attended all events 30 people joining physically, 5 joining virtually
10 new Editors 16 new editors


All participants at the 4 events were editing Wikipedia for the first time.

45 Wikipedia and Wikidata articles created or improved 18 articles were improved

3 Wikipedia articles were created

2 Wikidata Items were created

Due to time constraints and very few reliable online resources to source information from, we could not reach our target.
12 repeated participants (for projects that include a series of events) 16 new editors We had 1 repeated participant from one of the meetings


Learning[edit]

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 had a team set up to handle the project, each person responsible for a certain task, this helped us regulate and run the project.
  • There was a lot of social media publicity around it on all our social media platforms and community pages on WhatsApp.
  • We mapped out the community members that the program may benefit and we shared the information with them so that they can participate in it.


  • What did not work so well?
  • We had a low turnout with the online session, most people preferred the physical sessions.
  • There was low engagement on the part of the participants that joined virtually, their participation could not be monitored as much as the participants who joined in physically.


  • What would you do differently next time?
  • In the future online sessions will focus more on the participants ensuring they are following and encouraging them to share their screens to make sure they are participating.
  • More publicity around the online sessions to encourage more people to join in.
