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 people turned out more than expected and are excited that they could contribute in Igbo Language. They also feel the project should continue because it is a way of transmitting our culture from generation to generation.

  • What did not work so well?

The people turned out more than I expected but some started disappearing because they could not afford transport fare to attend meet ups and that there will be no stipend for them.

  • What would you do differently next time?

If it's possible, I will advise we find a way of reimbursing the attendees their transport fares in other to motivate them.
