3. Add or improve content on monuments in RWANDA: We have been able to document different monuments across the country

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 organization of online workshops was successful and we collaborated well with the institutions in charge
- What did not work so well?
Because of lack of experience in new editors, drafted articles are still being improved before publishing
- What would you do differently next time?
We will train our new editors as early as possible in order to mitigate our barriers and we will increase our research and collaborate more in order to get more information on monuments and heritages sites
