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 raise more than the expected number of particpants as as well as the number of expected articles to be created and improved.
  • What did not work so well? We assume that the delay of the grant funds resulted into some inconveniences that were not in line with plans but regardless ,We were able to handle them, We cant forget mentioning the unfullfiled need of particpants to celebrate in person which was as a result of the ongoing pandemic .
  • What would you do differently next time? next time, the funds could be sent in time to avoid inconveniences, and we hope that the participants may have a chance to meet in person with each other for other incoming projects as the measures put in place to control of covid-19 get lifted
