Anything else you want to share about your project?

It was unfortunate that very poor internet service at the venue of the event affected greatly the impact of the event which was held in partnership with the state government. Though, a lot of the participants were so happy to be introduced to the basis of Wikipedia but we felt an hands on training will be a better ideal. Therefore, we are planning a follow up exercise so that the participants will be introduced to a hand on experience. Olaniyan Olushola (talk) 16:33, 31 July 2018 (UTC)
