Did you meet your goals? Are you happy with how the project went?
Yes, I meet the goals as per the grant proposal. Well, I am quite happy because of the motivation, support and equal participation from the fellow Wikimedians. This is my first individual grant and I am satisfied to complete the project. This is first Edit-a-thon with some complex rules (for valid article — 1500 words and 10000 bytes) to produce good articles during the competition. At the end of the competition there was 12 good articles, which was simply amazing.



Two meetups were held on different places of Rajbiraj. We discuss about the progress of Edit-a-thon.
