Anything else[edit]

Anything else you want to share about your project? Actually It is so delightful and great to as I caried out this project as first start. This project has became great impact to my students because it brings out good and great result to Notion Computer Technology especially to those students that participate in the event. NCT is an institute for enhancing Information Technology with hundreds population of students. I will love to apply for another project to invite others from different departments to give subsequent workshops if possible after every two months. I will also wish to create a user group “Notion Wikimedians User Groups” to add more users and keep giving the tutorial with more information on Wikipedia projects or movement. Some students feel somehow because they were not selected to participate to the workshop. I will love Wikimedia foundation to consider this condition to be approving my grant application. Lastly, I will like to dropdown my couple of gratitude to Wikipedia foundation and rapid grant for considering my grant proposal with all experienced editor and the participants that standstill to see this project succeeded. Best Regard. Umar Ibrahim Askira!
