Learning[edit]

What worked well[edit]

  • Working with photographers helped us not spread ourselves thin and we were able to get better quality of images
  • Focusing on uncovered regions in terms of documenting monuments

What did not work so well?[edit]

  • Working with heritage companies to donate material about monuments in Uganda. Events were postponed and yet they agreed to work with us . As such we dint hold article creation event

What would you do differently next time?[edit]

Give as much focus to article creation as well as photo competition.
