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? More people from the Arusha community became aware of the Wikimedia Movement and were willing to participate in the project. Also the existing editors were happy to help the new editors making the project a success.
  • What did not work so well? The expected number of participants was minimal compared to the actual turn-up number.
  • What would you do differently next time?

I will put more expectations on the number of the people in order to well budget for the project
