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? All the expected targets were achieved. The Wikimedia Community Arusha is gaining attention from lots of people in the city and they want to join to learn and contribute to the Wikimedia Movement. More editors are becoming competent and are willing to help new volunteers.
  • What did not work so well? More participants wanted to attend but there was a limit of the number.
  • What would you do differently next time? We are working on a plan to engage more people. This plan involves having a blended mode of events to let more editors to participate. The blended mode will allow editors to participate both online and in person.
