Please report on your original project targets. Please be sure to review and provide metrics required for Rapid Grants.

Target outcome Achieved outcome Explanation
Number of participants - 35 Number of participants - 64 The initial project target was smaller than the achieved outcome this was due to the fact that we had to encourage more new volunteers to participate with mentorship from the experienced community members. This allowed us to have an 85% increase of the original target. We will be implementing the same strategy in all the upcoming projects.
Number of new editors - 10 Number of new editors - 21 We surpassed the original target by an increase of 110% from the original target. This is the result of the strategy we implemented in this project.
Number of of articles created or improved - 50+ Number of of articles created or improved - 1.44K Due to an increase in the number of participants we achieved a great outcome on the number of article created and improved.
Number of repeat participants (for projects that include a series of events)- 20+ Number of repeat participants (for projects that include a series of events) -30+ We had more people attending more than one event that we organized.


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? We achieved all the targeted goals for the project. We learnt on new ways that we can engage more new volunteers to the community.
  • What did not work so well? Everything worked fine
  • What would you do differently next time? We will have more regular community discussions as they are so enlightening and provide for a room for the community growth. We experienced new ideas about the programs and projects that we can work on as a community.
