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?
  1. Activeness of article writers
  2. Interactive learning during online trainings
  • What did not work so well?
  1. Lack of Categories in Swahili Wikipedia for some of the topics
  2. Lack of Swahili infobox to reflect similar article structure as it is seen in English Wikipedia
  • What would you do differently next time?
