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?
  • What did not work so well?
  • What would you do differently next time?

the implementation of the project worked well in the assembly, it was the first time for many to hear about wikipedia. And were delighted to find out. This is the problem of source that we are very tired because in Africa there are not enough books or documentary films to source articles. We are always looking for the solution so that our articles can be accepted on wikipedia
