Have you achieved your goals? Are you satisfied with the progress of the project?
We achieved the goals we set for ourselves, so we are very satisfied with the work accomplished but we hardly wrote an article because we are new contributors and we do not master the mechanism and the technicality of Wikipedia. the most important for us was to already have volunteers to constitute our small community of Malian Wikimedian contributors
Please report on your original project objectives.
yes, our objectives have been achieved. the 15 young malians were trained and opened their accounts on wikipedia and with the wiki gap project of the swedish embassy in Mali, each malian contributor was able to contribute. but not mastering Wikipedia, our articles have been deleted
Projects don't always go as planned. Sharing what you have 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 has worked well? What has not worked so well? What would you do differently next time?
the implementation of the project worked well in the assembly, it was the first time that many heard of wikipedia. And were delighted to find out. It is the problem of the source that has tired us a lot because in Africa there are not enough books or documentary films to get articles. We are still looking for the solution so that our articles can be accepted on wikipedia it was also our first experience writing articles on wikipedia but we learned a lot
