Anything else


Anything else you want to share about your project? It was a good activity that was shared online. The 5 shortlisted winners received their cash prizes and were happy. This was also shared on the platform. People were inspired. Thus, the network noted that the members need more training, that is the new reason we feel that meet up is needed to explain some basics and re-strategize for more results
