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? Everything worked well.
  • What did not work so well? Funding was not enough because of the high cost of living in the country.
  • What would you do differently next time?

I would like to organize a competition for my students after training and give gift items to the Winners to encourage them to contribute more to the Wikimedia projects.
