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? The fact that it was student week in school, the tension of lectures had reduced drastically and this really helped us to achieve our target.
  • What did not work so well? The online training had issues with connectivity. many students were not used to Google meet. IP blocking was another issue.
  • What would you do differently next time? We ensure we use ZOOM and we make sure students have accounts before the training.
