Did you meet your goals? Are you happy with how the project went?

Yes, participation in the training increased as a result of publicity and awareness made in each departments witihin the academic community . In addition, we sent weekly updates about the campaign on the fan club whatsapp page. Before the physical training commenced, we followed up with each participant to ensure they arrived at the venue on time and had created their accounts, user pages, and join the event dashboard ahead of the physical training session. We also engaged the participants in series of online trainings on how to contribute before the physical training which made us record alo of contribut ttthe campaign.

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? We were granted full access to the site of monuments and as such were able to snap quite a good number of pictures.
  • What did not work so well? We had challenges locating the Crushed Rock in Sango as there were very little information about the rock online.Moreso, the location was not covered on google map or open street map.
  • What would you do differently next time? We will carry out feasibility studies for the monuments before choosing it .
