Make sure to write content that answers the following questions:

  • Why did you choose to develop a program in this particular program area?
  • What opportunity allowed for program, activity or partnership to happen? Did it require additional resources for your volunteer community, such as funding or an employee at a partner institution, to get started?
  • Why did the partners or allies think that working with a Wikimedia Community would be a good opportunity?
  • What experience did your community have before that made this project exciting or a reasonable next step?


  • What did you intend to be the impact for this project?
  • What did your partner, collaborators or engaged community intend for the project?
  • How did you plan to measure or evaluate that impact?
  • How did your goals change the design of the project?


  • What was each step for the project? For each step:
    • Who was involved?
    • What tools did you use?
    • Did you create or refer to documentation? (include both English and non-English documentation)


Some questions that might help you write this section:

  • Did you meet your goals?
  • Did the data you collected help you to evaluate whether or not you met your goals?
  • Do you have any statistics or evidence of your impact?
  • What un-measurable or hard-to-measure outcomes happened as a result of the project?

Reflection and lessons learned[edit]

  • What challenges did you anticipate and how did you plan to overcome them? Did your plan work?
  • Did any challenges come up that you did not expect? How did you troubleshoot?
  • What would you do differently next time? What advice would you give to someone looking to do a similar project?
