- The contribution for this project was equal in the team, we were working together all the time and helping with the information each one managed better, for example if someone needed the other one to upload a work to the web page, the other classmate helped her. We collected all the ideas of the work together so we could focus in one main idea and criteria.
The sources talked about the same subjects but describing them from different perspectives, if we analyze well all of them we can see that they all drive you to the same conclusions that are about the same main topic, the reality that is lived in Africa.
