We have been running community training in rural Tanzania to get locals to map their own communities with the Maps.me app on their phones. The only problem is – very few people in Tanzania have access to a smartphone.
But you can help
If you have an unused Android phone hidden away in your drawer, you can send it to us. We will freshen it up & donate it to selected community members in rural Tanzania who will use it to put their community on the map and train others.
If you are anywhere in the London area, you could contact Janet directly & deliver your phone this way. We could also collect phones personally in Lithuania & Tanzania, or you can just send it to us from anywhere in the world!
We are also starting a Community Change Agents program very soon, and even with the funding received from the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team, we still need phones more than ever.
