Community mapping begins this week!

On Tuesday 20th June Janet Chapman, Campaigns Manager for Tanzania Development Trust and Co-founder of Crowd2map with Egle Ramanauskaite from the Human Computation Institute  will be going to Tanzania for a month to kick start our community mapping programme funded by a Humanitarian OpenStreetMap  (HOT) Microgrant. This will allow us to purchase phones and deliver training to 48 village level Community Change Agents every month in 4 areas of Tanzania so that they can map their villages into OpenStreetMap

This will include adding water points, schools, clinics, places of employment and Government offices to enable development in these areas of extreme poverty, and help protect girls from Female Genital Mutilation and Child Marriage. You can follow our progress on Facebook and Twitter .

Thank you so much!
