The online volunteers will liaise with volunteers in Tanzania and worldwide and add data to openstreetmap, buildings. This will allow better delivery and monitoring of services, and improved navigation and visibility. We are currently concentrating on the area around Mugumu, Serengeti to help protect girls at risk of Female Genital Mutilation. This is a flexible, ongoing project which can be done at any time to fit in with volunteers schedules.

We work with grassroots communities that do not feature on maps. The open source map developed will be open to everyone and help better planning of services and help FGM activists better find and rescue girls at risk. Produce better maps for the good of all. Teach Tanzanian citizens how to map their communities.
Volunteers: 25 needed
1-5 hours per week / 18 weeks
