Whenever possible, we try to build awareness of our work and FGM, with the support of the press around the world. If you’re interested in writing an article about Crowd2Map, or if you’re running an event and need support with a press release, please contact j.chapman@tanzdevtrust.org

Below are some of the articles that have featured the work of Crowd2Map Tanzania.
