Its been a very exciting summer for Crowd2Map!
In July we were awarded the best Africa mapping project at the global State of the Map in Milan.
In August we gave a very well received key note at the global FOSS4G in Dar es Salaam, as well as another presentation and 2 workshops. The conference was so impressed with our work that they decided to give the conference surplus of $15,000 to us to continue promoting mapping groups in rural Tanzania.
And now in September we have been invited to organise a mapathon at the United Nations General Assembly to demonstrate how mapping can help in the fight against FGM. To coincide with this we are also organising a global online mapathon, details here. We hope to build a global network to unite people from across the world to help map areas where girls are at risk of FGM so that activists can better protect them. Please promote in your networks and join us! Together we can #map2endFGM
