Mapper since: October 11, 2015 | Contributor terms: Accepted over 1 year ago

Living in Fort Portal Uganda. I am a Belgian by nationality but married with a Ugandan and living with my family in Uganda since 4 years now. Ona daily basis confronted with the lack of good maps of Uganda I joined Openstreetmap to implement a huge amount of data collected over the past years, with the only purpose of making it available to Ugandans and the larger community in general. Too much data about Uganda and East Africa is scattered or just "in the minds" of locals, who mostly lack the resources or the skills to implement them. As maps and their applications can improve the livelihoods of people and the countries in general, I found a purpose to contribute, mapping Uganda and East Africa so the information is available and useful to all, for free. Please join since we need many more contributors for this region.
