I am Campaigns Manager for Tanzania Development Trust. In February 2016 our Crowd2Map Tanzania project was one of the 7 projects selected in the Open Seventeen challenge, which rallies the public to use open data as a means of achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals as proposed but the UN in September 2015! As part of the project we organized a triple mapping day in Dar+London+Vilnius on May 7th. We have set up a HOT task 1788 to map the area around Mugumu where girls are particularly at risk from FGM. We are promoting Maps.Me to name villages and points on the ground. I spoke at SOTM in September 2016 about this project and my sllides are here http://bit.ly/FGMSOTM

We welcome any help and advice on how best to get rural Tanzania on the map.. Thanks Janet Twitter @Crowd2Map @jachapman82
