Mapper since: February 10, 2009
I an interested in OSM map editing as I am currently working for the Climate Connected Benefit Society (CCBS) as Director, Technology and Operations with particular responsibility for the Educating Reena Project in Malawi.
The Educating Reena Project is developing a distance learning program for young girls to continue their secondary education in rural areas of south Malawi where they face difficulty in attending schools that are either too far to walk to or can be too dangerous due to climatatic aberrations e.g. frequency of floods.
We need assistance to develop a core volunteer mapping team for the pilot project areas that suffer from annual flooding. We need volunteers to help us define flood safe areas where we can build local ‘Study Huts’ to help reduce risks for school children. For further information see - www.educatingreena.org.
