I'm Astou Nathalie SIDIBE, a Human Ressources Manager, Social Activist, committed to Communities building, volunteer and humanitarian activities for a long time, in Mali.
I got involved in OpenstreetMap Project in December 2014 after two weeks of OpenStreetMap and GIS training with the Projet Espace OpenStreetMap Francophone, ProjetEOF in Bamako, then i cofounded OpenStreetMap Mali and advocate for OpenStreetMap and OpenData projects with a volunteer group in Mali.
So, since January 2015, i’ve been planning and organizing mapping parties, MappingCamps in Mali, cofacilitating OSM trainings in Mali and in West Africa with the support of the ProjetEOF.
I'm personnally involved in developing partnership with Public and Private Administrations, Universities, High Schools, local and International Organizations and NGO.
I'm currently leading, with the technical support of Les Libres Geographes, a mapping project on Organizations working in the Digital fields. This project, called CarteInnov, is initiated and financed by the Organisation International de la Francophonie in 14 African countries including Mali.
