From 19th to 21st of November 2021, I attended the most mind blowing event, #State of the Map Africa 2021#. It was really an insightful event for me that did not only advance my mapping skills, but also the presentations and experiences that were shared through out the event encouraged me to continuously support communities by actively participating in mapping activities. I was impressed to learn about the number of approaches that can be adopted in growing the OSM community namely: Mapathons, workshops, webinars, training rural communities that do not have access to digital mobile devices, applying for micro grants as well as attending conferences, so as to also contribute in addressing most of the problems that are affecting more vulnerable communities today.
