How Digital Champions are mapping & protecting communities in Tanzania

Learn about how Digital Champions are mapping their communities in rural Tanzania and helping protect girls from Female Genital Mutilation

You are invited to join the FAWCO Target Team, Tanzania Development Trust, Crowd2Map and Hope for Girls and Women to a session to learn more about the important role of the Digital Champions and mapping of Mara Region, Tanzania.

HGWT, in partnership with Crowd2Map have mapped their communities into OpenStreetMap, to ensure girls can be found quickly, especially in the middle of the night when most calls for urgent help are received, particularly during the “cutting season”. You will also have the opportunity to learn how to use OpenStreetMap, and add roads and buildings from satellite images; the Digital Champions, using this information, add their local knowledge of the area through a smartphone app called Maps.Me.
