A busy summer for Crowd2Map

Girls don't want to be sold for cows after FGM

Thanks to your generosity and the hard work of our thousands of volunteers Crowd2Map has a busy ahead.  

First we are working with  people from Heidelberg University to try and incorporate machine learning techniques to develop the map of Tanzania. 

We are also organising mapping and data collection training in many areas of Tanzania throughout August and starting with a session for the council in new area Babati, from funds kindly donated by Salesforce.

Then at the end of August we are running various workshops at the huge global FOSS4G/HOTOSM conference, where Neema the mapping leader and FGM activist from Mara will be delivering a keynote.

We are also launching a pilot FGM reporting system via Ushahidi with support from the UNFPA which we hope will save many girls in the major cutting season expected in December.

So thank you again for your generosity in supporting this project mapping Tanzania to help end FGM.
