Presentations at virtual State of the Map

Talk at State of the Map conference
Talk at State of the Map conference

State of the Map is the annual conference of the OpenStreetMap global community.  This year it was scheduled to be in Cape Town and we were looking forward to presenting our work on fighting FGM with maps and on building a mapping community in Tanzania.  

However, with the COVID pandemic the conference was moved online and so we presented virtually, which did mean that many more mappers from Tanzania and beyond were able to participate.  You can see our talks here and the rest of the programme here.

It is difficult to know exactly what is happening with the pandemic as the government has not released any figures since the end of May.  Schools reopened at the end of June and some of the girls have started returning to their villages from the Safe Houses.

Rhobi has also started training mappers in Butiama district, and they and the digital champions in Serengeti will be participating in research with Nottingham University around the effectiveness of different interventions against FGM.

We are also planning virtual training for a new Youthmapper chapter in Mwanza soon.

Thank you for your generosity in supporting this project!
