Description

We're delighted the next HOT Community Webinar will feature Janet Chapman from Crowd2Map.


Crowd2Map is a volunteer run mapping project that has been mapping rural Tanzania since 2015, particularly to help protect girls from Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). Since then, Crowd2Map have recruited over 1,300 online volunteers and 200 local mappers, and mapped over 1.1 million buildings and 64,000 km of roads and tracks. This has all been done on zero budget. Better maps in Serengeti have helped the number of girls being cut drop from 3700 last year to 1076 this, and the number of girls dying from 12 to 4.


This year, Crowd2Map are also very excited to be awarded a HOT Microgrant, which they are using to train village level Community Change Agents in 4 different areas of rural Tanzania. During the webinar, Janet will share the planning for this project, the barriers and enablers we have identified so far, and seek advice from the HOT community.


This event will be held online. Dial in details will be emailed to attendees ahead of time.
