Tanzania Development Trust: Simiyu district mapping project (part 1)

Project Goal

Simiyu district in eastern Tanzania has a high incidence of Female Genital Mutilation, early marriage, and Gender Based Violence. NGOs on the ground need better road and residential area data to facilitate their outreach work. We need to complete this map by the end of November so we can print out paper maps ready for the next “FGM cutting season” in December.

My Contribution

As a volunteer, my job is to digitize roads, buildings and the residential areas of Simiyu district.
