Part of the Empowering communities using geospatial technology session of TICTeC Show and Tells 2021

Crowd2Map is a volunteer project that has been training community activists to map their communities in rural Tanzania into OpenStreetMap for 5 years.
In January 2019, with Hope for Girls and Women Tanzania, they trained first time smartphone users in all 87 villages of Serengeti District to become digital champions and map their communities to help protect girls from female genital mutilation, as well as to recognise and report Gender Based Violence using a free app.
Two years later this network is going strong and is now mapping access to water and health facilities at a village level, as well as surveying inhabitants’ SDG priorities and visualising them on a village level dashboard to monitor progress over time.
TICTeC supports the mission of the non-profit mySociety by bringing together practitioners, commentators, academics and funders to debate, network, and share research and knowledge in the civic tech field.
