HOT 2020 Microgrant
The OpenStreetMap Community was selected to be beneficiaries for the 2020 Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team Micro grant
The project is to sustainably revive and expand the community in order to make it capable of executing sustainable development projects.
In a bid to revive our community we conducted training for our existing YouthMappers chapters that were considered to be dormant. We revived them and reestablished them with executives.
We established new YouthMappers chapters and trained non YouthMappers to expand our community and ensure inclusion.
After giving all our participants the prerequisite training, we embarked on mini projects such as mapping health facilities and bus stops in order to utilize the skills for social benefits.
The goals of this project include the procurement of computers, internet gadgets, training of existing and new youth mappers and secure an MOU for a permanent space to conduct Mapathons and other training activities
