Mapper (Tanzania Development Trust)

Through this United Nations volunteering opportunity, I was working with other volunteers to map villages, roads and buildings in rural Tanzania to protect girls from female genital mutilation (using OpenStreetMap software). This mapping helps on-site workers navigate the environment and get access to remote areas to reach out to more girls in danger.
