Background and objectives
The online volunteers will liaise with volunteers in Tanzania and worldwide and add data to openstreetmap, buildings. This will allow better delivery and monitoring of services, and improved navigation and visibility. We are currently concentrating on the area around Mugumu, Serengeti to help protect girls at risk of Female Genital Mutilation. This is a flexible, ongoing project which can be done at any time to fit in with volunteers schedules
Other information and telecommunications technology experience
We work with grassroots communities that do not feature on maps. The open source map developed will be open to everyone and help better planning of services. Produce better maps for the good of all. Teach Tanzanian citizens how to map their communities.
Volunteers: 25 needed
1-5 hours per week / 18 weeks
Volunteers will need basic IT skills and an internet connection. Full training will be given.

Most organizations find the volunteers they need within just a few days and close the opportunities to more applications. So if you see a project that interests you, apply right away and make sure that you show the organization that you have the right skills and motivation for the task!

Online volunteering is rewarding and empowering, but it’s also a serious commitment. When you are chosen for an assignment, the organization is counting on you to complete it.

Our online volunteer community is made up of bright, dynamic, committed individuals who enjoy bringing out the best in each other and in the organizations they serve. We expect all volunteers to maintain high standards of behaviour, and to refrain from any activity that could be detrimental to the assignment, the organization, other volunteers, or to UNV.
