Details
Mission and objectives
Tanzania Development Trust has been working with grassroots
organisations in the poorest areas of Tanzania for 40 years. We are all
volunteers and so every pound donated goes directly to projects. TDT was
founded as a Charitable Trust in 1975 by the Britain Tanzania Society
(BTS). BTS remains our parent body and pays the small administrative
costs of TDT. Thatā€™s why we can promise that every pound donated is
spent on projects. The people who run TDT and BTS are all volunteers who
know the country well. No salaries are paid. We have no offices. When
we visit projects we all pay our own expenses. Project requests come
from Tanzania via our website, from visits, by word of mouth, through
the BTS branch in Dar es Salaam or from NGOs in the UK. Applications are
carefully checked. We ask for full estimates from contractors. We get
clear evidence of community participation and approval from local
Government officials. The system is designed to be as transparent as
possible. In over 30 years we have had almost no loss by fraud or theft.
We have built a safe house for girls refusing FGM and supported over
100 projects including bore holes for villages without water, school
resources and solar panels for dispensaries

Certificate is issued after volunteers’ fulfill the required mapping
duties. Volunteers contribute to the team’s efforts and learn useful
skills.

Task description
The online mapping 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 areas where girls are 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.
