African Republic, Burundi and Kenya) for 6 months, starting mid October.
During these missions, HOT will support the volunteers in accomplishing the
training, mapping and outreach activities planned for each country during
the months of preparation, involving the EUROSHA local partner organization
as well as local and international humanitarian organizations, local
government institutions, and local tech or social communities.

experience in project management and thorough expertise in  JOSM, GPS, QGIS
and other open source GIS tools as well as a commitment to continue
supporting the mapping project that would have been set up throughout the
