Amazing work, guys!

We're starting to also get a lot of interest from schools in Missing Maps
stuff. Be great to chat about how you've done it as it looks as if you're
way ahead on this....

Will pitch in for a shift tomorrow, too.

> These students have already had introductory sessions using the LearnOsm

> The Mapathon kicks off at 08.00 GMT Friday and runs until 0800 GMT
> Saturday. Big cheers using the #MapLesotho hashtag as they begin and end
> their work validating on http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/1169#. Can you
