Dear Delphine and Florence,

Our HOT project in Tanzania is running a collaborative Mapathon with UNFPA,
involving the Sectretariat, and I wondered if you would like to be
involved, here in Uganda. The Tanzanian project is focused on FGM and SGBV.
Our intrepid community surveyors feed back considerable evidence of SGBV in
the areas we have been working in (Arua, Yumbe and Hoima). We map relevant
key geospatial indicators there. Being part of those communities, our
people are always aware of the protection issues on the ground in Refugee
and Host communities themselves.

We are able to run a Mapathon event in Kampala, in which we could introduce
people to contributions which can be made from afar. HERE
is a video of, broadly, how it works.

is a sample of those interactive maps, this one showing distances from
villages to schools in Arua, and here is a map of WASHPOINTS WITHOUT
LIGHTING <http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/BMH> throughout Arua and Yumbe
districts (excluding BidiBidi). The yellow points show 'Lit WASH Points'.

Please pass this on to anybody interested.

Best wishes,

*Rupert Allan*
