Dear everyone,

This is a joint initiative of OSM-Ph, OSM-Id, HOT and ESSC.
The objective of this sprint is to develop a trainors training manual
by consolidating existing materials and experiences from previous
OSM training activities in the Philippines and Indonesia.

We intend to run a test of the developed materials to local partners
in the Ph on June 10-13.
