Putting rural Tanzania on the map
1 March 2016

Ever been frustrated that villages in rural Tanzania don't appear on the map?  Crowd2Map aims to solve that. We've recruited volunteers on the ground with a free smartphone app uploading GPS data of points of interest.  The data we've collected so far is here.  It's all going onto this map.  You can help by publicising this with anyone you know in rural Tanzania and asking them to get involved; by contributing to the cost of providing cheap smart phones to those who don't have them, and by coming to our 3 way mapping party in Dar, London and Vilnius on Saturday May 7th.

THINKING OF APPLYING FOR A GRANT?

CLICK HERE for our funding guidelines

  • TDT is open to receive applications for assistance with projects in those regions in Tanzania where we work with project partners.
  • First download the Funding Guidelines and look especially at Point F. If your project is not in one of the regions mentioned, please don’t waste your time and ours by applying.
  • If your project is in one of the new regions e.g. Simiyu, send an enquiry email first before sending an application.
  • Read all the Guidelines carefully to see if your project fits the Guidelines before downloading and completing the application form.
  • You can always send an email to check before spending a lot of time on the Application Form and getting the other necessary documents
  • Finally send the Application Form (in English) and other supporting documents (also in English) to applications @tanzdevtrust.org.
  • Do NOT send copies to TDT Project Officers and Local Representatives. This wastes your time and that of our volunteers and lowers your chance of success.
  • Remember TDT gets many more applications than it gives grants. THERE IS NO PROMISE THAT TDT WILL GIVE YOUR ORGANISATION A GRANT. Hata hivyo mtu ambaye kamwe anajaribu pia kamwe inafanikiwa!
