Thank you from Assetmap.org/Uganda

From the Assetmap.org/Uganda team,

Thanks EVERYONE who supported the Assetmap.org/Uganda project. It was inspiring for us to see the number of people who were excited about tools that would let them support community-led development efforts in this remarkable region. With your support, we were among the top 20 vote getters and will head to California to compete for $100,000 in grants and prizes this may.

While experienced practitioners have long-known that the most impacting, sustainable development efforts are those led by local communities, its only been in the last few years that average citizens around the world have begun to have the resources they need to support these efforts. We believe with your support, Assetmap.org/Uganda can provide a vital toolset to support post-conflict rebuilding in Uganda.

But we need your help! This tool is about collaboration and average citizens supporting development around the world. What information do you need to make decisions about collaborations, volunteering, or philanthropic giving? What type of data factors into how you support development efforts around the world. We have our instincts and some research, but we want to hear from YOU.

If you’re interested in any of these issues, please take a few minutes to fill out this survey:

Thanks again, and please email us at assetmapuganda@gmail.com for more information or to get involved.

Best wishes,

Nathaniel Whittemore and Assetmap.org/Uganda team
