Our passion and focus is to inspire and support small farming in Africa, as this activity provides the most employment and is the best option for food security and peace on that continent. The betterment of African farming also has implications for transboundary migration.
We therefore make maps and visuals about small African farming that can support international donors, development NGOs and government agencies, to enable them to know and see more effectively, where to make use of their finite energies.
MapAid has a rich history of mapping various other human development activities, which eventually led us to discover and then choose today’s focus.
The introduction of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015 has provided a framework in which to organise our projects and our resources, and our volunteers work hard to create innovative solutions to a broad range of problems, with mapping at the core.
