About Global MapAid
14 Offerton Rd, Cheshire, Hazelgrove, Cheshire SK7 4NJ, GB
We have a passion and vision to inspire and support long-term sustainable development by mapping the gaps in self-empowering opportunities for people at the ground level, so that international donors, development NGOs and government agencies can clearly see where they need to put their energies.
Since Global MapAid began in 2003, sustainable development has been the central theme of our projects; we tackle youth unemployment to irrigation and air pollution so we certainly don’t lack scope or ambition.
- The introduction of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015 has provided a framework in which to organize 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.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
