Chikanda is an informal settlement in Zomba (Malawi), located close to the University of Malawi, Chancellor College. Among other things, the area serves as a place of student accommodation. As a way of giving back to the immediate community around the college, Chanco Malawi YouthMappers chapter has decided to map out the area as a way of highlighting the different social issues i.e. clean water supply, proper sanitation, resilience to floods, health and education. As starting point, the chapter plans to map out the individual buildings and roads in the area.

Please trace all the buildings and roads that you can see on the imagery. Tag each building as simply "building" - as we cannot always be sure of the building use from aerial imagery. Square all buildings. Please avoid mapping buildings that are close together as one building. Please keep building nodes from accidentally joining to each other or to the nearby roads. Tag roads and paths as “unclassified road” following standard scheme found at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Highway_Tag_Africa .
