Filipino YouthMappers’ Growth in 2021
Before the pandemic happened, four chapters were established in the Philippines (Junior Philippines Computer Society in Far Eastern University – Institute of Technology, UP Resilience Institute Youth Mappers, FEU Alabang ACM Student Chapter in FEU Alabang, and Junior Philippine Computer Society National University Chapter.).
UPRI YouthMappers’ co-founder and YouthMappers Regional Ambassador Feye Andal helped increase and balance the distribution of chapters, extend the network of YouthMappers across the Philippine Islands, and build a community of mappers in the least-mapped areas in OSM. As the distribution of the local chapters is mainly in Metro Manila, she focused on recruiting the Visayas and Mindanao-based universities, as we need more visibility and reach in these areas.
