Missing Maps resources for schools

Missing Maps is an exciting project where students can directly contribute to the humanitarian work of Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF).

The following presentation will help you teach students how to map: 

The accompanying instruction document is designed to help students learn to map: 

We have provided this guide for teachers with helpful tips on successfully getting students mapping: 

We need maps every day to get to patients, to assess the needs of crisis-hit communities, to track disease spread and to respond to local events, but many of the areas in which we work have never been mapped. 

Giving your time to Missing Maps covers the volunteering commitment for schemes such as Duke of Edinburgh and could provide leadership opportunities for those organising a club. 

You can map independently but be sure to keep a record of your hours. 

Your mapping is checked by experts and will be used by our medical teams on the ground. It makes a real difference to getting aid to those in vulnerable areas. Thank you for your commitment to this.
