My name is Claire Halleux and I joined OSM in 2009. I worked on mapping projects in various places around the world.
Currently working in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, I also participate to the Référentiel Géographique Commun project.
I am glad to get in touch with anyone interested in building/taking part in an OSM community in DRC. I do regularly organize OSM mapping parties for beginners in Kinshasa. Let us know if you would like to join on our facebook page.
