We the members of OpenStreetMap Gambia, are conscious of the challenges facing our country and their impact on the economic, social, and infrastructural development of Gambia. Mindful of the fact that Gambians need to increase their support, participation, and sustainability of their Nation’s building and National development.

Convinced that the responsibility for overall development in Africa rests with Africans especially starting with the young people. Emphasizing that it is timely and imperative to launch an effective Non-partisan, Autonomous, Open, and Non-Governmental Organization to facilitate the process of promoting these values in our country, and the whole world.

Affirm our will to work tirelessly in solidarity with other progressive organizations in any country in the world to activate; community, social, and economic responsibility among Africans, do firmly and solemnly resolve to provide for ourselves a constitution of the named Non-profit and non-political organization, and be governed by the provisions therein.
