Progress

I am happy to report that over the past couple of weeks I have been on the ground working as the Mapping Program Manager for JumpStart International in Palestine, the mapping project has grown rapidly. JumpStart currently has six teams mapping in Hebron and two teams mapping in Bethany, with a team leader in each location. JumpStart has continued to receive great enthusiasm for the project and have identified additional organizations to partner with on the mapping initiative, such as Relief International (RI) and other local community-based organizations. RI has computer labs all around the country and a vibrant community of computer savvy volunteers interested in supporting the project.

Last Sunday and Monday I was in Hebron to evaluate and train a group of mapping candidates organized by representatives of the National Council for Development (NCD), a local NGO focusing on job-creation in Hebron. Currently the group in Hebron is using the computer labs at Relief International to edit and upload their data. They have been working full time for the last week and have already collected data for more than 1/3 of the city of Hebron. The district of Hebron (located in the Southern part of West Bank) is the most heavily populated region in West Bank, and It is expected that Hebron should be completed in less than two months.

The teams in Bethany started on Tuesday and have already mapped a large section of the Bethany region (located East of Jerusalem).


Next week is Eid holiday but we hope to get work started in Nablus (located in the north part of the West Bank).

  16. weight loss program you can invest in is one you will participate in, be challenged by and finish. I can name at least a hundred weight loss programs off the top of my head that have produced amazing results for their participants. Conversely, I can assure you that every one of those programs also has people who purchased, then barely participated, quit and spent hard-earned money for no results whatsoever. Ultimately the results you get begin and end
