The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) generously supports this program through a grant from the U.S. Global Development Lab’s GeoCenter.

The program seeks to not just build maps, but to build mappers, supporting universities and colleges to offer meaningful global learning experiences; create geospatial data where it is needed most; build a socially engaged citizenry; enhance long-term scientific capacity throughout the world; and foster youth exchange and leadership. New Member Chapters of students are still being formed and are welcome to join the network.
