Help HOT give 10 communities the resources to map!

Tyler Radford
Dear HOT community,

Today, on behalf of the HOT Fundraising Working Group, I'm excited to announce our 2016  campaign #mapthedifference.

This year's campaign is about coming together to raise funds for a micro-grants initiative. Micro-grants will support small but highly impactful projects carried out by HOT/OSM community leaders. More details on the application and selection process will be announced in early 2017, but until then, please check out the video below and help us #mapthedifference!

Tyler



Help HOT provide 10 communities with equipment and funding to map


Many of the world's most vulnerable places do not exist on any map. Meet 12 leaders who are working to change that by putting their communities on the global map for the first time.

You can show your support by starting your own Fundraising Page using the button below or making a donation today.

We have 33 days to raise $30,000 in support of this
life-changing work in 10 communities.

Re: Help HOT give 10 communities the resources to map!

Let us figure out what is happening here:

HOT US Inc starts a micro-grant program supposedly to support 10 local OSM communities worldwide by raising money. Some of them being already HOT-Sponsored through grants, others being totally autonomous from HOT US Inc. Looks great. Micro-grants are not HOT US Inc speciality as it has been refusing from 2013 to deal with projects under 10,000 USD grants, what may explain why it is not clear at all how the money from these smaller grants will be used: who decides how to split, if the 10 communities will all receive a tenth of it or if it is related to their requirements (if only HOT US Inc took the time to ask them), if the communities will receive all the money in cash or if HOT US Inc will proceed to purchases, etc. OK, it is totally unclear/unexplained, but damn let us donate, this a good cause!

But if you read the explanation text you can read this: “When donating, you have the choice of where your funds go: to micro-grants or where they're needed most to support HOT's critical work and technology”. What? The first time this 1 million dollar organization (according to https://hotosm.org/sites/default/files/HOT_2015_Annual_Report.pdf) raises money specifically for far less funded local OSM communities, it really needs to suggest to take money from them?

I don’t know if HOT US Inc needs fund-raising again to fix a new unexpected, mismanaged 100,000+ USD financial hole like last year without explaining it to the donors (or even its voting members) forgetting that the O of HOT is for Open, but this is certainly not the right way to do it here.

Even better, all the people participating in the video have been automatically called “HOT community leaders”. Ladies and gents, you belong to the HOT US Inc brand now, just because you showed up in the video. From my long experience with HOT US Inc, I can tell you that this wording will be next used in every, every grant HOT US Inc will try to get in the future, emphasizing this community support in its storytelling. In short, for the 1 USD you may get from HOT US Inc through this micro-grants program, aside from the 1 USD it will directly keep, HOT US Inc will multiply this in the future for its very own use.

Do not be surprised, this is not the first time HOT US Inc takes over the work from others. For the last two years or so, everyone using the HOT US Inc Tasking Manager instance becomes instantaneously a “HOT volunteer”, even if she or he does not even know what HOT is, and included in HOT US Inc statistics. People contributing in OSM with the iD editor are not “MapBox volunteers”, as long as I know. Nor book authors using Microsoft Word to draft their new work are “MS writers”. A basic OpenStreetMap rule that the HOT US Inc Board should read and think about during one of their (non public - always) meetings: respect attribution.

OSM local communities, HOT US Inc needs you to get money from you. But you do not need HOT US Inc to get money to grow your activities. Rather than having ten seconds in this video, build your own fund-raising, take time to present your community, its history, achievements and goals and describe precisely what you need and want to get. You will likely get more funds and nobody will make financial profit from you.


Sincerely,

Severin

Re: Help HOT give 10 communities the resources to map!

john whelan-2

One of the problems with giving aid is only about a tenth of the money given is used in the way one would hope.

Probably the most pressing problem in Africa at the moment is corruption and in many ways aid doesn't help this particular problem.

Mapping in OSM is way to assist without fear that the funds will be diverted.

Money given by government agencies stands a little more chance that the aid will get through although there is always the temptation to say it must be shipped on ships from the donor country or must be spent on goods from the donor country.

Given that HOT Inc exists in the US and given the USA culture, who else could elect Donald, I think we can expect them to present themselves in this manner.

Whilst I would hope that requirements and benefits can be presented I'm not sure that this is in the US tradition.  Given the attention span of the target audience again is it worth the effort to HOT Inc?  Should the message have been restricted to those with a US address?

If I'm cynical then the task manager has been very effective.  The training group has identified problem areas and come up with solutions. However HOT is not just HOT Inc there are many people involved in creating maps and the tools used.  Germany is home to many of them.   The OSM wiki contains much wisdom, the page I'm thinking of was put together by a Canadian, well a Québécois which is practically the same.

I'd like to see two slots on the most urgent slots in tasks reserved for projects that are run by OSM groups in affected areas to give some sort of recognition to the work they are doing.  If nothing else they're learning project management skills that they can apply elsewhere.

In sum HOT Inc probably deserves some support but on transparency I think it could do better.

Hey all, please dampen down the conspiracy theories, personal bitterness and politics. There are ways to ask questions with out being damning, and to share perspectives without lowering ourselves to populist rhetoric and smearing. Let’s try better. The etiquette page on the wiki is a good read to get our conversations on the right footing http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Etiquette. 
Thanks -Mikel

Help HOT give 10 communities the resources to map!

Tyler Radford
Dear all,
Over the last 2 years, led by several Boards of Directors, HOT has developed a concept for our new micro-grants program that is the key focus of this year's campaign  http://donate.hotosm.org. We're thrilled with the outpouring of support for local OSM communities in only the first four days of the campaign.

We're very happy to answer questions as part of a positive and constructive discussion. My virtual door is always open and anyone in the OSM community is welcome to ask questions on the list or send me a personal note at <a href="javascript:_e(%7B%7D,&#39;cvml&#39;,&#39;tyler.radford@hotosm.org&#39;);" target="_blank">tyler.radford@.... Like any new initiative, we don't have all the answers, and are still working out some details, but one point is clear: donors who give to the campaign may choose that 100% of their contribution goes directly to fund micro-grants to OSM communities.

We'll publish a blog post on our website next week to provide some additional details on the concept for the program. In the meantime, if you'd like us to address a particular point, just let me know so we can include it as part of the blog post.

Discussions of stereotypes of nationalities are not constructive and hurtful to many of us that are in this together as part of the OSM ecosystem.

Information and financials on HOT are openly available at http://www.guidestar.org/profile/27-3166713 HOT financials are prepared annually by an independent external accounting firm. After an internal financial audit last year which accounted for all funding, we also improved the structure of our accounts to conform to nonprofit industry standards (UCOA).

Warmly,
Tyler
