I'm honored of nominating Msilikale  Msilanga as OSGeo Charter Member.
He is consulting the World Bank on Transportation and ICT by collecting in Tanzania geospatial information on transportation,  education, and public facilities and by training the government on Open Data. He has a huge experience in community based projects (using FOSS) for flooding resilience in informal settlements. 
He has been working with the local community since 2011 helping them to understand how to use the mapping equipment for collaborative projects.  
After the experience in Tanzania, he also helped the creation of the first community mapping in Mozambique. 
Moreover, Msilikale is one of the two chairs of FOSS4G 2018 in Dar Er Salaam. I believe that his experience on collaborative mapping is fundamental for our OSGeo Community.
Many thanks and best regards,
