What we do

Sige is a Moroccan company that has been operating in Morocco for over ten years. Your financial support will enable us to take local action:

Through these actions, we aim to enrich the map for crisis management and future reconstruction stages, while strengthening the skills of young Moroccan geomaticians.

All data produced as part of this project will be free and open-source forever.

We guarantee that all funds raised by Sige as part of this initiative will be used exclusively for mapping the earthquake-damaged areas in the safest and fairest conditions possible.
