Please map in all roads, rivers and residential landuse in the area using Bing imagery.
Map roads (dirt roads) and smaller paths for as far as you can follow them. Tag roads according to the Highway Tag Africa wiki page. Most roads connecting villages should either be unclassified or tertiary with only occasional small clusters of isolated houses being connected to the road network by a path (only use path if it would be too small to even drive a 4x4 vehicle on).
Also trace landuse=residential around clusters of houses. Another common and useful feature to tag is school areas, easily identified as 1 or 2 long builidngs at the edge of the village, sometimes with two small toilet buildings behind them. The schools are almost always accompanied by a large open area for the children to play in, tag the whole area of the school complex with amenity=school and trace the school buildings and bathrooms. Please also trace any other "big" noticeable building (don’t worry about the small or average-sized buildings in the rest of the town for now).
Note that for some areas, high resolution imagery is not currently available. In these areas, do your best. We will revise the mapping of these areas when new imagery/field data is available.
