A blockchain startup has come up with the unique idea of helping African children gain access to education, food and healthcare. KryptoPal a blockchain platform, that can allow different application perform various cryptocurrency transactions and integrate to the platform. KryptoPal is partnering with a Swiss non-governmental organization, Help2kids to help children in Africa.
Help2kids has the objective of providing basic amenities to children who are vulnerable in countries like Tanzania and Malawi. The organisation already had several projects of various degrees in operation in Lifuwu, a small village in Malawi and in Tanzania’s largest city, Dar es Salaam. The partnership is creating an opportunity to fuse charity and the blockchain technology. KryptoPal will set up a public key and obtain know your customer (KYC) information for each Help2kids project as well as integrate its software development kit (SDK) into Help2kid’s website. This will enable the charity accept donations in cryptocurrency.
Help2kids already has a project in Malawi, where they provide support to a government primary school, a nursery and day care program, and a medical center. They also teach adults in Tanzania English classes, run a children’s home and a nursery/primary school.
Venkat Nallapati, Founder and CEO of KryptoPal explains, “We’re very excited about this year-long pilot program that we will be conducting with help2kids because not only will it enable people across the world to donate and improve the lives of children in Africa, but by also using cryptocurrency the flow of the financial transactions is transparent until the actual usage of the funds on site in Africa.” He further explained their goals, “We hope to offer Help2kids a framework to accept cryptocurrencies that will pave the way for other large international charities to follow.”
The partnership is providing ease into charities. Harriet Smith, an on-the-ground Field Manager for Help2kids in Dar es Salaam explains, “Every child should have a fair opportunity to education and we want them to focus on learning without facing obstacles like hunger and illness.”
