Giving Kids a Crucial Stepping Stone
This project was funded entirely through cryptocurrency donations as a part of Paxful’s #BuiltWithBitcoin initiative, with over $100,000 raised in BTC, BCH, ETH, LTC and DASH to support construction. It is said to be the first primary school in the area that caters to kids between the ages of 6 to 15. The facility contains six classrooms, a cafeteria, bathroom stalls, solar panels and a 35,000-liter water well system. It was completed in partnership with the Zam Zam Water charity and will employ six full-time teachers.
“Having proper education centers is fundamental in moving countries like Rwanda forward, while also increasing their standard of living. Education is the crucial stepping stone in serving people in developing nations improving their quality of life,” said Yusuf A. Nessary, president and founder of Zam Zam Water. “We are beyond thrilled to have partnered with Paxful in order to provide education for (the) next generation and beyond.”
