Teachers play a major role in the development of every country. But unfortunately, in Ghana teachers are among the least paid. Most teachers received as low as ₵800.00 ($181.82) every month and a pension gratuity of less than ₵20,000.00 ($4,545.45). Ghana has a total population of 26million with 378,242 public sector teachers. Teachers for liberty and Innovative Teachers seeks to organize a workshop to educate and practically train teachers to adopt Smartcash as a means of exchange instead of depending on the weak cedis which is controlled by the state. The workshop would also focused on teachers finding other source of livelihood by trading in digital currencies and imparting these new ideas on their students so that the students will not depend on government for jobs after school. We would train 400 Ghanaian teachers (40 per location) from five (5) selected District/Municipal/Metropolitan on to trade using cryptocurrencies with emphasis on SMARTCASH to accumulate wealth and nurture their students in a digital currency era. This would help to expand the frontiers of SMARTCASH in Ghana and Africa as whole.
