#199 SMARTCASH FOR LADIES

By Momako

Summary

Hello community, my name is Mohammed Mashud Kofi, known in the Smartcash community as Momako. Women and ladies are an integral component of our communities. They are indispensable in nation building and economic growth. No nation can thrive devoid of women. Women have a lot of influence and as such I am proposing SMART CASH FOR LADIES. This project focuses on unearthing innovative and doable ideas from female Ghanaians in our contemporary society. The aim is to organize conferences in three (3) prime regions of Ghana. That is the Greater Accra Region, the Western Region and the Central Region. These training programs is solely for ladies and it’s anticipated at training 200 ladies and young women in each of the three (3) regions. The conference and training programs shall be opened to all Ladies from various facets of the Ghanaian economy; Female Directors, Female Politicians, Female CEO’s, Female Bankers, Female Teachers, and Female Tertiary Students. Etc. The project will see one meetup and a booth camp, a 15 minutes TV discussion and a 20 minutes radio discussion. The media discussions will be heard by not less than 50,000 people. This is because the selected media houses in each region are the most prime, popular and most listened to media houses in the various regions. These media houses have also been ranked best on several platforms. The media houses are; TV 3’s (New Day Show) (www.tv3network.com), Joy FM (www.myjoyonline.com) in the Greater Accra Region, Eastern FM (www.easternfm.com) in the Eastern Region of Ghana and Twin City Radio(https://twincityradio.com) in the Western Region of Ghana. Even though the target group of the training programs is ladies, the media discussions will be heard by both males and females. Listeners would be allowed to ask questions through phone in after presentations, Smartcash tokens will be given to listeners who phone in to answer questions during the radio and TV discussions. The reason behind this project is to use this powerful tool of women to promote Smartcash for massive adoption and usage in Ghana.

Description

 

Sub Saharan Africa where Ghana forms part is the poorest in the world. Poverty in this part of the world keeps increasing at a scaring rate. This has formed part of many international developmental debates. The question that usually arises during these debates is why is sub Saharan Africa the poorest? Many of these debates have raised issues trying to address the situation, the key reason identified by many researchers on poverty in this part of the world is inequality. In Ghana, inequality still remains a major challenge and a troubling issue. Where women are marginalized and denied certain rights and opportunities, despite the international community’s efforts to end this, the phenomenon still prevails. This trend has taken toe in every sphere of our economic and social lives, it can be manifested even in our leadership. There are 275 parliamentarians in the country, out of this 35 are women representing 13% of the legislature (https://www.parliament.gh/). There are 110 ministers of state in the country with only 29 of them being women (presidency.gov.gh/index.php/governance). This phenomenon has reflected in virtually every other aspect of our economy. This has greatly affected everything we do as a country. Women have been relegated to the backdrop.

This project would demystify and break the chain of inequality in Ghana and empower women. Women will be selected from diverse fields, trained and empowered to take up leadership positions and roles. They will be taught investment and wealth creation, and they would be showed avenues in which they can leverage Smartcash as a source of income generation through speculative decisions and the use of smartRewards.

Most of these women are traders, they buy their goods online and physically in many parts of world using fiat money. The risk involved in using this fiat money is enormous and therefore the need to adopt and use cryptocurrency and Smartcash in particular to transact. The training will be held in 3 regions of Ghana.

Having successfully organize meetups in Ghana and having helped @Cryptowall in the current Smartcash Roadshow in Ghana, I have a strong conviction that this project is possible and necessary.
