Description

 INTRODUCTION

Dear all,

Alhassan Abdul Wadud https://twitter.com/cryptosoja is my name known on the smartcash community as cryptosoja. A crypto advocate who believe smartcash is the future of payments. I have supported cryptotravelers in advocating cryptocurrency through meet ups and conferences under the umbrella of our free markets and liberty think tank. Due to the increasing adoption of cryptocurrency in Africa and with the passion and enthusiasm I have for smartcash and as part of my efforts to inflate the adoption and usage of smartcash, I am proposing a program: INTRODUCING SMARTCASH TO SENIOR HIGH SCHOOLS IN GHANA. This project intern to run in partnership with DREAM BIG FOUNDATION https://web.facebook.com/DREAM-BIG-Foundation-1210131202401498/. Gradually cryptocurrency adoption in Africa is taking root at an admirable pace. However, one of the relevant areas that need a big push is the educational sector to accept and understand the relevance of blockchain technology, cryptocurrency and smartcash. This is very essential since, that will boost the adoption and offer Africans the freedom and comfort stations to these currencies and Ghana is one of the African countries where cryptocurrency adoption is picking up massively. Therefore the proposal intends to introduce smartcash to secondary schools in Ghana and make a target of 4-5 secondary schools within a period of a month with the development of interest and the acceptance of smartcash by secondary schools, since we need schools to understand the relevance of cryptocurrency, blockchain technology and smartcash as a means of payment which is easy, fast and can be processed immediately. For the first time this initiative will be introduce into the country, to introduce smart to secondary schools in Ghana will help expand the smartcash frontier and the increment of smartcash usability in Ghana. This project is aimed at introducing Smartcash to students in the secondary level in Ghana. The reason is to educate them on the importance of youth savings as a means of creating access to and a key link between economic opportunities and outcomes for young people and enabling them to manage emergencies, invest in their education as well as improve their future orientation.

WHAT WE INTERNT TO DO

  1. We intend to organize a meet up with the secondary schools across the country within a period a months to discuss the relevance and uses of the blockchain technology, cryptocurrency and smartcash. The reason being that, until a number of schools start to understand the relevant and importance of smartcash as a future of money which will soon replace the fiat currency in the near future as payment of goods and services, that smartcash can now be fully recognize for the purpose of it creation
  2. Also All participants will be trained on the blockchain technology, Smartcash, how to download and setup Smartcash wallets, key features of Smartcash, how to purchase Smartcash from local and international exchanges, and the advantages of using Smartcash for their daily transactions worldwide for the payment goods and services, payment of fees/bills, receiving remittances and many more. Students will therefore be encouraged to use their savings to purchase Smartcash to accumulate capital and wealth using Smartcash and SmartRewards as store of capital in the long term to realize their entrepreneurial goals.
  3. We intern to print smart manual guide for beginners in this ecosystem. hold meet ups with teachers of the selected schools and educate them on smartcash.

One on one meeting with principals, headmasters/headmistress and school staffs as well

  1. A radio talk show will be held in each region to create public awareness within the region. Also as part of the project, we aim to Increase the adoption of smart as a means of exchange (transacting businesses) and investment 

WHY SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL      

  1. Students from senior high schools constitute of people with different culture background and form different palace. So if the students are educated, you are sure the information will disseminate faster.
  2. Students can adapt to technological change faster and they are in the act of learning so it will be easy for them to learn more about smartcash and know for themselves how they can benefit from smartcash.
  3. Student easily convinces their parents and peers from other schools and communities. When student are on vacations, all friends would be backed home and he/she shares what they have learnt and think it would benefit their colleagues.
  4. Students are the future generation and can make smartcash to stay when they adopt it.
