Good Day Bitcoin Utopia Community,
We would like to take this opportunity to give you an update on our program. We also would like to thank you so verrry much for the 3 Bitcoins that you mined for us and to let you know how we spent the funds.
We have evolved our program to ABLE the Adult Basic Livelihood Education. ABLE IS the next generation of the (ALS)Alternative Learning System program. ABLE was created for Out of School Youth (OSY) living in extreme poverty to develop skills for daily living as well as social and workforce integration. However, we have also discovered that there is a need for ABLE in a number of spaces where the traditional teacher – textbook and classroom education system is either unwilling, unable or ill-equipped to operate. These spaces include Conflict and Disaster Affected Youth, Prisoner Rehabilitation, etc.
Through ABLE we are still using the online Values Mentoring program to mentor the youth who are involved in our Community Service – Values program. The youths who provide community service are rewarded with our own virtual currency, which we plan to upgrade to a Bitcoin style of currency soon. If anyone in the Bitcoin Utopia Community is knowledgeable in blockchain development we would sure appreciate some guidance.
Anyway the 3 Bitcoin’s that you raised for us came in real handy. Last month our funding did not arrive as scheduled, so we were scrambling around looking for funds to pay our staff. I remembered that we had socked away the bitcoins for a rainy day, and it was starting to rain, so we cashed them in and were able to make our payroll 🙂
I have attached a photo of our office located on the campus of Philippine Normal University and you can see our HopeGames staff (I’m the one taking the pic, so you are spared from seeing my mug)
