OUR FIRST PROJECT ON THE BLOCKCHAIN- EMPOWERING THE NIGERIAN CHILD TO EDUCATION
Education as we all know, plays a major role in the growth and development of not just a community or country but also empowers an individual to be universally competent. Knowledge is power and knowledge is best acquired through education.
However, young children and youths of developing countries have been posted with threats from financial incapabilities to fund their educational pursuit and on most cases, lack of educational materials to aid learning.
Backtoschool is project on the Steem blockchain spear headed by nine(9) competent minnow individuals(@iamchijamz @desmoniac @burlarj @donnest @adabless @michaeljerry0 @acheever @sammyswt @steemcenturion) aimed at reaching out to less privileged Steemians and non-steemians around the globe in areas pertaining to education by funding tuition fees in percentages that will be proportional to the genuine need of the beneficiaries.
Who is a farmer without farm tools and who is student without writing materials and textbooks. It is on this note that we have decided to embark on our very first project which is
"EMPOWERING THE NIGERIAN CHILD TO EDUCATION".
Our target is to distribute writing materials (exercise books, pen and pencils) to primary and secondary school students in Abuja and Abia state, Nigeria, as a gesture to inculcate both reading and writing habits to the students and celebrating Children's day with them, thereby heightening the value for education in their hearts and minds, and also spreading the good news of Steemit.
The project will span from 27th of may, through 5th of June, 2018.
Big things start small and we hope to do more in the nearest future- we plan to help as many people as we can reachout to, and we believe that with your support, we can go places.
Below is a brief but detailed explanation on the estimated core expenses minus the transportation and other little expenses that the community leaders have decided to task themselves to fund.
1 exercise book cost #80
So 1000 exercise books is #80,000
1 pack of pen is #90(40 pieces)
So 15packs = #13,500 (600 pieces)
1pack of pencil is #200(12 pieces)
So 40 packs = #8,000
Total expenses = #80,000 + #13,500 + #8,000 = #101,500
Current value of sbd and steem to Dollar according to whale(SUBJECT TO CHANGE)
SBD = $2.6785 | 0.00030647 BTC
STEEM = $3.1944 | 0.00036550 BTC
#101,500= 110 SBD
#101,500= 92 STEEM
Above is the detailed explanation of all we hope to actualize and so, we plead for assistance and donations of any kind from we meaning steemians; @sircork, @surpassinggoogle @air-clinic @ejemai @dimimp @teardrops @sourcehope @ehiboss @surfyogi @danielsaori @eurogee @infovore @y001900 @sistem @papa-pepper @damarth @michaelcj
