"Steemit future in Africa (Zimbabwe) - GOING VIRAL"

in steemit •  5 months ago

I am happy and have joy that a social media is able to change lives of Africans this easily. I am writing with so much joy as a self imposed Steemit Zimbabwe ambassador seeking to send steemit across Zimbawe and Africa as a whole. In my attempt to accomplish this mission I have a very great team of dedicated fellow Zimbabweans @steemitzimbawe @zimleague @tkembo who are spending time spreading the steemit gospel and we have made it our official project to assist and train new users.

Tremendous things have been happening to all those I have helped bring on board. To say the least am so much grateful that the people of Zimbawe and Africa as a whole are being given this opportunity to partake in this evolutionary community. Transcending social media to a new level.We are taking over Zimbabwe by the end of the year thats our aim and the response is amazing.

WHY STEEMIT IS SO IMPORTANT TO ZIMBABWEANS

Zimbabwe has been facing some serious economic hardships which have left a lot of citizens in abject poverty ,the unemployment rates have skyrocketed leaving University graduates resorting to street vending,selling tomatoes in the streets. This untapped raw talent being put to worst.

According to the United Nation-2016, 72.3% of all Zimbabweans were considered poor, whilst 62.6% of the households in Zimbabwe are deemed poor. Poverty is more prevalent in rural areas compared to urban areas with about 76% of the rural households considered poor compared to 38.2% of urban households.

The decline in formal employment, with many workers engaged in poorly remunerated informal jobs, has a direct bearing on both poverty and hunger. In 2016, 94% of paid employees received an income equal to or below the total consumption poverty line (TCPL) for an average family of five, while three out of every four employed persons in Zimbabwe are classified as ‘vulnerable employment’.

Against this background steemit will provide a platform for exposure to these different talented individuals and provide a decent normal life for many,while enjoying the power of social media interaction with people all over the world.

PROJECT SO FAR
There has been a tremendous increase in the new user registration so far we have achieved this by creating #steemitzimbabwe Whatsapp groups ,which we use as a platform to advertise ,teach and assist members on account registrations and discussion on what to expect when they join steemit.This is the first phase.

Second phase ,after the approval of their accounts ,they are transferred to different chatrooms on discord [https://discord.gg/A7BbTf ]for further assistance on using steemit and as a discussion platform ,which help the new users to fully intergrate into Steemit .The Chatrooms are subdivided into the countries cities ,for easy access by members.
DISC.jpg

We also want to embark on printing T shirts with steemit logo,marketing #steemitzimbawe.By so doing we want to give our new users confidence in the system,and reassure them that this is not some fake pop up site.Many Zimbabweans have been very skeptical about venturing into online cryptocurrency investment programs,after they where robbed of their hard earned money by ponzi schemes like MMM.

But on the brighter side the Zimbabwean community have showed great interest in Steemit because there is a lot of untapped raw talent.There are many talented writers,singers ,poets , actors who lake exposure ,and will use this platform to showcase their talents.

From what I see from the Steemit stories till now, most of the Steemians are Western people. Off course it's nice to receive a couple of hundreds bucks for a post, but imagine what it means for people that have a monthly salary of 50$ or even less. We are sitting on something than can change the lives of a lot of people.

I am going to create an introductory post for all the new people on steemit.It has been a flood and people are coming in day by day. Their accounts are being approved and more guides are being made.We spending a lot of time showing the minnows their way around steemit,this will help them get on their feet and share their amazing stories they have to tell the world.

I will be using this opportunity to do a mass introduction.

Please welcome the following :

I applaud the high level of organization you have already accomplished. I personally keep a 100 Trillion Zimbabwe Dollars bill from 2009 to remind me how easy it is for something fundamental, like money, to change rapidly. Zimbabwe has had some bad luck. I am rooting for everyone there.

Thank you very much for the kind words .

Thats great my friend ,we should organise a meetup sometime in the near future.

This is great, and you are absolutely right, something like Steemit could change lives for Zimbabweans!

I am from the Netherlands but have visited Zimbabwe twice and my family owns a travel company that specializes in Zimbabwe and we know and have met many wonderful people. We were truly shocked at the friendliness, even compared to neighboring countries. My mother now visits about once a year and has many friends there. Would love to see Africa as a whole partake more on these exciting technological (and economical) initiatives so that for once they are not left behind again!

If any Zimbabweans are reading and want to know how they could participate and perhaps earn some money: Why not photograph your beautiful country, educate the world on your wildlife? These are things that are very interesting for people to read and see! I would love to follow a good Zimbabwe blog.

·

Thank you for the great Advice .I will do so

@tinashe, steemit is very important for Zimbabwe. I read your passionate blog above and couldn't help, but be in awe at your vision and plans for uplifting hundreds of talented Zimbabweans who are struggling to make a decent life there. I come from India and I can relate to the struggle and pain that you and your people have gone through and still going through.
I am deeply touched by your passionate appeal to steemit community to embrace the Zimbabweans steemit group here with open arms.
Welcome dear friend. Let's all work together and flourish together. God bless you.

·

Thank you very much @topdog for the kind words ,you have just added more zeal in me to pursue my goal of helping my community.I saw it fit to appeal to the steemit community because people here are willing to help if you have a just cause .Dont feel shy to talk to people ,they wont know your ambitions if you dont present to them.Brother to be where i am now on steemit it has not been easy,at one time i talked to one of the guys here and asked very well for a resteem of the post-i was met with harsh words but that did not stop my endeavors.I love steemit and we are going to make it work .
GOD BLESS YOU TOO

Never let anyone stop your heart @tinashe. It is only through the heart that change can come. It is never understood until people have walked the shoes of those experiencing - like what Zimbabweans have been through. I left in 2000 but Zimbabwe is my home. I am glad you continue with your project. There will always be those that say no. You always say yes! :)
