The Built With Bitcoin Foundation has announced a partnership with the team behind Satoshibles Non -fungible Token (NFT), a successful crypto collectable project on the Ethereum blockchain.
The Built With Bitcoin Foundation (BWB) is a humanitarian organization dedicated to ensuring equal opportunity by providing clean water, quality education, sustainable farming, and humanitarian assistance, all of which are supported by bitcoins.
Built With NFT is an NFT collection created by BWB and Satoshibles that will donate hundreds of ETH to humanitarian activities.
Students from BWB campuses around Africa, notably the Nursery and Primary schools in Rwanda, Kenya, and Nigeria, contributed artwork to the NFT collection.
From this artwork, 10,000 unique NFTs will be up for purchase.
The Foundation’s ongoing efforts to create schools and communities around the world will be funded entirely by the earnings, with their next projects beginning in West Africa and Central America in 2022.
This launch is timed to coincide with #GivingTuesday, a day dedicated to encouraging others to donate to charity organizations and causes.
The Built With Bitcoin Foundation has so far constructed six schools (two in Rwanda, two in Kenya, and two in Nigeria), ten water projects, and dozens of farms. By 2030, the Foundation hopes to have built 100 schools and communities.
While this campaign is still in its early stages, Satoshibles has already donated 10 ETH to BWB to help them start Phase I of their project, which includes installing a water well, solar system, computer lab, laptops, landscaping, and fencing at the site of two existing nursery and primary schools in Kaduna State, Nigeria, which serve a community of over 2,000 people.
The project is already in the works, with BWB aiming to finish by the end of December 2021.
“We think that with access to education, water, and finance, individuals can build the life they want,” stated Ray Youssef, Executive Director of Built With Bitcoin.
“Over the years, we’ve had the honour of delivering critical resources to tens of thousands of people all over the world, not just by building schools, but also by forming strong and long-lasting communities.”
“We intend to create a passion for giving back while redefining how the world views crypto by launching the Built With NFT line with Satoshibles on Giving Tuesday.” He further said.
“These students have made it possible to create a large amount of funds while improving the lives of communities all around the world,” Built With Bitcoin’s Director of Philanthropy, Yusuf Nessary, stated.
“Through this project, these young kids have the power to contribute to the education of other pupils like themselves,” Yusuf explained.
“We believe this emphasizes the critical nature of humanitarian activities.” Serving one community has a cascading effect that provides the community with resources.
“This is the first initiative to harness NFTs for social good at this scale,” Satoshibles creator Brian Laughlan stated. We’ve created a one-of-a-kind collection with a captivating story using the Built With Bitcoin Foundation’s community and our expertise in launching NFT initiatives.”
“With this launch, we intend to kickstart new initiatives and demonstrate how NFTs can be utilised to promote change.”
