Nachem Payment 1 – Hiring a School Teacher

What happened?
  1. The GiveDirect Ghana Team traveled to the village of Nachem to meet our female head of households receiving Basic Income payments…
  2. The digital currency was exchanged for fiat (local government issued currency) using the GiveDirect Platform…
  3. Teachable moments were shared with our ladies by GiveDirect, Government Agencies and NGO’s  on the ground…
  4. Our ladies “decided to commit part of this income into hiring private teachers to teach their children in a government school building that has virtually been abandoned”…
  5. Something very, very special. 
The Power of Choice…

This is a perfect example of the power of Basic Income.  GiveDirect didn’t go to the village bringing shoes, food, books, medicine or clean water…  We brought cash and the village spoke by using the cash to hire a teacher.  Why you ask?  Because when given the choice they value the power of an education for their children.  Education might not be what a village other than Nachem chooses when they receive basic income with your donations in the future; but the power comes from the choice that Basic Income provides… GiveDirect strongly believes that “those in need, know what they need, best and to assume otherwise is arrogant.”

  • The two TC-Champ wallet addresses and only “overhead” expenses our project has for supporting operations on the ground were also paid.
  • Our project escrow account (where your donation lands) has these current balances.
  • The only stellar address in Ghana that can take funds from a GiveDirect NFC Wristband Wallet controlled by the TC-Champ’s phone and our Android App .

In Salam’s Words…

TC-Champ: The travel was a good experience from Tamale with Ben, we were joined by Mr Iddrisu, the social welfare director at Gushegu. Donations of 700 cedi each worth of XLM was exchanged for each GiveDirect households in Nachem. The households were very excited and amazed as a lifetime experience of receiving unconditional basic income. They decided to commit part of this income into hiring private teachers to teach their children in a government school building that has virtually been abandoned. It was a lifetime experience for the ground team of GiveDirect witnessing how our households/beneficiaries intend to setup a community school for their kids with our donations. Is mind blowing and with the best wishes and prayers said to our donors, we are serving where our service is most needed.
