Bitcoin Botswana – Charity Program Member
Bitcoin Botswana Community Group
The Bitcoin Botswana Community Group is committed to the local growth of Bitcoin. The community group is run by local ‘Bitcoin Ambassador’ Alakanani Itireleng. Her activities have attracted a lot of attention. Under Alakanani’s watchful eye Bitcoin Botswana has joined forces with the with SOS children’s village, bringing hope to local children and building a positive image for Bitcoin in Botswana.
SOS Children’s village Botswana has been operational for over 30 years in Botswana. In partnership with the United States Department of Labor, they are caring for 1100 children exposed to exploitative child labour. This programme provides uniforms for the children, while our staff organise placement in schools and other support in the holidays.
SOS Children’s villages Botswana operates in three villages across the country; Tlokweng , Serowe and Francistown, caring for orphaned, destitute, and abandoned children.
Alakanani and Bitcoin Botswana run regular meet-up groups focusing on education. The group now receives regular enquiries from businesses interested in accepting Bitcoin. Bitcoin Botswana firmly believes that Bitcoin is a solution to money problems in Africa.
They are committed to making this a reality. The group already makes merchandise: stickers and t-shirts with ‘Bitcoin accepted here’, but these endeavours are expensive. Their resources are limited. There is a lot to do. It’s a journey that requires the full commitment of a dedicated team.
