PROJECT GIVING:
OUR OBJECTIVE

Project Giving's primary motive as the Steem blockchain's first


NGO is to use the power of the Steemit platform as a tool to
provide meaningful assistance to people and projects who need
our help all around the world.

Project Giving's team finds non-profit initiatives either through


Steemit or online who are trying to create positive change in their
communities or surrounding environment. 

Project Giving's team then creates a personalized blog which


shares the story of these initiatives, how they improve the lives of
those around them, and how they would benefit from Steemit
based financial assistance. 

All author rewards from these posts are then donated to these
initiatives in order to facilitate genuine social development, all
thanks to the power of the Steemit community.

Therefore, through Project Giving, all Steemians from minnows to


whales, have the opportunity to use their influence on the Steemit
platform to improve the lives of people around the world who need
our help.

Through the sharing of these blogs, Project Giving also increases


exposure on global issues such as poverty, environmental threats
and inequality, while sharing the stories behind the people who
are trying to tackle them.
PROJECT   OVERVIEW
PROJECT GIVING & STEEMIT
A PERFECT MATCH
A unique model for creating social change.
Many people often want to help others around the world but don't
because it requires the sharing of credit card information and billing
addresses etc. 

However, thanks to the Steemit social media platform, people only need
to "like" an initiative blog post to genuinely help the lives of people in
need by raising funds through Project Giving.

The perfect advertisment for Steemit.


Project Giving is very much committed to being a part of the
promotional drive for steemit to gain mass adoption.

If Project Giving becomes a successful project, we believe it will be a


global advertisement about the social utility of the Steemit platform as
a tool for positive global change.

It will showcase both that Steemit is more than just a social media
platform, and that the Steemit community can come together to
improve the lives and social situations of others around the world.

Bringing new members to the platform.


Initiatives which we support will be encouraged to use the Project
Giving & Steemit logos on their media, giving Steemit increased
exposure and sign-ups.

Project Giving will also help introduce the projects which we support
which are not already on Steemit to the platform. This way, even after
we have helped their initiative with funding, they can continue to
showcase their development to the Steemit community.

We honestly believe that one of the ways that Steem can gain
attention from mainstream media in the future is through fully
accountable charitable initiatives like ours and we would like to invite
you along with us on this journey.

STEEMIT BASED PROJECTS


Since we operate on Steemit, we hope that some of the initiatives we help
sponsor will exist and be found through the site.

In this case, the accountability will be easier as 2, 3 & 4 will instead take place
as a simple Steemit based transfer. Screenshots of transfer will exist as normal.

YOKAENSO
OUR FIRST INITIATIVE
YOKAENSO (Youth Kawakamo Environment Solutions) is a Community Based
Organization founded in Mwanza, Tanzania. This project was started by
Emmanuel Bujashi, a former street child turned social worker, to address
environmental conservation, food security and unemployment in his local
community. As of now, YOKAENSO has drafted the help of 12 youths to
volunteer with the project.

YOKAENSO seeks to help non-educated youth gain practical skills and


experience through engaging in income generating activity, while at the
same time, working to reduce the amount of waste in their local community.

This is done through a four step program. Step 1 is door to door collection of
plastic and organic waste which is done for a small, affordable fee.  This
reduces plastic waste and ensures it is recycled properly. Step 2 is the
distribution of paper bags to also reduce plastic waste. Step 3 uses the
organic waste collected to create high quality organic fertilizer (compost) to
start a community farm to increase local food security. Finally, step 4 is the
holding of community environmental solutions workshops by YOKAENSO to
improve local literacy on these issues.

        Project Giving's first Steemit fundraiser will be for this initiative.
