A non-governmental organization and Electroneum partner, the WONDER Foundation, in a recent donation, disbursed $11,000 it got from ETN block reward to a Nigerian Female College, Electroneum has said.
The donation was in a bid to support 110 female students and to render financial assistance to 48 employees who are on recess due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
The WONDER Foundation, founded in 2012, is a UK based women-led non-governmental organization (NGO). The foundation in an attempt to enable women to become an agent of change for their lives and the environment focuses majorly on empowering females of all ages from Africa, Europe, Asia, and Latin America by aiding them to gain qualitative education and have access to a decent job.
As of June 2019, WONDER Foundation has reportedly received over $30,000 ETN block rewards out of which $11,000 was sent to Wavecrest College, Lagos, Nigeria to aid virtual learning amid the global economic lockdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, when WONDER foundation was first established, it never believed that cryptocurrency would be a good tool for raising funds to empower people. Nevertheless, they have given support to over 50,000 females via 37 projects which they have sponsored by raising funds and donations through cryptocurrency.
WONDER Foundation gives many thanks to crypto mining activity as it has been an alternative way of raising funds to support hundreds of females. As the NGO celebrates the first year since it began mining crypto, report shows that they have mined over US$30,000.
