Amply: Africa’s Childhood Development On Blockchain Tech?
What Is Amply?
Amply is a new blockchain project that intends to improve the childhood of many kids in Africa. By using a combination of the blockchain technology and mobile, it aims to increase the accountability and the efficacy of governmental programs for schooling little children in Africa.
The project of the company uses smartphones to verify the attendance of children to pre-school in Africa and capture more important information about these children. They will go to a governmental funded pre-school that was created by the government of South Africa.
The data of these children’s development will be guarded by their parents or legal guardians and, if they consent, it will be used in the development of educational solutions for kids in similar situations. This way, many other projects can be made.
Shaun Conway is the main creator of the platform. Other important members of this project are Lohan Spies (systems architect and product specialist), Joyce Zang (product and marketing manager), Lyndsey Petro (operations and sociology expert) and Stacey Hobson (data manager).
How Amply Africa's Child Development On Blockchain Tech Works
Basically, this company uses a partnership with the government of South Africa, that provides education. The company has developed technological solutions to increase the trust of the people in the service and to monitor the development of the children better.
This way, it can gather real time data about them and link them to sovereign identities, increase the efficiency and the quality of public services in the field of education in South Africa and create a blockchain that will be able to manage this platform.
The creators of this project believe that it is able to accelerate the development of this children and to provide tools for them to have better access in the world. The blockchain is used as a way to keep the information, while the mobile technology helps to gather it. After the process, the information is stored in a public ledger and it is analyzes by education experts.
This way, the system creates data with high fidelity and without errors. All transactions are verifiable and may give a rich pool of resources that can be used for the governmental implementation of new educational policies for children in South Africa and even in other countries. This blockchain is based on the Ethereum blockchain and it uses smart contracts, as usual.
Can You Invest In Amply?
No. This is not a lucrative enterprise, so it will sell tokens to fund the project. Also, it already has the backing of the South African government. The company is looking for sponsors and volunteers, though.
If you believe that you can help the company, you should contact it and offer your services. If you want to sponsor this initiative and put your brand into this project, you should also contact Amply to know how to proceed.
While not a traditional investment, we believe that, in case you want to donate to this company, your money would not be wasted. The company definitely has some potential for success and, while you would not get a financial return, you would at least have the satisfaction to know that your donations have helped the children in need to get a better education.
This is one of the initiatives that show that the blockchain technology is, indeed, changing the world. The potential of this technology is far from being completely explored, so you can wait for many similar initiatives that will use this technology to solve social issues in the future.
