Give Bitcoin. Educate. Empower. Transform.
Mona Foundation believes that every child deserves the gift of education.
Cryptocurrency donations help us give that gift.
We educate children in need globally, empower women and girls, and enable them to give back to transform their own communities. In 2019 we supported the education and empowerment of more than 429,000 students in 19 projects in 12 countries. We are also the proud recipient of Pineapple Fund grant of $1,000,000. During this unprecedent time of crisis, Mona Foundation is combating COVID19 in projects we support based on the needs (please give crypto to meet these needs):
At Badi School in Panama, a school with 450 students, the staff mobilized and within 2 weeks by leveraging Google Education Suite available to them free of charge. Needs now include 8 computers for 8 staff members @about $400 each=$3,200 so they can record their lessons.
In Lucknow, India, Mona supports 49 one-room schools in urban slums or remote villages where there is no running water, sanitation or schools, and often a family of 8-10 members live in one make-shift hut shared with their animals. Currently, there is a severe lack of awareness and means to fight this pandemic in these communities. Needs now include:
- COVID Kits: Masks: Provide 2,600 children with 8 masks, $0.25 each=$5,200, and 2 bars of sanitizing soap, $1.00 each = $5,200.
- Food: Provide 1,600 families of 4 each dry ration kit for a month = $8,944.
- Cell phone and access to Internet: Equip the Alumni students with either a cell phone or a computer and access to the internet so they can leverage our online digital library, DSHOnline, teach 5 to 10 children in their neighborhood. 40 Digital Enablers at $100/each = $4,000.
