Leveraging the Blockchain for Social Impact
The Blockchain has much to offer for social outcomes that can be applied to issues like land titling, supply chains, humanitarian service delivery, voting and a variety of other applications. However we realize the lessons learned/difficulties from previous experience leveraging technological solutions to social problems. This experience highlights the need to take a human centered approach to technology solutions, keeping the needs and capacity of the end user in mind when designing, applying and adapting the technology.
We are able to bring an operational knowledge of the technology that drives the blockchain and combine it with our rich development experience which enables us to bridge the gap between the coders/technologists and development professionals, field staff and beneficiaries.
We have partnered with the Blockchain for Social Impact consortium in incubators and other forums to help develop, test and scale blockchain solutions in the areas of Democracy/Governance, Refugees, Agriculture, Economic Growth and Gender.
At present we are working with several partners in piloting blockchain solutions in refugee camps to provide reliable access to funds in a timely fashion. Within the next few months we hope to pilot blockchain solutions for land titling amongst rural farmers.
