Will be grateful to see you around!

I believe in you all!

Hey @Bunia! Welcome! I am very excited that you have shared this proposal with us. Can you detail your metrics a little more clearly?

For each metric, can you detail a measurable goal? For example:
“Social media platforms will be created to engage the participants, before and after the event to keep the community posted about”


“We will onboard 25 attendees into a Harmony Telegram group, providing everyone with tutorials on how to build on Harmony, how to connect with the Harmony discord, and how to get involved with regional DAOs in Africa to further their involvement with the Harmony ecosystem”

If you have held past events, can you share the following:

  • how many attendees?
  • metrics for success
  • speakers and the topics presented

ONE more thing. Harmony is passionate about building strong relationships, and we want to really learn more about where you live, challenges you see that people face, and ways that you and the community feel web3 can make a positive impact to onboard new people, empower locals, and open the door of opportunity to ensure everyone has equal access to all things web3.

If you can include this in your proposal, that would be wonderful!

I look forward to your response!

Thank you @Mattyontap
Will create a google form and survey to collect participants information and interests to enable us create social media groups, twitter and telegram group to onboard more than 20 participants and provide them with Harmony updates, tutorials on how to build on Harmony, how to connect with other general Harmony groups on telegram, Discord, twitter and other Harmony DAO’s in Africa.

Have hosted 2 Blockchain related meetups before, with 25 and 32 participants respectively, covered topics about Blockchain technology, web 3, Decentralized Finance, Cryptography, and Smart contracts, having David and Joan as speakers.

One of the most challenges in my region is the poor Banking system and services, a lot of paper work is required to open up Bank accounts where most of the Banks also require KRA pin (Kenya Revenue Authority Pin) to open up accounts for individuals, We feel Blockchain technology and web3 can democratize the Banking system with better services such as affordable loans and interests.

Thank you for revising the metrics, and for sharing about some of your areas of need.

What are some ways that you can address these areas in your event? Perhaps hosting a workshop to download the 1wallet, metamask, and onboarding participants to play-to-earn games on Harmony?

I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Yes, one of the ways will be sharing about Defi, how to connect to Harmony network using MetaMask, staking Harmony(One) to earn passive income, connecting to dApps on Harmony network for Borrowing and Lending and to earn interests

Can you share the website for your club, as well as twitter and telegram links for you and your partners? I would like to get a chat going with you and your team
