Blockchain Club of Uganda December Budget
With the tremendous steps taken by our Guild as reported in our November monthly update, we feel rejuvenated to achieve more through making the best out of December. Thanks to Jessica and team for new energies introduced to the program.
With two months ticking on our initial proposal to complete our milestones, an event with the Tourism sector suits the occasion. Sub-Saharan Africa has greatly leveraged on the tourism sector which attracts a number of tourists from all over the world as well as domestically.
This trend and kind operation provides a favorable environment for DeFi as the sector has greatly decried bureaucracy/red-tape in the system as a whole.
This has created a move to adoption of cryptocurrencies and the p2p systems in the region with media reports indicating above 30% increase in p2p in Nigeria, Kenya and Uganda.
Given the above background, it is crucial to examine the potential sectors that will adopt DeFi, peculiar to this is the Tourism sector.
In the same regard, we have engaged a number of Tour and Travel companies in particular Bird Uganda https://www.birduganda.com/ (famous for bird tracking), https://www.gorillatours.com/ and https://www.wildtripsafricasafaris.com/
These have given us a warm welcome, an opportunity to tap this potential use case for the Near ecosystem.
Therefore, plan to arrange an event on a trip in late December with the above Tour and Travel companies(these will be invited through official invitation letters) in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest(famous for Mountain Gorillas).
It should be noted that most of the target Tour and Travel companies have been informally.
This will help Near to be one of the pioneer blockchains in the tourism industry in Uganda as we intend to have the invited companies(estimated 7 companies) to start receiving payment through wallet.near.org
Team Transport (with Hire Vehicle for 2 days) = $600
Team Accommodation + meals 5120 for two days &1 night = $600
Domestic Tracking 1 day (Team with the company) 2060 = $1200
Workshop Venue $300
Food for approximately for 20 members (20*15) $300
Social Media Management
We have social media channels for twitter and telegram where we share both our Guild and Near related content, articles and announces in both English and the major dialects (Kiswahili and Luganda). Telegram: Contact @BlockchainClubUg 2 https://twitter.com/BlockchainClubU
Our guild website also has a newsletter section where we send updates to subscribers.
These updates also include monthly reports.
These channels are managed and handled by the Blockchain Club of Uganda Head of Communications.
Added to social media maintenance, we have established close relationships with mainstream media. We are on the look to maintain these relations.
This will cost us $500
Total Budget for December
Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Event with Tour and Guild Companies $3000
Social Media and Main Stream Media relations $500
Total $3500 equivalent to 412N( 1=$8.5 at time of posting)
