[PROPOSAL] INCREASING OF NEAR BLOCKCHAIN HUBS IN NIGERIA UNIVERSITIES (Starting From Akwa Ibom State University)

[PROPOSAL]
INCREASING OF NEAR BLOCKCHAIN HUBS IN NIGERIA UNIVERSITIES
(Starting From Akwa Ibom State University)

INTRODUCTION
Near is currently one of the fastest Growing Blockchain , Result from one of my research shows that 65% of the total number of Nigerians involve in digital currencies are Students so therefore looking at this fact am PROPOSING for the establishment Of Near block chain Hubs in Nigeria Universities Starting from Akwa ibom state university.

GOALS
The Near protocol Nigeria have been effective in their work but somehow the Good news of Near was hovering around the Surface Of Nigeria with the establishment of Near Block Chain Hubs in Nigeria , near will Drop down and the masses will be fully aware of it , this will boost the presence of near in Nigeria
The Block Chain Hub will form a close partnership with the Students Developers club or any other Developers club present in the university , the block chain Hub will put them through the " Near Certified Developer " program literally with this the block chain Hub will bring in more Developers into the ecosystem .
The Hub will also promote Extra Curricular Activities like
*Sport Activities in The University
*Dance and music Activities through NEAR

TALENT HUNT
this activities will also help boost the presence of near in the university and Nigeria as a whole through inter campus sport more like "Nigeria Near Annual sport competition "
Being the first Blockchain in Nigeria to do this it will attract attention from Media and Business expertise

EVALUATION AND INSTRUMENTATION
Being under the umbrella of the NEAR PROTOCOL NIGERIA the Hub will work hand in hand with the Near PROTOCOL NIGERIA , Giving monthly Report to the NPK guild through it representative , attending important NPK meetings and taking back important information back to the campus

PANEL OF REPRESENTATIVES
The panel are people who will Create awareness about the hub , take charge of Hosting seminars/workshop and activities in the university

Some of the head roles we need in the hubs are
Representative of the Hub
Seminars/workshops moderator
Event organiser
Representative from the Developers club
Social media manager

COST/EXPENSES
*The hub will need to host Event which will need support from near
*The hub will engage in extra curricular activities (sports competition or talent hunt)
*The hub will engage in online contest Like the meme, best article etc
This is to give the community a sense of belonging and it will promote oneness
The panel which should consist of not more than 5 people should be compensated with the minimum of 100USD in Near token
This is to make them do their job effectively and with passion , Working without reward’s won’t yield much improvement As some people will be like "What’s my business after all am not being paid " Reward has another way of motivating people to bring out their best
In other for the hub to operate effectively the hub will seek consistent support from the Near protocol Nigeria

A break down of the COST/EXPENSES will help clear the air. You should include it for clarity purpose.
Above all, an awesome idea.

I would love this to grow in all. Will really need help of your team in reaching the middle belt states. Can your team render help with Benue State University?

Actually
Thank you for the appreciating this idea

But actually at the moment there is no way we can evaluate the cost break down more than that
As contest , competition and other event won’t come regularly
To sponsor
The dev club is something that might happen once or twice in a semester
So literally we can’t calculate the cost at the moment

The meme and other contest might happen once every month
So when the time comes
We will make an official proposal to what we need funds for

Greetings @shashi @David_NEAR
I spent some time to read about the
Fellowship program
And honestly this is not actually the idea I conceived
The hub will run as a sub community under the NPK guild
Though it’s being establish in the universities
It’s more like a community.
To make it’s simple
Let’s use this

Near global community (federal system)
|
|
Npk guild $ other guild (State system)

|

Blochain hub (grass root system)

The reason we have so many sub communities in near is to spread and cover as many part as possible
I propose for a sub community under the NPK guild to boost near to the grass root system .
