Our Projects

We are currently focused on the following projects.

Africa Disaster Relief Funds
Disaster Relief & Climate Crisis Aid in Africa

MPowa has partnered with IHRC and other organizations to launch an initiative to aid communities in Malawi, DRC, Nigeria, and Uganda using the OneStep Fund Module. The goal is to aid communities affected by natural disasters, health crises, and climate change-related water crises. OneStep's end-to-end disaster relief process is supported by the Algorand Blockchain and Circle, with every cent accounted for and a thorough KYC process implemented for financial accountability. The MPowa initiative is a pilot example of how OneStep can be used to make disaster relief more seamless, transparent, and effective in the future. Join us in making a difference in these communities.

Remote Technical Centers

We are designing a software ecosystem to power digital medical recordkeeping, remote education, and mentorship for medical and educational professionals serving some of the most rural communities in the world. If you're a developer, community health worker, or educator, we'd love to hear from you.
