Various members of the international Bitcoin community will be there to tour the facility. According to the press release, the main goal of the Bitcoin Technology Center is to “equip the local community with skills, knowledge within the finance industry and technology industries — it’s also meant to build community, foster community, and foster a safe place to learn.” The Edwinase community and Blockchain Foundation Africa provide support for the facility. There will be eight employees, including lecturers and administrators. The center will be accessible free of charge and will aim to educate and train approximately 400 people within the first year.

According to the foundation’s website, BWB is a humanitarian organization that aims to create equitable opportunity by providing clean and safe water, education and sustainable farming. It also provides humanitarian support through Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Built With Bitcoin has previously completed many humanitarian projects, including a South African education center in collaboration with Bitcoin Ekasi. A ferry was built for an El Salvador school that had no access before that, and a Nigerian well project that provided clean water to over 1,000 villages in Nigeria. Nessary spoke out about the importance of providing education access for the community. Education is also key to protecting vulnerable communities and teaching people how Bitcoin can help them and their families through entrepreneurship and financial inclusion. “Tagsterms”:Built with Bitcoin Foundationghana
