Monthly Reports

It has been a busy month! Developer mentee Michael Ochara has hit a great stride and is delivering great work alongside lab mentor Darlington Kofa. Two more developer mentees are in the interview process now. Darlington is trialing a newly developed, more structured approach to the mentorship, which so far is working out well. Lab lead Stephanie took a trip to visit the lab in person. It was a fruitful visit making in-person connections with the Kenya team. While there we met with another Project Catalyst funded project DirectEd, and are working on possible partnerships with the lab. The translation team continues work on written and audio article translations in Swahili. The marketing and outreach team completed a PA training course with 6 new PA recruits. Looking forward to seeing what they are able to accomplish as PAs in Fund 10!

We have interviewed 2 new candidates for developer mentorship at the lab. New mentees will start mentorship work with Darlington when the selection process is complete in the next few weeks. Outreach officers at the lab have recruited a team of 3 newcomers to train in on how to serve as PAs for Project Catalyst F10. They are using a new FREE PA training curriculum that was just developed by Lido Nation and published at blockchainlearning.center. The team participated in leading a global learning seminar about blockchain and Cardano with "United People Global" unitedpeople.global – a global community of learners who want to make the world a better place. The seminar was well attended and well received! It was recorded, but we are still waiting to get a copy of the recording, so we can hopefully share it later. The seminar took place in early September. Project Lead Stephanie King is travelling from Minnesota, USA to to Lab in Nairobi next week, to work with the lab crew in-person, and start planning for the future of the lab! This trip is funded out of Stephanie's personal funds, not Project Catalyst, but it is nevertheless an exciting opportunity to strengthen Cardano's community across continents!
