バックストーリー

ケニアで長く運営され成功しているNGOと協力して、私たちはカルダノのエコシステムに焦点を当てた若いケニア人専門家の小さなチームを結成しました。彼らはCardanoオンボーディングコンテンツのスワヒリ語翻訳と、lidonation.comのブロックチェーン開発業務に従事しています。

開発チームは、有償のメンターシッププログラムでDarlingtonの指導を受けています。彼らは間もなく、サイトの古典的なプログラミングに貢献するだけでなく、私たちの差し迫ったコミュニティトークン発売(lidonation.com/phuffycoin)のためのスマートコントラクトを書くのを手伝う予定です。

翻訳とコンテンツのチームはステファニーが率いています。彼らの仕事は、私たちがProject Catalyst Fund 6で受けた資金によって可能になったものです。彼らは、カルダノの基本をカバーする既存のLidoNation.comの記事数十本をスワヒリ語に翻訳し、音声録音を作成している。これによって、アフリカの多くの新参者がカルダノの簡単なコンテンツにアクセスできるようになる。さらに、彼らはスワヒリ語でカルダノに関するオリジナルのコンテンツを書く予定です(英語の翻訳付き)。 私たちは、アフリカの読者によって、またアフリカの読者のために、スワヒリ語で書かれた新しいカルダノのコンテンツに非常に興奮しています。

ケニアチームの成功と信頼できるインターネット接続へのアクセスは、私たちのNGOパートナーであるNgong Road Children's Foundationが、プログラムの学生が勉強したり契約作業をしたりするための図書館を提供してくれたおかげです。

ビッグアイデア

私たちは、ケニアのナイロビにンゴン・ロード・カルダノ・ラボを設立することを提案します。この提案は、既存の教育ハブを追加して専用のワークステーションを確保し、カルダノ・ブロックチェーン開発者の指導プログラム、およびコミュニティ・アウトリーチ担当者を支援するものです。

ラボ

私たちは5台のコンピュータを備えたラボを構想しており、Cardanoのインフラを稼働させ、開発者の作業やトレーニングを促進するために専用に使用する予定です。LIDO Nationはすでに2人の大学新卒者を指導しており、彼らに2台のコンピュータを提供しています。今回の資金提供により、さらに3台購入することができ、さらに3人の若い開発者を迎えるためにメンタープログラムを拡張することができます。 将来のメンティーのコホートは、これらの最初の、「ベテラン」コホートによって指導され、訓練されることになります。メンタープログラムの間、研修生はカルダノネットワーク上で開発を行うためのノウハウを学びます。彼らは、カルダノのアーキテクチャを使って、さまざまなビジネス上の問題を解決することを学びます。

取り扱うアーキテクチャの一部 :

Dbsync リレーノード GraphQL ハスラ オグミオ ウォレットバックエンド Plutusアプリケーションバックエンド PostgreSQL プロメテウス

ミートアップ

メンタープログラムに加え、私たちはチームのメンバーが毎月のコミュニティミートアップやイベントをリードできるようにする予定です。現在、カルダノの教育コンテンツをスワヒリ語に翻訳しているケニア人チームは、これを行うのに適しています!彼らは翻訳をしながらコンテンツを学び、深く関わっており、地元の専門家となって、学んでいることを他の人と共有することができます。この提案では、2人のパートタイムの地域支援担当者に資金を提供します。毎月のミートアップに加え、コミュニティ支援担当者はオフィスアワーを開催し、ソーシャルメディアプラットフォームのスワヒリ語カルダノチャンネルに参加・開設する予定です。 デベロッパーメンターシップチームのラボメイトも、この取り組みに参加することを推奨します。

場所

エリム・ハブは、ンゴン・ロード・チルドレンズ財団(NRCF)が主導するエキサイティングな新しいプロジェクトです。NRCFは、教育機会のないケニアの若者たちに教育の機会を提供しています。エリムとは、スワヒリ語で「教育」を意味します。Elimu Hubプロジェクトでは、最新のテクノロジーツールを備えた新しい安全な空間を構築しています。ここでは、学校やNRCFのプログラムを卒業した若いプロフェッショナルが、継続的なトレーニングや仕事の機会を得て、教育を最大限に活用することができます。私たちは彼らと提携し、カルダノ・ブロックチェーンの教育と機会を、これらの若い卒業生とそのコミュニティが利用できるようにしています。https://ngongroad.org/latest-news/elimu-hub/

ビジョン

この資金提供の提案は、ケニアのナイロビにあるNgong Road Cardano Labを立ち上げ、9ヶ月間維持するものです。このラボは、より大きなカルダノのエコシステムとここに存在する機会を利用する方法を見つけることで、自立していくことが大きなアイデアの一部となっています。 同窓会からの寄付、雇用代理店によるプロジェクト管理モデル、ステークプールの運営など、すべて収益源として検討されています。

マイルストーン

3ヶ月のマイルストーンNgong Road Cardano Labには、5台の専用ワークステーション、2人の開発者インターン、2人のコミュニティ支援担当者がいます。最初のコミュニティイベントを開催し、今後も毎月イベントを開催する予定です。 6ヶ月のマイルストーン開発者インターンの第一期生がプログラムを卒業し、第二期生が始動しています。コミュニティイベントは毎月開催され、イベントの参加者やフィードバックに関する最新情報をカタリストコミュニティに報告しています。
9ヶ月のマイルストーンベテランメンチーは、継続的な開発者メンターシッププログラムをリードする準備を進めています。ラボは、Catalyst コミュニティやその他のカルダノエコシステムに関与しています。新しいパートナーシップや機会が、ラボの継続的な維持と成長のための資金となっています。

メトリクス

The problem identified in this proposal conforms with the challenge expectations. Keyan is a country in Africa where global adoption of blockchain technology needs to happen in order to help the local community solve some of the major issues they are facing. Creating a hub to mentor developers will add a lot of value to the local community as well as to the cardano ecosystem. The end game should be those developers being able to build dapps in the cardano ecosystem, that will solve problems that Africans are facing right now. Furthermore, the proposer has added key metrics that perfectly align with the challenge. I did not identify a scaling plan for future challenges, but in my opinion, there can be at least 2 ways to scale this proposal - one being replicating the same hub in other parts of the country, the other being enlarging the existing hub.

Impact:

The problem statement: Kenya is at the forefront of technological innovation, but Cardano remains largely unknown amongst the public and Developers in the region. To solve this issue the proposer has laid out a plan to introduce a Cardano Blockchain Lab in Kenya. This endeavor is designed to address the lack of awareness of Cardano in Kenya and will serve to bring our eco-system to the forefront of technological recognition in the region. The plan calls for working with successful Non-Government Organizations to form teams of young Kenyan professionals focused on the Cardano eco-system.
Demographic information: The project aims at onboarding new developers, translating Cardano content into Swahili and conducting blockchain development work hosted by lidonation.com a cardano-based stake pool (LIDO) and introductory website. This projects seeks to drive ground level adoption with a robust plan to conduct strong community outreach with active and beneficial onboarding of several recent college graduates. An Action plan: The proposers plan starts with acquiring computers used exclusively for running Cardano and facilitating mentorship, developer work and training. With the start of the mentorship program, the team then plans to form monthly meet ups run by two community outreach officers who will also host office hours and participate/establish Swahili Cardano channels on social media platforms. Part of the plan includes getting the Lab to become self-sustaining by find ways to tap into the Cardano eco-system and its opportunities. Things being explored include:

  1. Alumni donation
  2. Running a stake pool This proposal addresses the challenge to Scale-Up Cardano's Community Hubs by employing bold innovation combined with concrete planning to achieve its stated mission. I strongly agree that this proposal effectively addresses the challenge: ASSESSMENT SCORE 5.

This is a really incredible project that seeks to empower the local community in Kenya through a partnership with a well established community hub - Elimu Hub. The premise of this project is to provide the physical resources and education required to teach local community about Cardano and grow awareness about Cardano within a safe and nurturing environment.

The team have an array of experience and are already engaged in delivery of Swahili translation on Cardano. They will mentor 5 new Cardano developers and introduce many to the cardano ecosystem through community based events and workshops. The project is locally focussed in an impoverished area of Kenya, the scalability of this project might be possible through implementation of similar models and partnerships in other community spaces in slums across the world. To do so would require excellent documentation to build a case study of the impact of this project.

I think this proposal effectively addresses the challenge since it wants to create a hub/ lab in a NGO (Ngong Road) in Kenya to introduces and educate graduated students of this NGO about Cardano/ blockchain. Target community is good since fresh graduates are sensitive about technology. They can form a hub and sharing information with others.

Timeline, budget, team, resources are all fine. The only thing that makes me concern is the sustainability of the lab since it asks to be invested facilities ($11k for computer stations) but I don't see how to generate the lab's own money to continue operating after 9 months being funded.

The proposer has mentioned having experience in development and in blockchain technology, but failed to provide evidence such as a linkedin profile or even a previous work in that regard. I suggest to the proposer to add these information as they are really important to judge the feasibility of the project. Apart from that, the budget has been broken down into identifiable items. All the items needed to carry out this project have been outlined, but I'm not able to know the correctness of the prices stated. But, based on my sole intuition, I believe that the prices are correct. Furthermore, a timetable has been provided by the proposer. But I didn't identify, in this proposal, a plan in case additional funding is required. I suggest to the proposer to keep this in mind as the budget more than likely will never be exactly precise. Altogether, I have strong confidence, based on the informations outlined in this proposal, that the project can be successfully implemented.(Rating 4)

Feasibility: The proposer of this assessment uses a sound plan and expert regional knowledge to communicate a vision of success of this project.
Key Performance Indicators (KPIs): The project is already underway and if successful. The Hub launch in the next 6 months will be the first of its kind in Kenya. 5 developers are already standing by to be a part of the mentorship program. Once the current developers are trained, they will transition to management of the lab. This project has the backing of Friends of Ngong Road (FONR) a U.S. Based non-profit that does fundraising for NRCF and Ngong Road Children's Foundation. NCRF is a Kenya-based NGO that provides quality education opportunities to children affected by HIV/AIDS who live in the Dangoretti slums of Nairobi Kenya.
Karibu Techmates is a program sponsored by NRCF to help recent college graduates with technical skills access training and employment opportunities. The new Elimu Hub study center offers learning and job opportunities in the online economy. This project is working to become a strategic partner in this enterprise by developing a strong Cardano community outreach and development. This proposal could benefit from exposure to FONR/NCRF's large donor base thereby increasing the overall reach of the project. These well-established NGOs provide the needed credibility for this project. A Roadmap: The 3 Month goal is to have 5 Dedicated workstations, 2 developer interns, and 2 community outreach officers who would have hosted their first Community Event and are set to continue with monthly events. The 6 Month goal would see the first cohort of developers graduating from the program and the second cohort getting started with community events happening each month and reports to the Catalyst Community with updates on attendance and events feedback. The 9 Month goal calls for veteran Mentees leading ongoing developer mentorship programs with the lab engaged with the Catalyst Community. This would also spawn opportunities for new partnerships and funding for ongoing maintenance at this point.
Skill required to complete the project: The main people behind this project are: Darlington Wleh - a Dev/Ops Engineer with 3 years of experience who is described as having a deep understanding of cloud technologies, computer programming languages, and blockchain technologies. His profile is verifiable via LinkedIn.

Stephanie King does not have a professional profile so it is difficult if she has the skill, expertise or background in achieving the states goal. The Budget breakdown: The budget breakdown for this project is itemized and explained very well. It outlines costs for:

  1. Developer Mentees
  2. Computer Stations
  3. Website for the Lab
  4. Mentorship Director
  5. Community Outreach
  6. Office space, supplies, marketing, event hosting
  7. Cardano Hub Coordinator and Administration
  8. Internet usage
  9. Electricity. This cost breakdown is comprehensive and lends itself very well to establishing transparency and credibility with the Cardano Community. I agree that given the experience and plan presented it is highly likely this proposal will be implemented. ASSESSMENT SCORE 5

The community hub that this project team are partnering with have been based in this area since 2003 and have developed a long term vision for how they could benefit children and young people in this area through education and indeed, through providing hope for the future.

The team have a detailed plan to add on to the existing education hub and will have the support of a dedicated team with Cardano experience. The plan for executing this project is also really solid with budget to pay for the participation of the mentorship which will remove significant barriers for the young participants in this area and moreover will motivate and educate them to contribute as much as they can to the program in terms of their time and energy.

The timeframe, budget and overall program are really clearly laid out and make a great deal of sense considering the context that the team are working in. It provides for physical resources, stable internet access and support for community outreach and basic supplies.

Auditability: Because this project is still in its infancy, Key Performance Indicators have not yet fully developed. However, there is enough information between the road map and the detailed budget breakdown to follow the success of this project using these two documents to accurately the progress of the program. The program uses: • Developer Mentees - $4,500 Interns in the developer mentorship program are paid $250/month for a commitment of 30 hours/week • Computer Stations - $11,000 3 New Developer Workstations with capacity to run all of the the cardano architectural pieces: db-sync, a node, graphQL server, ogmios, hasura, a wallet backend and the plutus application backend. • Website for the Lab - $360 This would cover the cost to create a new website for the Ngong Road Cardano Lab in Nairobi Kenya, and to host the site for 1 year • Mentorship Director - $6,000 Darlington runs the mentorship program and spends 5 hours per week coaching the mentees in the program, including a 3hr pair programming session. Darlington is already mentoring 2 recent grads. He have also successfully mentored 3 students into full time software engineering positions at Yelp, electricbikereview.com and the Colorado Department of Game and Fishing (they are all still employed at the respective organizations). Community Events and Outreach • Community Outreach - $6,000 Pays for 2 Community Outreach officers in Kenya, plus Coordinator support from the Lido Nation Team. We will plan and host monthly meetups, office hours with community members who are interested in Cardano, and participate in Social Platforms to help create and grow Kenyan/Swahili content channels for Cardano. • Office Supplies, Space Rental, Marketing Enablement, Event Hosting - $2750 Pays for Zoom and MailChimp Subscriptions, Office Furniture and Supplies, and refreshments for monthly events. Utilities and Admin • Cardano HUB Coordinator and Administration - $3,200 Pays for Lido Nation and Elimu Hub staff to hire staff, coordinate objectives, plan for future revenue streams to sustain the lab beyond the 9 month launch. • Internet - $4033.00 This amount covers 60% of the cost of internet for the facility for 9 months. Getting good internet in Kenya is challenging and expensive; being able to help NRCF with this is key to reaching this region with blockchain tools! • Electricity - $412.00 This amount would cover 50% of the electricity bill for the facility for 9 months. The new Elimu Hub is being built to run on solar power! • I agree that The information provided is sufficient to audit the progress and the success of the proposal. ASSESSMENT SCORE 4

This is definately a project that could be improved by having ongoing profiling within Town Hall meetings to assist with the delivery and ensure the project remains on track. At this stage there is very little indicated in the proposal pertaining to how they would report back, however there seems to be a great interest in Cardano and this would present opportunites for exchanging ideas and inspiring more life changing projects such as this throughout the world. The KPI's and milestones are clear and measurable. The delivery dates are not specific however it's time based milestones to allow for project commencement to be in tune with the outcome of funding and likely a myriad other considerations for execution of a project of this nature.

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!

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!
