[IMPACT]

Establish an Africa Catalyst School to be run by a joint team of experts from the main Catalyst School, Africa Catalyst Community Experts and Cardano Ambassadors who have the knowledge and experience to provide high quality onboarding services. It is expected that an Africa oriented Catalyst onboarding team can sustain the momentum that will be generated by the proposed Catalyst Africa Town Hall among the youth in the local communities.

Given the large proportion of youth in Africa,( Almost a billion people below 35 years as at 2020) the continent provides a huge opportunity for the rapid expansion and adoption of Cardano and Catalyst. A lot more effort must therefore be expended to engage Africa more effectively.

Most newcomers to Project Catalyst have experienced the challenge of understanding the entire Cardano and Catalyst framework and how it operates. To participate effectively in any role whether CA, vCA, Proposer etc. newbies must adopt an intentional approach to navigate the various online platforms and channels of communication and integrate into the community.

The Catalyst School has been very active in onboarding new people onto Cardano and Catalyst however, Africa’s participation in the Catalyst School’s activities is quite low for a couple of reasons including:

- Many people in Africa have absolutely no knowledge of Cardano and Catalyst

- A large francophone community (141 million people and growing) and Arabic speaking community (140 million people) which is largely not engaged

- People struggle to understand some live and recorded sessions because they are unfamiliar with the spoken accent of presenters

As a solution to these challenges, the Africa Catalyst School will provide the following:

- Outreach to the youth in tertiary institutions, workers and business owners to promote and raise awareness of Cardano and Catalyst;

- Provide onboarding to new entrants through:

o Live and recorded localized sessions facilitated by Africans in English and French for a start and eventually in Arabic. The emphasis is on having Africans facilitate the sessions to eliminate the challenge of poor understanding due to differences in spoken accent.

  • Prepared courses on all the topics currently handled by the main Catalyst School ie. Introduction to Cardano Blockchain and Catalyst, How to be a Community Advisor, How to be a Veteran Community Advisor, How to be a Voter etc.
  • The Africa Catalyst School will provide additional courses as follows:

(a) How to navigate the Cardano.ideascale.com website

(b) Brainstorming and Q&A sessions – These sessions will aim at gathering and sharing ideas on challenges peculiar to Africa so participants can use them as a launchpad for writing future proposals.

(c) How to turn an idea into an effective proposal on ideascale

Given the huge potential for the growth and expansion of Cardano and Catalyst in Africa, an Africa oriented Catalyst school will yield tremendous results.

Internet connectivity is the main challenge that could affect the successful delivery of this initiative. The target group, the youth, may find the cost of internet data expensive and may not fully participate as expected.

[FEASIBILITY]

Given the scope of work to be done we anticipate that the Africa Catalyst School may extend beyond one funding cycle. For the first 3-month cycle however, we will focus on the following:

Month 1: Conduct live sessions in English once a week:

The first week will be dedicated to localizing and adapting existing course materials to the African context as well as preparing content for new courses.

Week 2: Introduction to Blockchain, Cardano and Catalyst

Week 3: How to navigate the Cardano.ideascale.com website

Week 4: How to be a Community Advisor

These sessions will be conducted only in English and will not be uploaded on any social media channel because they will be the ‘guinea pig’ sessions which will be used to fine tune subsequent sessions. We intend to obtain relevant feedback from participants on whether the content of sessions have been localized enough for the African context, whether the sessions provide adequate information and guidance to participants for their smooth onboarding among others.

Month 1 will also be used to prepare for the French sessions which will be launched in the subsequent months. To prepare for these sessions, feedback from the English sessions will be captured and incorporated into content for the French sessions and content will be translated.

Month 2: Conduct live sessions once a week, with breakout rooms in English and French

The same topics handled during month 1 sessions will be repeated in month 2. These will

however be improved sessions because they will incorporate the feedback we received from the

earlier sessions. One live session will be conducted each week, with breakout rooms in English

and French. Courses for month 2 are:

Week 1: Introduction to Cardano Blockchain and Catalyst

Week 2: How to navigate the Cardano.ideascale.com website

Week 3: How to be a Community Advisor

Week 4: Brainstorming and Q&A session

These sessions will be uploaded on YouTube to help other new entrants

Month 3: Conduct the following live sessions once a week in English

Week 1: How to be a Veteran Community Advisor

Week 2: How to be a Voter

Week 3: Brainstorming and Q&A session

Week 4: How to turn an idea into an effective proposal on ideascale

The courses will go through a similar fine tuning process to improve on them and translate them into French for delivery in the next funding cycle.

We anticipate that a minimum of 25 people will participate in every session with numbers growing as the sessions progress.

  • Localization and adaptation of existing course materials/preparation of materials for new courses for 6 topics in English - 18hours *16= $1,080
  • Localization and adaptation of existing course materials/preparation of materials for new courses for 6 topics in French - 18 hours * 60 =$ 1,080
  • Delivery of 11 live sessions in both English and French - 17 * 60 = $ 1,020
  • Translation cost - $3,500
  • Internet Cost - $1,500
  • Publicity & networking - $500
  • Administrative Cost - $2,000

For the Africa Catalyst School to be a success there is a need for collaboration, hence a group of people from all over with the key aim for the success of Catalyst come together to get this going

[AUDITABILITY]

The key indicators for measuring the progress of the project will be the number of courses

localized and/or developed, the number of live sessions held as per the proposal and the number

of participants recorded for every session.

In month 1, we expect that three courses will be localised and/or prepared, 3 live sessions will be

conducted with a minimum of 20 participants in attendance at each session.

In month 2, we anticipate that four live sessions will be conducted with English and French

breakout rooms and with a minimum of 25 candidates in attendance. Also, 3 additional courses

will be localized in English

In month 3 we expect to have four live sessions, all in English with a minimum of 30 participants.

Therefore, our milestones and success definition are:

  • Learning content created for the School sessions and workshops.
  • 20 School sessions and workshops hosted

<u>Success metrics</u>

We will track the success of this project by measuring the:

  • Total number of community members who get involved with the Catalyst School.
  • Number of proposers joining the sessions and workshops.
  • Number of CAs joining the sessions and workshops.
  • Number of vCAs joining the sessions and workshops.
  • Number of 1-to-1 supports provided to community members.
  • Number of new referees
  • Number of new voters

Ce projet de créer une école africaine sur la blockchain cardano est très pertinent. Il permettra au continent de se familliariser avec le système et son fonctionnement. Les africains peuvent eux même aider à améliorer le système en soulevant des problèmes que cardano pourrait résoudre et améliorer considérablement la vie des aficains. Un des principaux problème en Afrique est la traçabilité et la corruption. Le système cardano peut véritablement aider à résoudre ces problèmes.

The Africa Catalyst School project is an awesome and worth intriguing one that has really caught my attention. The proposed solution as outlined in the proposal is to facilitate and help educate so many Africans on the opportunities that project catalyst provides.

In the proposal, you will realize that the proposers laid the foundation that "newcomers to Project Catalyst have experienced the challenge of understanding the entire Cardano and Catalyst framework and how it operates." To solve this problem, they proposed that in order to participate effectively in any role whether CA, vCA, Proposer etc. newbies must adopt an intentional approach to navigate the various online platforms and channels of communication and integrate into the community. This I believe is commendable. It will help bring out the best to always assess and participate in the project's activities.

One aspect that also caught my attention was the fact that Africa’s participation in the Catalyst School’s activities is quite low for a couple of reasons including:

  • Many people in Africa have absolutely no knowledge of Cardano and Catalyst

  • A large francophone community (141 million people and growing) and Arabic speaking community (140 million people) which is largely not engaged

  • People struggle to understand some live and recorded sessions because they are unfamiliar with the spoken accent of presenters (These were from the proposal)

A comprehensive solution is therefore needed to be able to enhance education and empower so many people to do their best in the catalyst environment.

The proposal is an idea to build a Catalyst school in Africa, which can provide Catalyst knowledge as well as Cardano blockchain knowledge to university students, workers, business owners. Helping Catalyst get more proposals from the African community, helping the ecosystem grow as well as Africa. Language barriers, internet connection are the main reasons why there are not really many proposals from Africa. Therefore, the proposal is a perfect fit for the "Grow Africa, Grow Cardano" challenge.

Onboarding and engaging the youth (below the ages of 30 years) in Catalyst activities to boost the adoption of Cardano in the African continent is indeed a problem in the challenge that needs to be solved. The initiative of the main Catalyst School was a great step in the direction of solving this problem and the community has already experienced the great impact it has made across. Expanding this initiatives to Africa is still a great solution that addresses the targeted problem and even scales to address future problems. The mentioned KPIs in this proposal directly align with the challenge the fund goals as well and therefore, I strongly agree to the impact level of this proposal.

The challenge setting has been explicitly explained. The Proposal also explains how they plan to deal with the challenge with their aligned solutions. The Proposal follows the campaign as there is the objective to increase the Cardano African community and the African community in general. This helps develop the ecosystem. The challenge setting has been well addressed.

The 'Grow Africa, Grow Cardano' challenge aims to increase Cardano awareness in Africa, and this proposal clearly demonstrates that intention. Having an African school that includes locals has a significant local impact since it will reach a large number of Africans who will be involved because they understand what the outreach is about and will go a long way to ensure that Cardano is the blockchain of choice in Africa by 2023. This proposal might potentially be a long-term initiative in Africa, capturing a significant portion of a significant emerging market. As a result, I am convinced that this proposal effectively addresses the problem.

The impact of the Africa Catalyst School is immense, as it precisely aligns with the Grow Africa, Grow Cardano initiative, in supporting young Africans, exploring the world of blockchain. Out of the many proposals I have reviewed, this project, I believe, has the perfect implementation plan and vision to scale Cardano and Catalyst in the continent. It was a brilliant idea by the team to keep its focus on the intended vision of Cardona. Indeed the exposure of Cardona to Africans is minimal. Therefore, when trying to control the market in a new business environment, it is imperative to get the support of experienced experts in the Cardano and Catalyst ecosystem, and this is where the Africa Catalyst School comes in with the win for Cardano. Detailed solutions listed in the proposal provide a step-by-step guide to the project innovation and the risks run into on the main Cardona platform. The proposal answers these identified challenges, factoring that into the solutions presented in the project. For instance, the proposers identified that on the main Cardano platform, accent differences restrict understanding by many Africans, hence the proposed solution to localise courses and sessions. However, the proposal lacks the relevant key metrics that are indicators of a company’s growth and impact in an ecosystem/ industry. It does not include any measure post project implementation.

Impact This proposal seeks to educate the youth in Africa and bringing them onboard as a great way of expanding the Cardano Ecosystem and bringing fresh ideas onboard for the Catalyst. I believe this proposal has the ability to engage a large number of the youth in Africa to promote and raise awareness of Cardano and the Catalyst. It will provide a platform for the provision of great ideas and proposals for the subsequent catalyst funding cycles as well as veteran community and community adviser roles. I suggest the inclusion of incentives to get the youth in Africa to participate.

I personally think the idea in this proposal is an excellent and brilliant one. It clearly aligns with the challenge and I think funding this proposal will bring a tremendous impact on the cardano ecosystem. The solution to the problem stated in the proposal is a very good one, providing Africa with a catalyst school will go a long way to help seed and grow cardano in Africa since it will help onboard new members into cardano and having new members in catalyst means having people participating effectively in roles in catalyst like community advicers, veteran community advicers,proposers and others. Establishing a catalyst school in Africa will help people get more insight about cardano and it's blockchain based on the topics the team stated to be taught,in the proposal.

Yes, it did. Organising outreach by local volunteers in our Tertiary Institutions will increase awareness &knowledge to new on-board members about Cardano/Catalyst in African. This will eliminate the challenge of poor understanding which hinders active participation of African in Cardano blockchain as a result of differences in spoken accent. Assessing the Course outline with use of local Facilitators, training will be more interactive which will weigh Participants understanding level during & after the training . Again, Participants' capabilities/abilities can be identified which will ensure efficiency in nominating roles or rankings in Cardano/Cstalyst system. Courses stated such as Navigating Cardano Ideascale, Brainstorming, Ideas into Effective proposal etc, will impact hugely to the growth n expansion of Cardano/Catalyst in Africa Continents

Tapping into the youth of such a large populace could really take Cardano to exponential mass adoption in a matter of no time. Giving these kids the time, effort, and guidance they need could bring the entire continent out of poverty. This project is what this challenge, and catalyst itself, is all about!

Very good proposal , the content is clear and all has been very well explained. Considering the plan on how the team looks at executing this course is just amazing and I think this really look promising for the cardano ecosystem in Africa , the strategy also involved in bringing the youth on board is very brillant and I commend this team for the good job done. The fact that the team looks at handling this courses in other languages is a brilliant idea and I totally agree to this proposal, the proposal has the high potential of bearing fruits in the future , so I would say the proposal is very good .

: The challenge and the problem presented in this proposal are aligned. The proposal seeks to outreach to the youth in tertiary institutions, workers and even business owners to promote and raise awareness of cardano and catalyst especially in Africa where most people have low or no knowledge about blockchain. This will also provide new entrants with onboarding through live and recorded localized sessions guided by Africans in English and French at first, and thereafter in Arabic. The importance of having Africans facilitate the sessions in order to eliminate the problem of poor comprehension due to spoken accent.

In Africa they are not involved in the Cardano program. The intention is to set up a Catalyst school where people from Africa can participate. By establishing local communities, people will be able to take the step more quickly to participate in this project. The project will have an impact on people who speak French, English and Arabic. By recording the live session in French, a community of 149 million people is addressed. The proposal includes challenges for which a solution has been found immediately. (language, outreach youth,…) This project can certainly have a major impact on Cardano if the community grows in the long term and perhaps the people who have had the training can also work more on the expansion of the project.

Cardano has been devoting a lot of resources to community development in Africa, which is Cardano's key market in the near future. The establishment of The Africa Catalyst School is a very necessary thing at this time because it will give newcomers the opportunity to access to learn and participate in the Cardano community and they will see the opportunities to start a business with Catalyst. The Africa Catalyst School will be the incubator for Cardano's young talents in the Africa region. The successful proposal will help the Cardano community in Africa to expand, especially Cardano will be present in the French and Arabic speaking communities. This will be a solid foundation for Cardano in Africa in the future.

The intentions of this proposal are communicated in a solid manner. To recreate the catalyst onboarding educational material in a manner that local people in certain African communities can understand and apply to stimulate the 100's of millions of young people on board and become active participants in the Cardano ecosystem is the crux of this proposal. I recognize that a risk involved in this project is one of internet connectivity and it would be helpful if the proposer would give some detailed insight as to how they intend on managing this risk. This is an important detail as it plays a significant role in this project's potential to scale in order to reach the majority of the under 35 years of age demographic that was referenced in the proposal.

The budget of this proposal sounds reasonable and well broken down into deliverable items. However, it is identified in this proposal that the main challenge that could hinder a successful implementation is internet connectivity. It further explains that the target group which is the youth, may find the cost of internet data expensive and may not fully participate as expected. Unfortunately, an alternative solution to this potential challenge was not provided in this proposal and I find $1500 being allocated for internet cost in the budget breakdown not clear to me as to whether it is for the participants internet issues or the facilitators. I think it would have been helpful if the team had provided information on how they intend to tackle the potential challenge stated in this proposal. The roadmap being described carefully adds to the feasibility of this proposal. Anyways, the experience of the team described in the proposal together with all I have said above makes me agree that this proposal can be implemented successful if funded.

  • The tasks that need to be done are listed here, presented in detail so that the CA can evaluate the feasibility. This is a plus for the feasibility of the project.
  • The budget division is clear for the cost of each stated job, it is possible to estimate whether the budget can be afforded or not. => good points
  • The members all have experience participating in Catalyst with many different roles, which will help bring Catalyst to the African community more => good point

However, one point I would like to add to the proposal is how it is proposed to include plans for reaching out to business owners or workers. Because I consider these people difficult to reach, a detailed plan is needed.

The proposer is one who has shown over the period her knowledge and expertise in block chain specifically Cardano and has the necessary abilities to carry out the plan. The proposer also knows the kind and number of team members needed to carry out the plan especially with the addition of a bilingual member to her team and gives a budget that is broken down, and acceptable in order to meet the established objectives. The proposal also includes a realistic timeframe for completing the work, as well as a clear and actionable implementation strategy that demonstrates what is being done and how it is being done. The proposer has taken into account the challenges that may arise during implementation. Hence, problem solution listed has a high chance being implemented successfully.

The team running this project are mostly experienced members in the Cardano/Catalyst ecosystem. I think this gives the project a head start over others, to precisely nail the implementation process. Aside from that, the team could have included additional information or links to profiles providing more information about themselves, other than their affiliation with Cardano for transparency. In the implementation phase, it's great that the team is not research centred in the 3 months time frame stated, but rather goes full test implementation with the project. The descriptions provided after the weekly and monthly plan breakdown captures additional information and that's a plus for the team. Also, it's very realistic of the team to limit its target audience to 20 - 25 new entrants (Africans) as it steadily scales up. What I didn't quite understand was where the intended participants for the first month were from since there would be no uploads on social media. Perhaps a distinction in whether or not already existing African members on the Cardano platform will be used for a said test run. Again for the subsequent months, there is no mention of how the company plans to get these 25 new entrants from, i.e mode of entry into the African market. For the budget breakdown, I think it captured all the necessary costs well and the funding requested for phase one is very realistic.It includes costs for every initiative mentioned in the solutions. This team is definitely ready to help Cardano venture into the African digital marketplace.

The team has amazing credentials that, if given the proper funding, I believe would serve to making the world a better place. I would go the extra step and hire a marketing direct that focuses specifically on the target audience as to help grow the awareness that this program exists. I would also like to see research into how other funding could be leveraged to grow this project even faster.

With the kind of people presented as the team in the proposal,I have no doubts that this project will be implemented if funded. From the proposal, I realized that, almost all the team are active members of the cardano community. some are community advicers, veteran community advicers, proposers and proposal mentors. Also,this project if funded is going to be implemented in collaboration with the main catalyst school. All these people are familiar with the cardano blockchain and I think this proposal is highly feasible. Again the information provided in the proposal about the team is very detailed and to me,they are capable of handling the project. Lastly,the time frame and budget is clearly laid out,and it makes a great deal of sense to me, considering the fact that,they will be working on establishing a catalyst school. Preparation of materials, delivery of live sessions, internet cost and publicity and networking and others are well catered for with reasonable amounts in the budget.

These observations made in the Challenge seem to me the possibility of the Ptoject; A well structured Course outline stared. Participants feedbacks will be taken to weigh knowledge grained as well as their satisfaction and to rate Facilitators performance. Vivid understanding asduredhere as Courses will be handled by Local Volunteers with familiar spoken accent Fourthly, 3months Course duration stated, indicating how qualitative & intensive it will be in achieving the main goal of activeness of African in Cardano/Catalyst system. Budget is well detailed & sprkt out clearly to be monitored. Lastly, notwithstanding, the Profiles of supported Team Members, show how rich they are in knowledge & experience. Hence, the Project can be implemented successfully.

Experienced team members are present in the proposal. A few people have been CA of the previous funds for a long time. The other people on the team have relevant experience with blockchain technology and community startup. A budget overview has been drawn up in which the costs such as translation costs and internet costs are clearly described. There is also a planning available stating what will happen in these 3 months. It is good that all the topics per week are already described in this planning. It is good that the people have the opportunity to get the session in English at the same time. It will certainly be enough to organize 1 session every week to get started. It might be useful to offer an extension session per session for people who want this. It has been taken into account that there will have to be good cooperation all over the world to make this project a success.

I strongly agree with the feasibility of this project. The timeline goals are solid as are the credentials of the team put forth. The budget request is reasonable. Perhaps the budget is a bit too tight but having the experience of this first cycle should reveal the realities of that concern.

With the experience and skills of Afia Owusu, Felix Weber, etc. and other team members, I believe that this proposal will also be successful. This is a strong team, including many veteran members, who have contributed a lot to the Cardano community in the past time. In addition to the internet connection that will affect the success of the project, I think you also need to prepare a plan for other risks for example: Power failure will also affect sharing sessions, too few people. interested or too few people know about this project, what will you do to attract them?

Every project success largely depends on how the proposer's work can be audited. From this proposal, one can see that there is adequate information providedto fully audit the progress and success of the first the project when entrusted with the funds. There is also, the milestones provided to evaluate the success of the project which I think is commendable.

Ce projet ne peut pas échouer si le plan est suivi normalement, à mon avis ce projet dois être financé dans le long terme, car plus cardano sera connu et apprécié en Afrique, plus cardano pourrait être adopté et utilisé par tout un continent.

Milestones with metrics outlined in the proposal are appropriate for measuring success. One point I would agree more with the proposer if it is possible to add the links to the individual profile pages of each member (linkedin, twitter, github, etc) for voting and advisors community can be easily track and evaluated

This proposal provides the community with clear indicators that could be used to measure the progress of it during the implementation stage. The proposal, as clearly as it is written, provides the community with clear timeline and milestones that can be measured to assess its progress towards the mentioned goals by anybody who chances on this proposal. But the only thing I feel to be excluded from this proposal is a link or a directive to the main platform (YouTube, website, discord, telegram, etc.) where the mentioned metrics can be measured. Therefore I only agree that this proposal provides me with sufficient information to assess the progress of it towards the said goals.

There is much information in the proposal to track the proposal's process and the success. The key metrics have been well stated and can be looked at in the course of the project. With the schedule drawn also there is no doubt that the proposal can be tracked at any time in the process to know the progress of the proposal.

The key indicators for measuring the progress as well as the success metrics are clearly stated and are understandable and achievable. The proposal includes a time frame for completion and also includes a clear explanation of the targeted problem, as well as a solution that solves the problem in a comparable manner. Thus, the information provided is sufficient to audit the progress and the success of the proposal.

The team failed to include an open tracking system and that limits the auditability of the project. No mention of progress reports or other public auditing tools to check milestones and traction gathered by the team. Although, they did mention the necessary KPIs to measure the growth in the scheduled time frame. There is a detailed system by the team to measure success; number of proposers joining sessions, number of new voters and referees amongst others. The team should however work on a separate method of communication between them the Cardano community not limited to who joins a session or not.

The auditability of this proposal is very complete. There are KPls needed to understand if the project is achieving what it intends to achieve. The team clearly describes in details what success will look like,so we have many live sessions to monitor if the Africa catalyst school is established. Lastly,I think the community itself is involved in this project since we have a good number of CAs,VCAs,proposers and even the main catalyst school in collaboration with the team. I very much believe success will be auditable and well measured.

The only note I could add to this amazing proposal is to reach out to the Cardano ecosystem through social media and/or videos showing the results of the team's hard work. I believe that with enough advertisement, more people would be willing to donate to bring better funding to your system. Kudos to the entire team, I look forward to seeing you guys help Africa become a land of free, happy, and healthy people!

Course outline details below; Mth.1 -3 live sessions with minimum participants of 20 in English /French Mth.2 -4 live sessions in English/French at breakout rooms with participants increased to 25, minimum & 3 additional sessions in English only. Mth.3 -4 sessions, all in English with participants increased to 30, minimum Analysing the details of the 3mths course/training duration, indicates increases in participants. Hence, new on-board members will increase as a result of understanding the navigating of the Ideascale Cardano ecosystem which will also lead to increase & more quality Proposal, causing efficiency in CA/VCA assessment, making the Voters' more easier &time saving. All these informations above show the sufficiency to audit the progress and the success of this Proposal.

With the provision of the key metrics on how this project would be a success when funded has not be left out by the team, and there is the high potential that when this proposal is funded it would be something big for the cardano ecosystem in Africa, all I can say is that the proposal is excellent and the team is well prepared for this, keep it up for your next proposals

A list of the contents of the sessions has been provided. The main indicators are specified in the proposal such as the number of courses, the number of participants. I think it would also be good to make some sort of test about the sessions that makes it clear that the content has been understood. In this way it can be seen whether certain sessions need to be done again or whether they need to be tackled differently. Success statistics are included in the proposal. I wonder what will happen if 15 people drop out during the projects. It might be better to keep a kind of reserve list from which other people can possibly join. The project aims at 20 school sessions and learning content that can be used in workshops. This project can be a good start to get local communities involved in the Cardano community. By offering these sessions in different languages with the target group Africa, this can be a stepping stone to later apply such learning platforms in more areas.

: From the impact and feasibility, the problem is clearly defined and addressed hence the solution aligned with the problems. The project's development and success can be monitored using the proposer's own metrics hence the information provided is enough to audit the success of this proposal.

The route you gave me is also very complete and clear. I completely believe in your ability to accomplish the goals you have set out. In addition, with the amount of $10,680, you were also very transparent and clear in the use of this money. I think you need to be more specific in terms of numbers so that it can be easily measured. Example: How many members will join Catalyst School, How many will become CA, vCA or how many new referees will be. I believe that if you can give specific and complete numbers, the community will appreciate it even more.
