Bitcoin Dada is a women-centric entity working towards onboarding African women into Bitcoin through education. It was founded to try to resolve three issues in the ecosystem: first, to reduce the knowledge barriers for everyday women to enter the Bitcoin world; second, to make bitcoin relatable to the masses; lastly, to narrow the gender divide in this space through education, community, and social network platforms.
We hope to create a network of well-wishers to further grow our reach to women not easily accessible via normal platforms, in women-only education centers, rural communities, SMEs, university students, and those in low-income communities, across the African continent.
Bitcoin education can provide several benefits to women, including financial empowerment and increased access to financial services. By learning about the technology behind it and how to use it, African women can gain greater control over their finances and be more independent. Additionally, its decentralized nature enables anyone with an internet connection to use it, making it accessible to African women in areas with limited traditional banking services. Finally, it can provide opportunities for African women to participate in the growing Bitcoin economy as investors, entrepreneurs, and developers.
The goal is to expand the reach of Bitcoin by holding more meetups, increasing enrollment in online courses, promoting Bitcoin circular economies, creating educational resources for the general public, and creating a comprehensive website for Bitcoin Education
Since inception, we've successfully trained 4 cohorts of students with 50 graduating, held bitcoin-only meet-ups in Nairobi, Kenya, helped some students start accepting bitcoin as a payment option in their businesses, and recommended students to bitcoin companies for employment.

We are currently onto our fourth class with a growing community. Bitcoin Dada is the first and currently, the only organization in Africa focused on women's success in this space. Help us keep the vision alive. Love from an African woman with a Bitcoin dream
In order to continue our efforts to onboard African women into the world of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Dada is seeking support from individuals and organizations who share our vision. Funds received will go towards, meet up, supporting the incoming cohort, translating the content to Swahili, and the graduation ceremony for the third cohort. Your contribution will go a long way in ensuring that more African women have access to Bitcoin education and are able to benefit from its many advantages.
