Wada In Action -August 2022 Edition

Wada Updates

The main driver of our 2022 success to date has been our Planting Roots in Africa project, which received Catalyst funding in Fund 6. This project enabled:

  • Shoring up our existing hubs in Ghana, Cameroon, DRC, Nigeria, and Cote D’ivoire

  • Starting emerging hubs in Ghana (second hub), Senegal, Burkina Faso & Gambia 

We got ONE big family

Our global, country hubs, collaborative and individual member projects have enabled us to reach in excess of 10k individuals, students, entrepreneurs and developers.

We completed and closed out 7 of our project catalyst work. We will bring you more details in future editions of our newsletter.


We completed and closed out 7 of our project catalyst work. We will bring you more details in future editions of our newsletter.

Our two main challenges at this point are how we retain the people we are onboarding into the blockchain and Cardano community and how we streamline our onboarding process at the hub level. We aim to address these challenges in our Fund9 Project Catalyst proposals.

Wada Ghana Hub:

The Africa Catalyst School was launched successfully in June and so far we have had 5 classes which are held every Tuesday at 17.UTC. Classes have centred on blockchain and its opportunities, Cardano Project Catalyst and how to become a Proposal Assessor. It was launched with 41 people on day 1 and this number keeps increasing.

The Ghana Hub in collaboration with Swarm, established the Catalyst Africa Town Hall. Meetings are ongoing biweekly with introduction of language breakout rooms - Arabic, Swahili, French and English.

Theatre For Change

Theatre For Change was a Project Catalyst funded proposal; an alternative method of learning using  sound, motions and gestures to communicate a message to a target audience. The Project has so far had a significant impact on students and made disseminating blockchain information easier for the students to understand, process and retain. Follow this link to our YouTube channel.
