Cardano's IOHK collaborated with EBU to improve access to education in Africa.

Input-Output In order to provide more educational opportunities to students in African countries, HK partnered with the European Business University of Luxemburg.

Input-Output HK, the company behind Cardano (ADA), has teamed up with the European Business University of Luxemburg (EBU). Their mission is to make education more “accessible, inexpensive, and equitable” in poor African countries.

Cardano's New African Projects

Input-Output HK (IOHK), a research and development group, established a relationship with the European Business University of Luxemburg (EBU) earlier this week:

“IOHK and the European Business University of Luxemburg have formed a fresh and interesting partnership.”

The education company now works with over 36 international organizations and educates 2,000 students in Africa. As a result, IOHK would want to provide training programs and further educational projects on the continent. Local kids would get free access to instructional materials as a result of the agreement.

EBU will enroll in a certificate program at the university. Students would only pay a €10 commitment fee instead of tuition. The university will offer courses in Plutus and Haskell, two Cardano smart contract platforms.

Cardano, for its part, recently drew the attention of the cryptocurrency community when the dollar value of its native token hit an all-time high of roughly $3. On-chain statistics from social media networks even verified that ADA was the most talked-about digital asset in the previous several days.

Cardano's reach has already extended to Ethiopia and Tanzania.

Cardano, a popular DLT project, teamed up with Ethiopia's Ministry of Education in April to work on a blockchain-based national ID system.

The Atala PRISM will be used to power the network. It should make it possible to create secure records of “educational performance for 3,500 schools, 5 million students, and 750,000 teachers, offering all students verified digital certificates and improving social mobility.”

Shortly after, the blockchain project expanded to the African continent. IOHK and World Mobile collaborated on a project to use Cardano's network to provide digital identities, mobile internet access, and financial acceptance to Tanzanian communities.

Micky Watkins, CEO of World Mobile, lauded the organization's mission along with their IOHK partners:

“World Mobile has created a network based on a new relationship between people and connectivity, in which ownership, governance, and identification work together to empower the user and provide access to all in a sustainable manner.”
