Charities today face a number of issues.

Among those, raising funds is getting more difficult and the process remains slow.

People’s trust in charities is at an all-time low due to concerns around misuse of funds, traceability of donations, security of data and financial crime. In addition, intermediary costs remain high.

The industry needs to attract the new generations to donate via modern channels and technology to facilitate small donations which become financially effective. With Blockchain technology combined with the use of social media, the reach becomes global and lowering fundraising costs to a minimum. In addition, Blockchain brings full traceability, transparency and the best level of security.

SmartBlock Technologies’ mission is to put new technologies at the service of humanity in order to build a better world. We have developed expertise in new technologies and have key members with experience in NGOs, charities and the environment.

In a partnership with the Monaco Better World Forum, we are proud to announce in grand premiere the creation of the Better World Coin that will help address the issues mentioned before. For that reason, Monaco Better World Forum nominated Alexandre Rigaud co-founder and CEO of SmartBlock Technologies a goodwill ambassador (Alexandre is a Serial-Entrepreneur and ex-Apple employee. Tech and business background. Self-taught on coding, programming, computer engineering since the age of 12. He is a member of the UAE Ministry of Youth Council). www.linkedin.com/in/arigaud

This is the rationale for having Ocean Impact Ambassadors, being able to learn from the Ocean, to share their enthousiam and keys for action, and to massively activate people so that to make sure effective change is happening.

The training session is a unique opportunity for change makers, network leaders and activators, to meet, learn and share their rationale and roadmap to act in a systemic way.
