Binance Charity Foundation launches lunch for children pilot in Uganda

The Binance Charity Foundation (BCF) has launched its pilot for its 'lunch for children' program in Uganda this week.

Following the announcement regarding the campaign back in January at the Binance Blockchain Week, Forbes announced that BCF along with their partner on the project, Dream Building Service Association (DBSA) started the initiative with privacy coin Zcoin assisting.

Zcoin COO Rueben Yap commented on the programme, saying that "this pilot is going to have an immense impact on the children and their families knowing they will have two meals a day."

While the current test pilot is small, Binance are set to expand to several other countries across Africa, with the eventual goal of being able to feed over one million people in developing countries.

BCF head Helen Hai also commented on the latest test pilot, saying that "African countries will most likely benefit in the fourth industrial revolution and blockchain is a technology that accelerates this process."

"For the massive unbanked population in countries like Uganda, underserved communities participating in this charity program grants them with a digital wallet as an access point to cryptocurrency so that the economic circulation within the community is available and further benefited from the initial introduction," Hai added.
