Enabling Children’s Education Via a Virtual Currency
It is estimated that more than 200 million children around the world are left behind without access to education, unable to reach their full learning potential. Enter Unicoin, a platform that allows you to exchange your drawing for a virtual currency that supports the right for every child to access early development and education.
Learning begins at birth. Singing songs. Painting pictures. Building with colorful bricks – these activities that sound like pure fun are the building blocks of lifelong learning. It can be anything that enriches the child’s environment from activity books to nutritious food, support to families, care and health services, protecting young children from conflict and violence, peer-led child-to-child learning initiatives, community-based programs and formal preschools. The Unicoin campaign stems from a partnership between H&M Conscious Foundation and UNICEF, initiated in 2014. When you contribute with a drawing of your future dreams, and exchange it for a Unicoin, H&M Conscious Foundation matches the Unicoin with one notebook and pencil, given to another child by UNICEF.
Unicoin is the first currency fueled by children’s imagination, dedicated to do good. The only way to get hold of a Unicoin is to exchange a drawing, together with a child. And the only way to spend it is on educational supplies. What are other ways we can encourage our children to do good by inspiring them to get involved with charitable organizations at an early age?
