Africa Development Promise
At Africa Development Promise, we believe that collective action and enterprise are proven pathways for empowering rural women achieve their economic goals. In fragile rural economies, small, single-owned enterprises tend to fail because the individual cannot bear to take the risk alone. This is especially true for women who also lack access to inputs, training, credit and markets that they need to gain social and economic independence.

The Giving Block only equips registered charities to accept crypto donations. Because crypto is classified as property by the IRS (and many other tax agencies globally), in addition to a write off, you do not have to pay capital gains tax on donated crypto. Consult a tax professional to confirm specifics. Or contact us to be put in touch with one.

Why donate Bitcoin?
The Coronavirus shutdown is wreaking havoc on the economy worldwide. In developing countries like Rwanda and Uganda, where Africa Development Promise works to empower rural women farmers, the virus is just one of the many urgent issues that people face. Floods, droughts, and most recently swarms of locusts have also been a threat to post-harvest loss as well. With little or, no social safety nets to help them out the travel ban and stay in place policies are hitting the rural poor the hardest. The agricultural cooperatives that ADP supports, mainly grow horticultural crops which have a short shelf-life. Until now they have managed this potential risk with contracts with restaurants, hotels, and other markets. However, contracts with restaurants and hotels are on pause and with the travel ban, they are slow to get their products to markets leading to significant post-harvest losses. With the lack of resources being offered during this time for women in agriculture, ADP needs your help to bridge the gap and with the recovery once the economy re-opens.
