Bridging Digital Communities
Kay @geleeroyale
I run a bridge server for chats (Discord, Telegram, Riot, ...) and am actively engaging communities connected to the Ethereum space. Especially with the advent of newDAOs my services are being requested on a regular basis. Most requested at the moment is bridging between community servers on Discord (both communities get to share a room), whereas before it was mostly mirroring rooms between different protocols. Once a bridge is up, it still needs to be maintained and I regularly check that everything is in working order. I never charge for these services, but I do accept donations (all Ethereum tokens) Current list of bridged communities:GivethThe Commons StackMetagameHackalong1hiveethereum.orgbalancer.ioAragoncadCADToken EngineeringToken Engineering CommonssourcecredRaid GuildDappNodebrightIDMetafactorydOrgMaticConsensysPanvalaGitcoinYearnDAOHausKshazuDAO Book ClubMol Le ArtETHLatamShenaniganSeeing EarthBoson Protocol

Update: Over 20 hours of our Solidity course is now online for free and has more than 30,000 views just on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDwI1rIhknpNyUWdFt_XD6rpTEjTkUcYoWe are working on the next cohort for Winter 2023. -------------------Dear Friends, in these past few months we have embarked on an unbelievable and extraordinary journey! Thanks to your support, we were able to educate over 500 Farsi speaking people about blockchain and smart contract coding (Solidity). Over a year ago, seven different women (now Women in Blockchain Farsi) living in different parts of the world heard about a scholarship for the ConsenSys Academy smart contract development course for Farsi-speaking women. This opportunity, organized by the non-profit educational organization “CoinIran”’s founder Bahar and Women in Blockchain’s Founder Thessy Mehrain (also ½ Iranian), was designed to teach all the fundamentals of smart contract development. All seven women who applied for this program successfully graduated the course.This indeed was huge for us. Participating in an international course, coming from Iran, enabled us to overcome some of the everyday challenges imposed on Iranian society. Words cannot describe how grateful we are for this opportunity! This opened new doors in the world of decentralized technology and blockchain. We were able to take on freelance coding projects and even participate in hackathons! Now we want to help others do the same and here is why:There is a general lack of resources and educational content in the native language of these regions, posing major obstacles to Farsi speaking communities when it comes to accessing finance and decentralized technology. The Farsi-speaking community has a population of more than 120 million, located in West Asia in Afghanistan, Tajikistan and Iran. Recently, the Taliban government in Afghanistan has banned all girls from schools and has even closed universities. Moreover, heavy sanctions imposed on Iranian citizens has limited them from accessing most social media platforms via geoblocking and even blocking educational platforms, in this way making it difficult to gain access to accurate and up to date education content. Last year, we created the smart contract development forum to share and build on the knowledge we acquired through this course and participating in hackathons. The forum grew fast and is now an active platform for Farsi speaking community consisting of over 550 members. We also taught a Smart Contract course in the summer of 2021. The request for participation in this course exceeded the capacity of the class with 150 applicants. However, given the limited volunteer labour and resources, we only accepted 35 eligible students. The course was co-founded and instructed by Women in Blockchain Farsi, and mentored by Shayan Eskandari. The course ran for 3 months and featured more than 40 hours of online classes and technical articles. In this course, students were first introduced to the basic concepts of blockchain and Ethereum, and were taught all the technical skills needed to develop smart contracts and decentralized applications. Thanks to the endless labour of our volunteers, the course was well received by students. We had a diverse range of students, even as young as 13 years old! Our graduates received their special POAP developer certification.A few testimonials from the graduates of the summer course: https://www.linkedin.com/posts/activity-6873020335860531200-u-3R/https://twitter.com/chichinaaa/status/1464862158773235721?s=20https://twitter.com/erfansafari14/status/1464935859657056263https://twitter.com/DibaMomeni/status/1464871828699205638?s=20​​https://twitter.com/amiralbertt/status/1464981792902074374?s=20Even though the course ended in September 2021, our work here isn’t done, we need your support!In this year’s ConsenSys Academy Ethereum developer bootcamp, we were able to sponsor 65 Farsi speaking individuals (45 from Iran and 20 from Afghanistan). Unfortunately, the course abruptly ended for most of our students due to unknown legal issues regarding their jurisdiction. Even though this was a hard blow for both our students and mentors, we managed to pick up the pieces and move forward. We are determined to continue spreading smart contract development education and teaching valuable skills to foster autonomy and grant access to decentralized finance. Latest update: Our Gitcoin grant also was suspended due to the "jurisdiction" of our students!!Please support us in our mission! Not only will your funds help ensure that our volunteers get fairly compensated for the hard labour they put into managing and maintaining this course, but it will also help ensure that the course content and materials stay accessible and free to everyone!Let’s build a more equitable future by ensuring that everyone - regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, and geographical location - can benefit from blockchain. ----------Here's the Women in Blockchain Farsi team:

Gaia Gives
Maxim Goeschen
Gaia Gives - Web3 Philanthropy for Radical TransparencyIf we’re serious about a regenerative future, philanthropy needs a revolution.The reality is modern philanthropy is inefficient, boring, and broken.Donors have a hard time finding vetted impact projects 🧐, don’t know where their money is spent 🔮, and rarely get updated on the true impact of their donation 🥱. Impact projects spend significantly to find donors 💰, struggle to engage donors 📣, and have no clear way to demonstrate their impact 📋.So we are creating Gaia Gives, a blockchain-based fundraising platform that promotes impact projects, with a radically transparent fundraising engine that enhances storytelling, aids fundraising, and rewards donors for their participation. Our platform is a complete rethinking of charitable giving, with the goal of turning donors into collaborators to help fuel a regenerative future.Why Gaia Gives can make an impact:Milestone Based Fundraising - Project goals are broken into achievable milestones with proceeding funds released after successful completion of each step.Transparent Budgets and Impact Verification - Projects submit proof for each milestone, and donors collectively verify if the goal was actually accomplished.Payments Tracked On Blockchain - Be certain your money is going to the right place with blockchain-powered track and trace payments.Curated Database of Impact Projects - Projects are verified for impact and fiscal responsibility before listing and supported with coaching and mentorship once accepted.Donate Cash and Crypto in Seconds - Smoothly create a wallet, allocate, and adjust monthly giving to multiple projects without paying additional gas fees. Get News Feed Updates At Every Step - Better stories lead to more donations. We help projects connect directly with their donors through dynamic project updates that easily reformat for social sharing to other platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, and Tiktok.Give Recurring Crypto Donations with minimal Gas Fees - Accepting 50+ cryptocurrencies and fiat, our wallet manages automated monthly donations and minimizes gas fees letting donors keep full custodianship of their funds.Built-In Fiat On and Off-Ramping - Accepting fiat and allowing the payment of fiat to 74 countries, an essential feature for less tech-savvy impact projects. Massive Launch Partners - The Ocean Cleanup Project, UNIFY, Viva Con Agua, Surfrider Foundation, and Grassroots Economics to name a fewToken Economy and Decentralization in 2023 - Tokens reward donors for giving, verifying milestones, and contributing to platform curation. We aim to gradually decentralize the platform’s governance with token holders providing governance direction.Fuel Our Future - Why Give?Until we close our first round of investment, we have little fuel in our tank to help build community and gain early traction. After 1.5 years of work, all members of the project are still working without a salary, having invested significantly into the project.Funds raised via Gitcoin will go towards helping us expand our community and begin preparing the market for our launch, as well as pay the salary pending of Patri.

Rios Limpios
“Rios Limpios” or “Clean Rivers”. In an effort to stop the pollution in the nearby rivers of San Savador, Baru Costa Rica, we have successfully installed several Grey water Filters. In Central America , as in many places in the world, there is very little awareness on how the water we use in our homes can end up contaminating water ways. Grey water, which is what we call the waste water that comes from the kitchen, laundry room and shower and other kitchen appliances. These waters often contain toxins from soaps, oils and chemicals and can have a strong negative impact on nature, particularly creeks, rivers and oceans and can effect local plants and wildlife.In many homes the grey water just flows right back into the local watershed.We want clean rivers and oceans, and we can do something about it !We have found a simple and inexpensive solution which uses plants and other organic materials to filter out the toxins before they end back up in the local watershed.We have successfully installed 5 filters in the Diamante Valley Community. These systems include one for a small community center, one for a local restaurant, and 3 residential home filter installations that had previously contaminated a nearby spring. Fine tuning the systems each time we install them, we have reached a point off success and wish to offer this simple solution to the whole community by to training a few teams so that we can create temporary employment for at least three locals. Through this program we also plan to educate by sharing step by step videos of the process and share documents online so that all the information is available to anyone who wants to recreate the design.We have received community interest and encouragement and are ready to take the next steps. All we need is your support.Costs to build a filterIt takes around 30 hours total for a team of 2 workers and one coordinator to make a filter.(We pay hourly rate of 3,000c per hour (4,7$), the average salary here is under 2,000c).Total man work = 90,000c ( 30*3000)Average costs of materials per house = 15,000c ( Pvc Pipes + connectors)Total cost to build a filter =105,000c= 165 USDYour donation will help us to :- Install filters.- Buy tools for the 2 teams : 4 palins, 4 shavels, 2 machete, 2 metal saw, 2 pruning saw.- Cover transportation cost when needed.- Develop our website.We’ve created a first video showing how to create the filters we are installing:

The Revillaging Mutual Mentorships Program is one of the many projects within the Diamante Bridge Collective.It aims to harness young minds and talent to intimately study community life, community funding, living in harmony with nature, and much more.Within our collective, we have several individuals who are each master in their own field. These individuals would normally find their skills used within the existing system, becoming another part of a machine which we have seen to cause harm to our planet and imbalance within our society. The goal of the Mutual Mentorship program is to liberate talented minds from this reality and harness their skills for the good of all: to practice and perfect the wisdom and tools necessary for building community and establishing a village. We offer multiple mentorship opportunities: each program led by a different mentor, each sharing their own unique skill sets. Our programs cover the key skill sets that are necessary for life in a thriving village community. The Revillaging Mutual Mentorship Program is a holistic approach to all aspects of a healthy life and community, and its intention is to train 3 community members for 3 roles necessary for the next phase of our evolution. Returning to the Village is about creating healthy regenerative systems on all levels of life, from the smallest microorganisms in the soil, to the waterways, to the youth and the elders and people within our local community and amongst our vast global community network. It is about the inner work as much as it is about “all our relations”, plant, animal, and human.Our first Cohort A, led along with “Community ABC’s” by Dani Bellavita, encompasses this Whole Systems approach to a thriving life.  MentorDani Bellavita (Gennety) - Social Permaculture: Revillaging the Inhabitants DaniBelle's mentorship is a gift of service for which she cannot accept compensation. Instead requests that additional donations to this mentorship program cover future scholarship recipients in this program.Revillaging Mutual Mentorship Program - Cohort A This program is the first of its kind and consists of a 3 month long Mutual Mentorship journey led by one of the DBC co-founders Dani Bellavita. The journey focuses on training Cohorts to fulfill specific roles newly created and very much needed within the ever-expanding Diamante Bridge Collective community. Structure of the programOur Mentorship programs start at 3 months and can last up to 12 months and include room and board. The first phase of the program is a one-month orientation period. Upon successful completion of the orientation phase, the participant will commence into the second phase, which is a 3-month internship (the first month having already been completed). Upon successful completion of the 3-month internship, we will celebrate as the participant graduates into entering the full Apprenticeship phase of the program, which means completing an additional 9 months. Upon successful completion of the 12-month program, the participant will be fully prepared and equipped to enter into long-term community life, should they wish to do so. As part of our program, they will have the opportunity to join our extensive network of communities affiliated with the Diamante Bridge Collective, located within Costa Rica and also internationally. Each community in our network offers a different flavor, style, and structure, and it’s important for individuals to find the place which is the best fit for their needs and values.From a perspective of growing community and roles to be taken, this mentorship program is focused on specific roles within the developing structure, and aims to establish functioning systems for our Collective. 12 months marks the completion of a natural solar cycle. Following this model, we see that 12 months is the necessary amount of time required for an individual to integrate deeply into a new way of living. Participants of the ProgramOur mentorship program is aimed primarily at integrating individuals into community life and filling future roles that will be necessary for a healthy, fast-growing, and sustainable community. It also prepares individuals to bridge the world of Crypto Economies with life on the ground working in harmony with our Earth and teaches them how to use this resource to further restore and protect our land. The goal of the program is the transmission of knowledge and wisdom from senior members of the community to the youth. This allows us to bridge the generations and ensures that the wisdom gleaned from a lifetime of experience is passed down to ensure the success, health, and empowerment of future generations.Cohorts are selected based on their skills and ability to live in harmony, be diplomatic, open and who exhibit strong communication and connection skills. They are eager to learn, expand, and eventually, to also pass on their wisdom to the next Cohort. They also act as a learning tool for Elder members, allowing both to share their unique abilities with one another and to help the Mentor hone their teaching skills. Those who choose to sponsor this program are helping to empower a group of community-oriented individuals who will then carry the wisdom and tools they need to create and connect communities wherever they are. Together, we can liberate a generation from life in individual-centric jobs which only succeed in further reducing our resources. With this program, we harness young talent and help to direct it towards the greater good: reestablishing harmony between each other and our Earth, using both tools of the land and tools of the digital world.  Funding requiredUS $3600 per person per 3 months (there are 3 spots/roles available)Funding will be used towards several aspects of the program:Food and accommodation for the participantLearning materials, tools and resources requiredTransportation Remuneration for other mentors Remuneration for other staff required to run the program “For most of human history we have lived as Villagers… Yet, in a matter of a few generations, much of the world’s populace has become imbalanced and disconnected from our environment and from each other, and we are seeing the ramifications of this disconnection across all spectrums of life...We as a species live at a critical crossroads, a time in which the impacts of our past and the potential of our future intersect. A time in which the choices each one of us make every day, and the decisions we collectively agree to influence, create the legacy for future generations.”- Excerpt from ReInhabiting the Village: CoCreating our future, by Jamaica Stevens

Samaanta Foundation
Trina Tamrakar
Samaanta Foundation is non-profit that provides quality higher education opportunities to students from poor socio-economic backgrounds in Nepal. It is a 501(c)(3) registered organization that provides comprehensive fellowships to meritorious students in need, to cover their educational expenses and support their overall holistic development. Samaanta foundation’s fellowships are comprehensive in nature, as such, it covers tuition fees, accommodation, transportation and any other related expenses. Fellows are placed in quality higher education institutions. Recognizing that success in higher education does not depend only on the classroom, the fellowship also offers i) mentorship, ii) networking opportunities, and iii) extra-curricular support such as workshops on civic sense, personal finance and mental health for fellows' holistic growth. In addition, Samaanta supports its fellows in acquiring English language proficiency to facilitate our fellows’ transition from public schools to private colleges.In a nutshell, what Samaanta offers its fellows is Education Plus. We seek to create an enabling environment for our fellows so that they do not only become empowered themselves but also contribute towards the empowerment of their communities. Our mission is not to provide charity but to reward the fellows for their good work and to encourage and support them to achieve even more in the days to come. Samaanta started as a pay-it-forward movement among four friends 10 years ago. It started out as a passion project that we worked on weekends, all volunteering and pooling in our own funds to kickstart. The foundation has now supported 76 students, out of which 46 are female. Since 2015, at least one Samaanta fellow has been selected to receive International United World College (UWC) scholarship to study abroad. To date, we have had nine fellows receive a UWC scholarship, out of which eight were female fellows. We have had one dentist graduate so far. Since 2015, 10 female fellows have received the Women LEAD fellowship, the first professional leadership development organization for young women in Nepal. We consider these milestones as strides in the right direction, considering it is a country where school enrollments of girls is still less in comparison to boys.ValuesOur three core values are Education, Empowerment and Equality. The word “samaanta” means “equality” in Nepalese. Thus Samaanta foundation aims to promote equality and empowerment by providing quality higher education to those in need. MissionEducation is increasingly considered an uncontested social good but it is only a particular kind and quality of education that leads to the transformative experience of empowerment and greater freedom. As explained in the “context” section below, such quality education remains beyond the reach of most aspiring students from public schools in Nepal. We believe that everyone should have equal opportunity to access quality education.The mission of the fellowship program therefore is to  Promote empowerment and equality through quality higher education We assist students throughout their high school and are now expanding to support high achieving fellows through their college career to access quality education. ObjectivesThe objective of the organization isTo provide comprehensive fellowships to facilitate quality higher education for meritorious needy students from rural communities in Nepal We are building an engaged, sustainable fellowship program to facilitate quality higher education for the poorest and most marginalized.Context: Higher education in NepalWhile the education sector in Nepal has expanded greatly in recent years, it suffers from various problems. Some of the key problems include the low quality of education, lack of relevance to the market needs and poor access for students from underprivileged households. While these problems affect the entire education sector, they are especially pronounced in higher education. The pervasive emphasis of international development agendas such as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and Education for All (EFA) have led to a disproportionate emphasis on primary and secondary education, to the peril of higher education. There are fewer scholarship opportunities and the costs of education are disproportionately high after secondary schooling. Poor access is a key problem for students from poor and underprivileged households. According to National Living Standards Survey 2011(NLSS), the higher secondary gross enrollment rate (GER) stands at 76%. Notably, the enrollment rate varies widely across poverty groups. The GER for the poorest 20% is 17%, compared to 148% for the richest 20%. Among those who can access education at this level, there is a widening gap between public and private school outcomes in Nepal, resulting in segregation of students along income status. The lack of socio-cultural and economic capital holds public school students back, as they do not get the same opportunities for upward mobility. Further, as the generation of students undergoing mass schooling aspires to middle class status, language of instruction becomes increasingly important, with English preferred as the international language. As public school students make the transition to higher secondary education, their inexperience in ‘modern’ settings as well as their lack of language fluency (lack of cultural capital) affects their performance in higher education.Selection of fellows Our target group is highly motivated, academically strong students from poor socio economic backgrounds. We have a rigorous selection mechanism in place to select the students that are most suited to the foundation’s goals. Our selection mechanism emphasizes all round excellence coupled with a strong commitment to social responsibility, so that the fellows can be effective change-makers in their communities and the country. SustainabilityThe fellowship program has been successful only with the support from individual and institutional donors as well as partner schools that believe in the equality of opportunity. We have also been working closely with United World Colleges (UWC). One of our fellows has been selected to study the International Baccalaureate at UWC Mostar this year. What Samaanta offers is solidarity and not charity. The Foundation currently relies on contributions from those that share our vision but we seek to develop a sustainable model through a dedicated endowment as well as a pay-back to pay-it-forward mechanism, whereby graduate fellows contribute back to support the initiative. This mechanism to give back to the Foundation is flexible to suit the needs of each fellow. We are thinking of the following ideas:Fellows will be required to pay back a certain amount of their fellowship investment once they are earning a certain minimum income. We expect our fellows to sponsor meritorious needy children in their own communities in primary and secondary levels, when our fellows are able to do so. Beyond finances, we expect our fellows to engage in their communities as positive contributors and continue to represent Samaanta values throughout their lives. We seek to create and sustain a critical mass of Samaanta fellows from different marginalized communities throughout rural Nepal to empower a powerful network of a new generation of change-makers at the local level and national level. We are able to work towards this vision only with the support of generous donors and institutional partners who collaborate with us on the basis of our share vision. Visit us at: https://samaantafoundation.org/

ROCK YOUR LIFE Mentoring
Stefan Schabernak
In a lot of countries educational success and career opportunities depend heavily on one’s socio-economic background. Young people from educationally disadvantaged families or with a migrational background are particularly disadvantaged. Furthermore, many educational systems (e.g. in Germany and other European countries) are very selective, allowing little educational and social mobility.At ROCK YOUR LIFE! we have been successfully working with children from underprivileged families since 2008. Helping kids to obtain proper education, finishing school and finding their first job is a major factor in tackling social inequality. We empower kids to find out who they really are and to unfold their true potential. We help them understand what self-efficacy really means and how they can take responsibility for their lives. To this end we establish 1-on-1 mentoring relationships between university students (mentors) and teenagers struggling to make their way (mentees). Our local chapters in over 52 German, Dutch, Spanish, Austrian and Swiss cities have already supported more than 9.000 children. More than 11.000 volunteers have contributed to ROCK YOUR LIFE!, making it one of Europe's largest mentoring networks. Our impact has been scientifically proved by the renowned German ifo Institute, which proved that ROCK YOUR LIFE! greatly helps its participants to unleash their potential.

Cofunding The DAOist
Guil M
WWW.THEDAOIST.CO | @TheDAOist_About the project The DAOist is a global collective that develops and evangelizes the DAO lifestyle. A relevant percentage of the work happens in meatspace, a relevant percentage of the work happens in the metaverse and a relevant percentage of the decision making will be on-chain.The DAOist is a movement that pushes the expansion of DAOs and produces cultural (public) goods that facilitate on-boarding and help foster relationships with legacy institutions. It manifests and nurtures common spaces where purposeful collaboration can flourish. It aims to establish itself as a DAO and borderless think tank for the decentralized future before the end of 2022.We do have big plans. "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step" - Tao Te Ching (The Book of the Way and of Virtue"). We have started our journey. Here are our first steps:Step 1.a: The DAOist Paris. 23rd of July 2021That's where everything has started. We planned to create a space for DAOists to share knowledge, learn from each other, celebrate steps that every community member makes every day towards a decentralized future. The event went successfully: around 400 participants, 8 hours of talks & workshops, afterparty; we've got positive feedback but the most important - we've detected a need for something like the DAOist. Something that can bring the community together. Click here to see what happened that day and watch all the talks. Step 1.b: The DAOist Lisbon. 19th of October 2021We were still digesting the Paris experience and weren't planning any events. However, we had too many requests about an event in Lisbon. Here we are - planning the DAOist Lisbon. The mission of this event is to bring more inspiration into the decentralized world and change the basic understanding of "crypto conferences."  Step 2. Educational platform + community We want to document the way and share it with the seekers of the knowledge. The community curates the content. For now, we have a YouTube channel with a collection of talks from the leaders of DAOspace. Recently we created a collaboration space for the community by launching a discord channel.

Este proyecto tiene un enfoque de intercambios beneficiosos en pro de la sostenibilidad asi como de apoyo mutuo entre distintos grupos/comunidades que habitan Costa Rica.Reconociendo de primero los grupos/comunidades que habitan desde hace mucho estas tierras, luego los que han estado migrando las ultimas decadas a este pais.Existe una urgencia de una mejor interelacion, de una apertura de ambos bandos hacia una mejor interacion.Podemos identificar situaciones que ocurren en muchas comunidades y encontrar la manera de apoyar nuestras luchas diarias, asi como proponer nuevas alternativas en pro de la naturaleza.Estos territorios tienen una historia y un presente muy marcado por luchas sociales y de terrritorio, encabezando recuperaciones de tierras que les pertenecen y sufriendo las consecuencias de vivir en un pais y un poder politico que les da la espalda.Asi mismo estas comunidades son portadoras de una inmensa sabiduria y conocimientos necesarios para el balance que la naturaleza necesita, especificamente estas comunidades se caracterizan por tener construcciones sostenibles, utilizando tecnicas ancestrales para la elaboracion de sus viviendas, asi como materiales sostenibles y renovables. Asi el primer "subproyecto" especifico: Uno de estos materiales que utilizan es la palma, hojas de suita o palma real, particularmente para la construccion de techos; siendo este material una opcion duradera y segura si se tiene el conocimiento para trabajarlo. A su vez, es un recurso muy vasto en la region sur del pais y especificamente en sus territorios.Paralelamente vemos el incremento de extrajeros habitando el pais, consiguiendo sus papeles y planeando vivir y construir sus casas aca. Dentro de este grupo hayamos un porcentaje que se inclina a la conservacion, a la sostenibilidad, al menos al intento de tener un mejor balance con los recursos naturales a la hora de construir. Podemos observar poca oferta y opciones para utilizar recursos del lugar y que tienen un impacto menor a la hora de cosecharse. Con este panorama, podemos ver facilmente el intercambio que podria suceder para satisfacer necesidades de ambos lados. Por un lado habria un incentivo para los extranjeros de acercarse mas a la cultura del pais, a caminar con respeto estas tierras y a experimentar intercambios culturales enriquecedores. Por otro lado, se abririan muchos caminos para los indigenas para fortalecer sus voces, para adquirir recursos para invertir en sus proyectos y en sus luchas, asi mismo pueden optar por llegar a mas lugares y oidos para hacer saber sus realidades y asi buscar apoyo en mas lugares.A un nivel personal, la expansion de las visiones, la conexion con este lugar y su gente. La inclusion de los valores que guardan los pueblos indigenas y la gente de campo.Yo(Juan Pablo) he estado invirtiendo en relaciones con personas de estos territorios y estoy en una posicion en la cual puedo ser intermediario para que proyectos regenerativos entre DBC y estas comunidades se gesten. Por lo que he estado en comunicacion con la comunidad Cabecar de China Kicha y Don Ulises del pueblo Boruca, para empezar la construccion de un rancho en Diamante Luz, utilizando las hojas de la palma para su techo, dicha construccion sera guiada por Don Ulises y personas de su comunidad que nos ofreceran la capacitacion para el tejido de las hojas y sus respectivos procesos y cuidados. La idea es adquirir las hojas de palma de la comunidad de China Kicha e invitar a alguno de sus miembros para colaborar en el tejido y montaje. Con esto buscamos crear el primer modelo para observar la eficiencia del techo y su sostenibilidad, tambien compartir y capacitar a mas gente en estos temas en busca de mas colaboraciones e ideas que puedan surgir. El rancho sera el lugar de fuego del Centro Cultural y de Artes que se planea construir en DLuz.*Buscamos financiar esta primera construccion, desde los materiales hasta la mano de obra**Se desglozaran los detalles de precios y tiempos muy pronto*

Fable DAO
J Everett Nichol
We are Fable DAO, a collection of artists, writers, fans and Commonauts that aim to become a hub for the media commons. Our ultimate goal is to be the premier organization for funding the entertainment media commons. Creators will be able to approach the DAO for grants and receive extensive support, all using the Commons Stack suite of tools and mechanisms. The project intends to bloom into many pods building free culture in their own ways. We imagine free educational workshops for holders of $Fable to empower fan-creators, a localization pod for translating open-source work into neglected languages, teams of concept artists, designers and devs whose full time job it is to help funded projects succeed, and much more.We have been building community and gathering like-minded individuals since our participation in the Commons Stack Prize, and are ready to move to the next level. We are seeking funding to hold bigger and better events, to experiment with new forms of commons-based peer production and to raise the money necessary to establish ourselves fully as a DAO. We have begun a series of Twitter Spaces, aim to have professional promo materials made, and have a great idea to raise money using custom-designed 1/1 character NFT’s. Each will be collaboratively imagined, with art realized by professional artists, and released into the Creative Commons, using Joke DAO as a model and inspiration.We hope you will consider contributing, and if you can’t at this time, but the idea strikes a chord, please join our Discord and help us create a world where creators, fans and the commons can all benefit.
