Ubuntu Pathways transforms the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children from cradle to career, in the townships of Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

“Our partnership with Electroneum will help us break the cycle of poverty for over 2,000 vulnerable children and their families, and will ensure that a child’s birthplace does not determine her future.” – Ubuntu Pathways UK Director Beth Honig

Electroneum recently completed the launch of their new Moderated Blockchain, powered by its Proof of Responsibility protocol, which brings in trusted NGO miners who are in line with their vision, helping them raise funds for their cause.

“Our new trusted miners are NGOs with a verified track record of helping thousands of people improve their lives by providing them with the assistance, skills and training they need to live more.” – Electroneum CEO Richard Ells.
