Paxful, the peer-to-peer (P2P) bitcoin marketplace, has announced new developments in its #BuiltWithBitcoin charitable initiative. The company has granted scholarships to female Afghan refugees in the U.S., and provided additional resources for the Rwandan nursery school that it helped construct.

Helping Afghan Women
“As a recipient of the Zam Zam Water scholarship, I’d like to express endless gratitude and appreciation to Paxful and everyone involved in the donation process,” said Susan Naseri. “Receiving this scholarship is not only an immense honor and privilege; it also eases my financial stress significantly. I’m beyond humbled and thankful for this scholarship; thank you eternally for helping me expand my education and fulfill my dreams.”
Investing in Africa
The initiative also recently welcomed cryptocurrency provider Anthem Gold, which donated enough bitcoin to build a 35,000-liter water tank in Rwanda, and funded the cultivation of over eighty sustainable community gardens as well as thirty goats for two villages. “I am grateful to participate in a project that builds sustainable and essential projects for communities in need,” said Anthem Hayek Blanchard, CEO of Anthem Gold. “We hope to use Zam Zam’s knowledge to provide people with the building blocks needed to foster and grow.”
Ray Youssef, the CEO of Paxful, was recently interviewed on the Humans of Bitcoin podcast about why Africa needs bitcoin.
