BEES BY SEED MADAGASCAR, 2020
SEED Madagascar partnered with Sweatcoin for our first crowdfunding campaign in April of 2020. Our campaign was for a sustainable livelihoods and beekeeping project that urgently needed support.
Not only did the donation we receive from Sweatcoin boost our project funds, but the campaign raised awareness and more donations from many Sweatcoin users.
Since the campaign ended, we have also doubled our email list thanks to people opting in to hear more from us through the app and we’re delighted to have increased our reach internationally.
Working with a platform like Sweatcoin is both a great way for charities to raise awareness of their work, particularly small organisations like SEED, but also a great way for the app users to learn about different causes.

Reach Within, based in the West Indies, launched the 10 for 10 Campaign as a direct response to the COVID-19 crisis.
Many vulnerable young adults and families with whom we work immediately lost their income and access to food security as a result of the pandemic. Residential care homes, who typically supplement their food supply with donations from restaurants and hotels, were also suddenly unable to provide wholesome meals for children in care.
Thanks to the 10 for 10 Campaign and the generous donation from Sweatcoin Members, Reach Within is providing nourishing food to our community through a small scale farming project. In order to create sustainable change, we are also applying our knowledge in trauma informed care to help children and young adults reconnect back to the land; while also teaching them the skills to create their own gardens and grow food for their own communities.

REFUGEE RELIEF, 2020
Preemptive Love partnered with Sweatcoin to focus on relief for refugees around the world under lockdown due to COVID-19.
Many families in Venezuela and in refugee camps in Iraq were hungry. Without access to work, families are unable to purchase food. Through the Sweatcoin campaign, Preemptive Love reached a new audience to spread awareness and catalyze action for serving the most vulnerable.
The donation from Sweatcoin provided food packs delivered door-to-door to hungry families in Iraq and Venezuela. So no one starves in quarantine.

THE TURTLE FOUNDATION
NESTING SEASON IN INDONESIA, 2020
With the help of your Sweatcoin donations, The Turtle Foundation built a hatchery at the beach on Buggeisiata, Indonesia, where they have been protecting the Leatherbacks since 2017.
The Foundation has 8 rangers who patrol the beaches to protect the turtles from poachers. Nests are moved to the guarded hatchery, where the hatchlings can develop undisturbed from poachers and natural predators.
In the nesting season 2018/2019 there were 55 nests from Leatherbacks. 44 of them were relocated into the hatchery. Out of these, 3,085 hatchlings were safely born and released to the ocean.

VILLAGE BY VILLAGE, 2020
The global Covid19 pandemic knows no borders and the impact has been felt in Ghana.
With lockdowns, school closures and social distancing measures in place, our work has been greatly impacted particularly with the primary school children.
This has meant that we’ve had to adapt how we continue to deliver our mantra of “Clean Hands Saves Lives”.
To do this we have set up hand washing stations in 12 villages, and delivered health messaging while maintaining social distancing to ensure the safety of our staff.

WATER FOR PEOPLE
WATER AND SANITATION STATION IN MALAWI, 2020
Water and sanitation services bring transformational change to school communities.
Students in Chilomoni Primary School in Blantyre, Malawi previously had to drink from a shared bucket of water in their classroom. The toilet blocks didn’t provide a dignified place for students to go to the bathroom.
Water For People’s work in schools like Chilomoni Primary School is crucial to ensuring that the next generation of students has safe and hygienic school environments.
New drinking stations mean no more dipping cups into shared buckets of water in classrooms. Improved toilet blocks mean no more missing class or going to the bathroom in the bush.
Handwashing stations mean diseases like cholera stop spreading.
Menstrual hygiene resources mean girls can stay in school when they’re on their periods.
In 2019, Water For People reached 364 schools with access to improved water, sanitation, and hygiene services, and the work continues. Thank you for your support!

HEALTH SCREENING IN MALI, 2020
Embrace Relief’s Mobile Health Clinic was able to conduct 560 health screenings for people in Mali, Africa, thanks to active and kind users of Sweatcoin!
Our volunteer doctors drove the Mobile Health Clinic to remote places in Mali, where many never see a doctor in their lifetime.
Millions of people in Mali do not have access to or cannot afford proper healthcare which drastically increases the spread of disease and mortality rate.
These standard health check-ups include taking blood pressure, heart rate, breathing capacity, eye exams, hearing exam, scoliosis check, and inspecting any abnormal symptoms, growths, or spots a patient might have.
This is in hopes to fight and prevent the rampant diseases of malaria, cholera, hepatitis, meningitis, polio, rabies, and tuberculosis. Thank you to the Sweatcoin community for bringing accessible healthcare to the people of Mali!
