At Learning Lions we educate young people, from impoverished and isolated areas of East Africa, in IT and business skills. Our aim is that they achieve economic independence, through their own effort and work, by selling digital products on online outsourcing platforms. We show them a clear path to follow, and support them all the way. In doing so, they can join the global digital economy to earn a living and, at the same time, boost their communities.
In these first years of existence, we have achieved proof-of-concept for our educational and empowerment program. And we have seen the power of digital literacy to change lives, first hand. Now is the time to scale up in Turkana and beyond. We can do more: offer digital vocational training for more and larger cohorts of talented individuals. There are many waiting to enter the program. You can help us to make it happen. Thank you!

The Learning Lion is amongst the very first charities in Africa to accept cryptocurrencies for donations. But not any cryptocurrencies – the charity will exclusively accept GLX Stablecoin as a stable mean of payment.
This new way to donate will provide unmatched transparency and traceability of the funds, as well as a cheaper way to donate (i.e. donating in one currency, and exchanging in another currency always results in huge transaction fees and slow settlement time).

GLX donations are used to welcome more students in the Basic and Advanced Training. GLX is a stable digital currency that enables a new payment system and a completely digital money.
It is pretty muck like cash but for the Internet, and without the volatility of cryptocurrencies.
