Kuje is a Local Government Area in Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory known for its high population density and limited resources, resulting in socioeconomic problems such as poverty, unemployment, inadequate housing, poor access to education and healthcare, lack of infrastructure, poor waste management and environmental degradation. Efforts are being made to address these issues through community development programs and infrastructure investment. The event aimed to bring awareness as to how blockchain may accelerate progress. The attendees included local craftsmen, school teachers, students and blockchain developers. The community was introduced to concepts such as NFTs, DeFi, and smart contracts. The event serves as a foundation for future projects Impact Plus is exploring in developing communities in Nigeria.
