Stars of Africa is a tribute to the continent which has been the birthplace of life and civilization. The beauty and the rich history of Africa consists of many stories untold or unknown to the bigger global population. Stars of Africa wants to highlight the African continent by telling its history and culture. We are launching an #NFT collection representing a good collection of Africans best and most famous, we will share details and background stories. We are the African Stars!
What it does
We built a community of turu warriors with a connection to the African continent and culture, who are helping to spread the gospel of Africa to the world and who together with the wider TuruGlobal team will support local communities using crypto (TRON) as one of our key tools. We have a Africa Stars NFT collection minting key people, artifacts or event of the African Continent into the blockchain to store these for future generations. We will provide incentives to holders of these NFT's to generate some passive income. Besides this we are integrating our Turu Angels charity NFT fundraising initiative to raise funds supporting African communities in the 7 different charity sections represented by our 7 Angels
How we built it
The core of the African Stars is our website, which we want to help grow into a documented testimony to the history and current culture of the African continent. This will be build and maintained by the community, where TuruGlobal creates the infrastructure and maintenance to do so.
Challenges we ran into
One of the surprising challenges was to find proper charities which are close enough to the people and which do not roam lots of funds to manage the charity. Finding a local Turu warrior community in Africa was instrumental to find charities close to the people
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We have started three initiatives together with our team in Africa:
- Three Archdeaconry Choir (TAC) Lagos supporting the local community
- Cryptoschool in Ghana for free crypto education using Tron and TuruGlobal ecosystem as a base
- Talented Minds Music School in Ghana for free music education to the poorer community
What we learned
When you have build a solid community of supporters, the sky is the limit
What's next for Africa Stars
Launch the Turu Angels NFT project as a fundraiser for charity. The Africa Stars NFT have been launched to bring awareness to Africa and the website has been constructed and is receiving trafffic. We have set up cooperations with charities and content providers for our website. We will continue to build the range of charities supported through Turu Angels.
