CARE chooses Celo as first Blockchain partner in Latin America

Aug 11, 2021

Share CARE USA, a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty,  announced that it has selected Celo, an open-source blockchain ecosystem focused on making decentralized financial (DeFi) systems and tools accessible to anyone with a smartphone, to leverage the benefits of blockchain technology for the first time in its program in Latin America. NGOs and relief organizations are working with Celo to provide blockchain-powered aid delivery for a number of reasons. Currently, antiquated technologies and centralized systems make tracking transfers from donor to beneficiary slow and inaccurate, introducing opportunities for fraud and graft. With transactions recorded on an immutable ledger — the Celo blockchain — it is easy to trace funds from their origin to the intended recipients. No one can edit the ledger and the record of transactions is open, accessible and easily auditable. Celo’s fully transparent blockchain technology provides quicker reconciliation, recording transactions automatically and in real-time, which allows for fast payment finality and real-time analytics that current systems do not provide. Further, because there are no financial intermediaries in this process, the high operating costs for cross border transfers and payments to individuals can be eliminated. This means that more funds can be provided to those who need it most. Related Posts In collaboration with Emerging Impact, the Celo Foundation has launched a program with CARE based on digital cash and voucher assistance as a part of a broader effort championed by Celo’s Alliance for Prosperity, an ecosystem of 150+ mission-aligned organizations including nonprofits, merchants, and payment processors fostering social impact using the Celo blockchain. CARE aims to end global poverty by specifically focusing on the critical and underserved population of women and girls. CARE International member CARE Ecuador will use Celo’s cUSD stablecoin as a voucher-based system to create a digitized process that will ensure the secure dissemination of its humanitarian aid to Ecuadorian women in need of health services. The cUSD vouchers will be disbursed through the Umoja platform developed by Emerging Impact. “The benefits blockchain can provide are potentially tremendous. We’ve chosen to work with Celo not only because their technology is some of the best we’ve reviewed, but because they’ve built a thriving network of like-minded organizations,” said Christian Pennotti, Senior Director, Market Based Approaches at CARE. “This program will help deliver critical healthcare support to women in Ecuador efficiently and transparently while connecting us with other groups delivering necessary aid around the world.” “Working with leaders like CARE shows that Celo is the blockchain of choice for major NGOs looking for a better way to deliver aid,” said Will Le, Partner, Innovation at Celo. “As someone with roots in philanthropy who ran a cash transfer program, I’m familiar with the frictions of supplying aid using traditional centralized financial systems. I would’ve loved to have a solution like Celo and Umoja that makes delivering much-needed assistance faster, cheaper, and more transparent.”
