Bitcoin helps Afghan girls preserve their wages and keep them safe. With bitcoin, no one other than the payee has to know that she has been paid via a digital wallet. The girls are paid in a timely manner with minuscule fees.
Afghan women are rocking the boat for their social and financial freedoms, and their opponents wouldn’t even know it, thanks to an organisation that pays them to exercise those rights – in bitcoin. Women’s Annex Foundation (WAF) encourages girls to think independently and discerningly through blog writing, software development, video production and social media. It gives them a platform to send their ideas into the world that both pays for them in bitcoin and provides free Web access in a safe place.
